Girls final set with Thorsby’s win

Thorsby’s girls basketball team on Friday advanced to the county tournament championship game with a 49-14 win over Isabella.

The No. 2 seed Rebels will play No. 1 seed Maplesville at 5 p.m. Saturday. The Red Devils defeated Jemison on Thursday in the other semifinal game.

Maplesville could pose the most significant threat to date to Thorsby’s perfect record.

It was never close in the win over Isabella. Thorsby led 21-2 at one point early in the second period. The Rebels were up 29-7 at halftime and 38-12 at the end of the third period in a physical game.

Thorsby’s Sharonda Cooper led all scorers with 14 points.

Teammate Amanda Hubbard wasn’t far behind with 12 points.
