In the end, it was the Lady Lionsâ momentum that won out as they handed the host Dragons a 54-38 defeat at Phil Weybright Gymnasium.
Bremen will play the winner of tonightâs postponed contest between Oregon-Davis and New Prairie in the girls semifinals at LaVille Thursday at 6:30 p.m.

CULVER â Culverâs Rob Reinhold may have summed up the enormity of Saturdayâs benefit for his family in describing the event: âOverwhelming.â
Family members, friends, and attendees in general would concur, though the question lingers as to what was more overwhelming: the incredible community turnout or the amount of money raised. In both cases, the numbers are â well, overwhelming.
PLYMOUTH â A usually very "played in" kid's room, sparkling with freshly cleaned floors and walls. Tidied-up animal cages. Calm dogs, worn out from exercise. A group of fifth graders learning about decimals in a new way.
These were some of the small, yet meaningful contributions that Plymouth Key Club students made to the community Monday as they did service tasks in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. About 60 students worked at the Marshall County Humane Society, the Boys and Girls Club, and Riverside Intermediate School.
