Ashley Morrissette stopped a comeback by Lewis Center Olentangy Orange with three late foul shots among her 20 points as Twinsburg continued toward a third straight girls Division I title with a 73-63 semifinal won on Friday.

The Tigers (29-0) carry a 43-game winning streak into the championship game Saturday at 8 p.m. against the Kettering Fairmont.

Orange (26-3) fell behind 60-40 with three minutes left in the third period before rallying to within 70-63 on a basket by Kierstynn Myers with 38 seconds to play. But Morrissette, the Associated Press' Ms. Basketball Ohio for 2013, iced the game from the foul line.

Brooke Thompson-Smith had 19 points, and Baleigh Reid 15 for the Tigers. Mya Walker led Orange with 20 and Taylor Agler added 19.
