CAMBRIDGE — Mya Andrews poured in a career-high 23 points and the Marshall girls basketball team leveled Lodi, 62-35, in Thursday’s WIAA Division 3 sectional semifinal win played at Knoblauch Gymnasium in Cambridge.

The senior guard, who previously scored a career-best 16 points in a Feb. 2 win over then second-ranked Lake Mills, knocked down 10 shots from the floor and added a trio of free throws to lead Marshall to its fourth consecutive sectional championship game.

The top-seeded Cardinals (22-3) held just an eight-point halftime lead, but pulled away out-scoring the fourth-seeded Blue Devils 34-15 in the second half.

Sophomore Allie Rateike also scored a career-high with 15, while senior Anna Lutz added 14 points for the Cardinals.

Lauren Milne led the Blue Devils (7-10) with nine points.

The win sets up a showdown between Division 3 state powers as the Cardinals, ranked No. 5, face Lake Mills (22-2), ranked No. 4, for the right to advance to the 2021 WIAA Division 3 state tournament. The Cardinals defeated the L-Cats 61-58 on Feb. 2.

The sectional championship game will be played in Cambridge Saturday at 3 p.m.
