Westhill girls upend Ludden, advance to B-1 final

Warriors go to 20-0, will meet unbeaten South Jefferson

— Tripodi never got that fourth foul, instead notching all seven of her points after the break to go with six assists. Ross backed up her 15 points with eight rebounds and five assists.

In defeat, Ludden, who finished with a 15-5 mark (all but two of the losses to Westhill), got 14 points from Roy and 10 points from Natalie Barletta, though that could not make up for Kibling's struggles.

So now Westhill looks toward a luminous B-1 final Tuesday night against South Jefferson, who is also 20-0 and burning to avenge last year's playoff defeat to the Warriors. The winner goes to the Carrier Dome March 2 for the overall Class B final against Skaneateles or Hannibal.

To get here, the Spartans upended 18-1, state no. 2-ranked Utica-Notre Dame 62-57 in the other semifinal, holding Jugglers star Emily Durr to 14 points while getting four players to score in double figures - Amanda Roberts, Austin Stevens (17 points each), Clarissa Perry (13 points) and Brooke Vancoughnett (10 points).
