          KEOTA -- Sofia Iwobi scored a season-high 30 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in leading the Maharishi School girls' basketball team to a 62-54 victory over Keota in a Class 1A Region 6 first-round district game Monday in Keota.

          Iwobi single-handedly brought the Pioneers back from a halftime deficit by pumping in 24 of her points in the second half. Ami Freeberg added 12 points and Sheila Higgins 10 for the Pioneers (18-4), who will face Moravia for the district championship Saturday in Bussey at 7 p.m.

          Keota (6-15) got 18 points apiece from Kylie McArtor and Megan Frank.

          The Eagles were hot in the first quarter, scoring the first nine points of the game before the Pioneers rallied to make it 10-8. Keota, however, still held a 26-22 advantage at halftime.

          Iwobi began taking over in the third quarter, as the Pioneers grabbed a 28-27 with two minutes left for their first lead of the game.
