Milan Heard converted a three-point play with 45 seconds left to boost No. 2 Woodlawn to a 38-32 victory over Parkville in a Class 4A North regional girls basketball semifinal last night.

The Warriors (22-0), defending regional champions, will play host to No. 12 Western in a rematch of last year's 4A North final tomorrow at 3 p.m. The Doves had won six straight regional crowns before Woodlawn dethroned them last season in its first trip to the state final four in 12 years.

Heard rebounded a miss by Tiara Wildy from the corner and was fouled on the put-back. Her free throw gave the Warriors a 37-32 edge.

"In the fourth quarter, we went to man-to-man," said Warriors coach DeWayne Burroughs, "and the kids stepped it up on defense."
