Junior guard Mitch Guest scored 30 points, including two key free throws late, to lead No. 16 Glen Burnie past visiting Frederick, 63-60, in a Class 4A East boys basketball semifinal last night.

The Gophers (18-5) advanced to the regional final for the first time since 1993, said coach Mike Rudd, and will travel to Frederick tomorrow to play Thomas Johnson.

"Our kids really battled back when they could have folded," Rudd said. "It's a huge win for the program, and I'm unbelievably proud of the kids."

Behind Guest, who scored 30 or more points for the third straight game, the Gophers used a 24-4 third-quarter run to erase an 11-point Cadets advantage.

In the fourth quarter, Frederick cut its deficit to two, but Guest hit two free throws and Mike Newton connected on another in the final minute to preserve the victory.

Chris Crews led Frederick (18-7) with 18 points.

Thomas Johnson 76, Broadneck 51: Led by Thomas Richard's 18 points, the undefeated Patriots (23-0) scored the game's first 12 points and cruised to the regional semifinal win over the host Bruins, who were led by junior forward Jordan Sokel's 13 points.

Class 3A North

No. 6 Douglass 85, Dulaney 54: Leading by just five at halftime, the host Ducks (21-2) blew open the game against the Lions in the second half behind senior center Charles Brooks.

Brooks scored 14 of his 18 points in the second half for Douglass, which plays host to Randallstown - an easy winner over Fallston yesterday - tomorrow in the regional final.

Class 2A North

Southern-Baltimore 61, Hereford 44: Junior Jerrell Green had 23 points, and the Bulldogs were 18 of 21 from the foul line in the fourth quarter to put away the host Bulls (11-12) in the semifinal.

Southern (12-8), which also got 20 points from Reginald Holmes, will play Lansdowne tomorrow.

The Bulls, paced by 19 points from sophomore Matt Jones, cut an eight-point halftime deficit to 33-30 late in the third quarter. But free-throw shooting - the Bulldogs were 25-for-33 from the line - was the difference.

Lansdowne 62, Eastern Tech 59: The Vikings (16-7) weathered a 36-point performance from Mavericks senior Josh McKay, who missed a last-second three-pointer that would have forced a third overtime.

John Jarboe, who finished with 21 points for Lansdowne, drained a three-pointer with three seconds left in the first overtime to force a second.

Class 1A North

Perryville 53, Chesapeake-BC 52: The visiting Panthers overcame an 11-point halftime deficit and survived a last-second attempt by Chesapeake senior point guard Brandon Holifield to move on to the regional final.

Aaron Rouselle (game-high 20 points) hit a layup with 54 seconds left to put the Panthers ahead by a point.

The Bayhawks (8-14), who won the 1A North last season, had multiple opportunities to regain the lead but couldn't convert.

Havre de Grace 72, Sparrows Point 44: Richard Simpson led all scorers with 22 points as the host Warriors (16-6) outscored the Pointers 25-7 in the third quarter to pull away. Havre de Grace will play at Perryville tomorrow in the regional final.

Class 1A South

No. 2 Dunbar 86, Oakland Mills 36: The visiting Poets (23-2) built a 41-17 halftime advantage by halftime en route to a lopsided victory over the Scorpions (6-15). Dunbar guard Maurice Barksdale scored 21 points.
