Notre Dame shut down underdog Northview today in the Division I girls district basketball final at Perrysburg.

Bolstered by 10-for-14 shooting over the first eight minutes, the Eagles promptly dropped a game-breaking 23-4 surge on Northview, then cruised to a 55-32 victory to advance to their second straight regional.

“We did a very good job of execution in almost every possession of the first quarter, at both ends of the floor,” Eagles coach Travis Galloway said. “We did a good job of finding [Northview’s Kendall] McCoy defensively, and we did a great job of rebounding the first miss.

Notre Dame (23-3) — repeat champion of the Three Rivers Athletic Conference, and a 2012 state semifinalist — will have a rematch with eighth-ranked Northern Lakes League champion Perrysburg (23-1) in a regional semifinal Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Central Catholic’s Sullivan Center.

The Eagles beat Perrysburg 44-28 in last year’s regional semifinal at Central and also edged the visiting Yellow Jackets 40-38 on Jan. 26 of this season, Perrysburg’s only two losses in its last 25 games.
