Moeller did miss a free throw with :09 left, allowing Mason a three-point shot by Puisis, but it was a miss. A final heave by Ben Schutte would have tied the game, but the 75-footer hit the backboard to the right of the rim.

Their opponent, Turpin HS, made a legitimate upset bid attempt, but was overcome by the Comets 2nd half energy and offensive rebounding to fall by a final score of 37-34.

The Comets were held to just 27% shooting from the field, and committed an uncharacteristical 15 turnovers.

In the first half Turpins defense and efffective 3-point shooting led to a 19-9 lead at the half.

REGIONAL SEMI-FINAL

vs. Lakota West, 8:00

@ Kettering Fairmiont

won 44-43 23-3 15-1


The Mason Girls Basketball team earned a spot in the Regional Final on Wednesday night by defeating #2 ranked Lakota West 44-43, in a thrilling and emotional contest between the two GMC powerhouses. The Comets and Firebirds were meeting for a "rubber match" after splitting games in the regular season and sharing the 2016-17 GMC crown. Last year the schools met in the regional final, with Mason winning handily (49-30). This contest had all the makings of another classic and didn't disappoint. 

In a back-and-forth first half that featured six lead changes, four ties and the widest lead was Lakota West’s four-point first-quarter margin, sophomore Sammie Puisis scored eight points to lead the Comets to a 21-18 halftime lead. Puisis went on to lead Mason with 13 points and 5 of 6 from the charity stripe. 

Junior Anna Brinkmann logged a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds for Mason, which actually took the lead for good at 18-16 on a Puisis bucket in the last two minutes of the first half and led by as many as eight points twice in the third quarter.

In the final quarter Mason had chances to put the game away, but struggled from the free throw line. The Comets went to the line 32 times in the contest, but only sank 18. Meanwhile West was not going away without a fight. A West layup with 16.6 seconds left cut Masons lead to one point. West had a couple more chances to tie or take the lead in the final seconds, but either fouled or turned the ball over. Mason missed two free throw tosses with 3.4 seconds and a West halfcourt heave fell short as the buzzer sounded. Mason hung on to earn their third trip to the Regional Final in the past four seasons. 

Of note, several Comets came off the bench to make contributions after an injury to Samari Mowbray. Saylor Norton, Kyra Simmons and Makenzie Dixon played important roles in the Mason win. 

The Mason Comets (24-3) ranked fifth in the state will carry the GMC banner into an "Elite Eight" match up with Mt. Notre Dame (23-4) on Saturday night, March 11th @ 7:00 PM at Fairmont High School's Trent Arena.  MND, the #4 team in the Enquirer poll, upset McAuley 37-36 in the Regional opener to punch their ticket to the finals. 

Its been over 5 years since the two schools played each other in the 2012 post season. Mason defeated MND 44-16 in a first round sectional contest that year to advance. The winner of Saturday's Elite Eight matchup will advance to the OHSAA "Final Four".

The Girls will be seeking their 5th Regional Title in the history of Mason Girls basketball storied program.

CONGRATULATIONS TO MASON SOPHOMORE SAMMIE PUISIS. SHE HAS BEEN NAMED THE ASSOCIATE PRESS SOUTHWEST DISTRICT PLAYER OF THE YEAR!

Mason, which led most of the contest, struggled in the final mintues, while MND executed down the stretch to steal the win and advance.

Mount Notre Dame trailed 8-1, after not registering a field goal until almost two minutes remained in the opening quarter. A 5-0 run trimmed their deficit to two at the end of the period.

The Cougars tied the score at 10-10 with under five minutes left until halftime, but after the two teams traded baskets, Mason went on a 5-0 run of their own, claiming a 17-12 lead at the half.

In the beginning of the second half, Mason extended their lead to eight after a three-pointer from sophomore forward Sammie Puisis, but the teams stayed even in the quarter as Mason led 22-17 headed into the fourth. Puisis finished with 8 points and Anna Brinkman added 10 and a double-double with 12 rebounds.

After Mount Notre Dame cut their deficit to three in the opening minute of the fourth quarter, the Comets went on a 7-2 run and grabbed another eight-point lead with less than five minutes remaining.

However, Mount Notre Dame refused to back down. The Cougars went on an 8-0 run, tying the score at 29 points, and then claimed their first lead of the game with just more than two minutes left at 34-33. Mason only scored once more the remainder of the game, and Mount Notre Dame clinched the 41-35 win ending a great season for the Comets (23-4 overall, 15-1 GMC.
