ASHBURN — In a rematch of teams that split a pair of meetings in the regular season, Turner County put an end to another playoff run by the Portal Panthers Thursday night. The Rebels (25-4) used a 12-3 run late in the second quarter to break things open and the Panthers (25-5) couldn’t complete a second half comeback attempts as Turner County posted a 69-61 win in moving on to the Class A public school state semifinals. Quan Hillman and Nate Martin were instrumental in the Rebels’ win over the Panthers back in December.
