The Logan County High School girls’ basketball team advanced to the semifinals of the Fourth Region Tournament on Sunday by knocking off defending champion Allen County-Scottsville 47-41 at E.A. Diddle Arena.

It was the second straight season with a first-round victory in the Fourth Region Tournament for the Lady Cougars, who led just 20-18 at halftime and trailed heading into the fourth quarter before pulling out the victory.

Rachel Barnett led Logan County in scoring with 13. Torrie Pollard scored 12, which put her over 1,000 points for her career. And Cierra Johnson added 10 points of her own.

Earlier in the season, Logan County lost 51-42 to Allen County-Scottsville, which ends the season with a 25-5 overall record.
