The Championship game of the Hermann Invitational Tournament Friday night literally will amount to teams fighting like cats and dogs.

The Hermann Lady Bearcats moved into the title contest Wednesday night by defeating the New Haven Lady Shamrocks while the St. Clair Lady Bulldogs held off a determined team of Chamois Lady Pirates in the night’s semi-final games.

Hermann defeated New Haven 45-38 while St. Clair edges Chamois 55-50.

Junior guard Allison Stiers led the Hermann attack with 17 points, one of seven players to break into the scoring column against the Lady Shamrocks.

The Championship game is set for 8 in the HHS gym.
