The #1 seeded Luxemburg-Casco Spartan girls basketball team defeated the #9 Seymour Thunder 78-42 Friday night in a WIAA Division 2 regional semi-final. The Spartans trailed early 6-2 but took control of the game late in the first half, capped off by a three pointer right before the buzzer by Jordan Bukouricz to take a 40-20 halftime lead. The Spartans poured it on in the second half to take an over-40 point lead and trigger a continuous clock with about four minutes left. Bukouricz led the Spartans with 16 points for the game.
The Spartans will now play for the regional championship Saturday against #5 seeded Green Bay Southwest who knocked off West De Pere 49-42.
