Girls try for high five tonight

Bryan Veginski

Morton is seeking its fifth consecutive girls basketball regional championship tonight.

The Potters face rival Metamora at 7:30 p.m. in the Class 3A Washington Regional final.

No. 1 seed Morton (21-9) defeated Limestone Tuesday, 50-40. The third-seeded Redbirds (18-11) got to this point by downing Pontiac Monday, 65-44, and Washington Tuesday, 65-51.

The Potters beat Metamora for the regional title in 2007 before finishing fourth in the last two-class state final.

Morton has won eight of the last nine meetings against the Redbirds.
