6A Semifinals was definitely a tale of two games. In a competitive division, the best teams quickly stood out, while two teams were unfortunately left behind with nothing. Both of these games featured some high level talent and some really tough, hardworking teams. Here are the scores:

Forest v. Bartow, Class 6A Semifinals, 24-63 Bartow wins

Charlotte v. Mater Academy, Class 6A Semifinals, 53-59 (OT) Mater Academy wins
