The Spearville Lady Lancers had trouble getting their offense going against the Bucklin Lady Aces in their Southern Plains-Iroquois Activities Association girls semifinal contest Thursday night at United Wireless Arena. The Lady Lancers finally got their style of play in the final quarter to rally for the 45-39 victory over Bucklin to advance to Saturday night's championship game. Spearville was 5-of-7 from the field and from the free throw line in the final stanza as the Lady Lancers were able to speed up the game and rally from a six-point deficit against the patient Lady Aces. "We finally started to getting the ball inside a little bit because our outside shots weren't falling," Spearville head coach Lorie Stein said. "We got a couple of those and then we were able to start making them from the outside when we needed to. "We didn't play well. Bucklin is well coached and had a good game plan; but we were just able to get over that hump in the fourth quarter." Tausha Craft led Spearville (11-1) with 13 points, while Rachel Slattery added 12 in the Lady Lancers' win. Janae Price scored 17 to lead Bucklin (9-4). The first quarter saw Craft hitting two 3-pointers as Spearville hit three of its first four shots in the contest on the way to leading 12-7 after the opening quarter; but Bucklin used the shooting of Price late in the second stanza to cut the margin down to 20-19 at halftime. Spearville was 7-of-15 from the field in the first half while the Lady Aces made eight of their 21 shots. The Lady Aces continued to play patient against Spearville in the third quarter, and they responded by shooting 6-of-10 from the field for a 33-29 lead. The Lady Lancers were 3-of-15 from the field and 3-of-10 from the line. Spearville was able to tie the game at 37-37 with 3:15 left, then closed out the game with an eight-point run that was started by a banked three-point basket by Chesna Ratzlaff with 2:32 on the clock for her only points of the night. The Lady Lancers then closed out with a field goal and three free throws in the final minute of the game. Bucklin was 3-of-11 from the field in the final quarter and had two chances to tie or take the lead, but wasn't successful either time. Spearville will face defending tournament champion Ingalls in the championship game at 6 p.m. Saturday; while Bucklin plays South Central in the girls third place game at 2:30 p.m. SPEARVILLE (45) -- Chesna Ratzlaff 3, Tausha Craft 13, Brooke Offerle 8, Cody Offerle 9, Rachel Slattery 12.
