BOONEVILLE -- The Kossuth girls’ squad came out to play Thursday night at Northeast against the Alcorn Central Lady Bears as they won in a romp, 66-44, in the semifinals of the Division 1-3A Tournament.

Kossuth (22-5) will take on Booneville, which knocked off second-seeded Belmont in the final game, tonight at Northeast in the title round as they hope to continue their journey to the Big House in Jackson.

The first quarter was as close as it got as the Lady Aggies headed into the second period with a 16-14 lead. KHS increased its lead from every quarter on. Kossuth shot 7-of-19 from behind the arc, accounting for 21 of its 66 total points. They finished the game with only nine turnovers and forced the Golden Bears to commit six of their own.
