CLARION, Pa. — Even though they led by 17 points a couple minutes into the fourth quarter, the Moniteau Lady Warriors had to hold on for a 55-46 win over Brookville in the District 9 Class AA quarterfinals Wednesday night at Clarion Area High School.

As it turned out, Moniteau won despite being outscored 10-3 to start the game and 18-4 during Brookville’s furious comeback in the fourth quarter that got it within three points at 48-45 with 43 seconds remaining.

Three players reached double figures for the fourth-seeded Lady Warriors (15-8), who now meet top-seeded Karns City in next week’s semifinals at a site and time to be announced.

Kristina DeMatteis finished with 18 points and eight rebounds, Stephanie McCall had a double-double with 17 points and 10 rebounds and Sara Hull added 11 points and nine rebounds.

The Lady Warriors outrebounded Brookville, 36-28, with 14 offensive rebounds.

Brookville (13-10) started hot with the 10-3 run before Moniteau seized control of the game and outscored the Lady Raiders, 32-8, during a stretch that lasted until the 3:06 mark of the third quarter where it had its first 17-point lead at 35-18.

Then after Stephanie McCall’s basket gave Moniteau a 44-27 lead at the 5:33 mark of the fourth quarter, Brookville went on its run sparked by Brenna Dworek, who finished with a game-high 19 points. She scored eight points in the Lady Raiders’ hot start in the first quarter and added eight more points in the fourth quarter. Her basket cut the lead to 48-45 with 43 seconds remaining before Moniteau was able to seal the win by hitting 7 of 8 free throws the rest of the way.

Hali Olson scored nine points and hauled down 14 rebounds for Brookville.
