Frost's Kinsley Fuller, seen here hitting a drive against Dawson in a first-round game at the Kiwanis Classic, scored seven points for Frost Tuesday.

 In the first girls’ semifinal of the Kiwanis Classic, the Teague Lady Lions outlasted the Frost Lady Bears, 39-32, to advance to Saturday night’s championship game. Teague will  play Kerens at 6 p.m.

Both teams struggled to score in the first half, with the Lady Lions taking a 18-11 edge into intermission.  In the second half, Teague would take advantage of their height advantage, extending the lead to 16 points, 34-18. 

Frost would fight back in the final quarter, using defense to open the fourth quarter with an 11-2 run to close to within seven, 36-29.  But Frost struggled to score down the stretch before Kinsley Fuller hit a three-point shot at the final buzzer to pull the final margin back to seven points, 39-32.

Meeyah Davis would lead the Lady Lions with 12 points, while Reagan Heegins added 10 points.  For Frost, Kyra Ceda would lead the way with 11 points and Fuller added seven.  Also scoring for the Lady Bears were Jimena Perez (4 points), Sydney Woods (4), Gentry Rogers (2), Emily De La Hoya (2), and Madeline Lee (2).

Frost will return to action in the third-place game on Saturday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. against Mildred.
