Tanner, West girls to host subregion games

— Tanner and West Limestone’s girls basketball teams will host subregion basketball games Thursday after winning their respective area tournaments Saturday night.

Tanner outlasted host Lexington 40-38 in overtime to earn the right to stay at home for its playoff game Thursday.

Class 2A, No. 4 Lexington will to travel to No. 5 Red Bay while Tanner will host Phil Campbell, which lost to Red Bay 42-19 Saturday.

West Limestone’s area championship was less dramatic, beating Central 48-26 to win its area championship for the second consecutive year. West Limestone will host Priceville Thursday for a chance to advance to the Northwest Regional at Wallace State.

Athens suffered a 49-43 defeat to Lawrence County Saturday night in its area championship and will travel to Cullman for a subregion game Thursday.
