North Augusta, SC--North Augusta girls knocked off North Myrtle Beach 75-60 Monday night to punch their ticket to the state semifinals on Friday.

"We've talked about this being a normal basketball game. Although it's a different situation, it's just basketball. You still have to play. I think they've relaxed a little bit, and they're playing a lot better then they did the first game. They were pressuring us. That's a lot of pressure to put the young kids under so I thought it was better to finish the game with our older kids." said Al Young
