Roger Bacon forward Justin Johnson nails a 3-point shot.
Felicity-Franklin came back in the final seconds to knock off Marion Local 65-62 in the Regional Semifinal on Wednesday night.
The win helps avenge the Regional Semifinal loss last year, and allows Felicity to advance to the Regional Championship for the first time since 1994.
Ashley Moored and Megan Ruwe led the way for Felicity-Franklin, as they have most of the season. Moore ended with 24 points, while Ruwe added 19.
The Cardinals committed two late turnovers against the Marion Local press to allow Marion to keep the game close, but Moore took control from there.
Coach Kerry Stamper said the goal down the stretch was simple, “We wanted the ball in Ashley’s hands down the stretch, and she came through for us.”
Stamper also mentioned she played on the last Felicity-Franklin team to advance this far in postseason play.
