CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Isaac Thornton scored 11 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter to lift Martinsburg to a 55-46 win over John Marshall in the West Virginia boys Class AAA quarterfinals on Wednesday.

No. 2 Martinsburg (24-2) moves on to the semifinals on Friday for the first time since 2003.

Martinsburg's Michael Cole added 13 points and 12 rebounds while Cameron Cato scored 12.

Martinsburg came from seven points down to take the lead for good, 47-44, on a 3-pointer by Inshan Mohamed with 3:39 left in the game. That started the Bulldogs on an 11-0 run and put the Bulldogs in control.

Martinsburg will play Friday against the winner of Thursday's Musselman-Woodrow Wilson game.
