Sophomore Jordanna Midthun made a free throw with 2.5 seconds left to give DeForest a 43-42 win over La Crosse Central in the Division Two semifinals of the WIAA State Girls Basketball tournament at the Resch Center Friday afternoon.

With the score tied at 42, Midthun was fouled on a shot in the lane in the final seconds. She missed the first free throw, but after a timeout, made the second to give the Norskies the lead.

Kayla Goth led DeForest with 20 points and eight rebounds.

DeForest (26-1) will face Notre Dame (26-1) in the Division Two championship game Saturday at 6:35 pm.

Notre Dame defeated Pius XI in the other semifinal 50-47.
