The Los Lunas Tigers mounted a fourth-quarter comeback at Grants on Friday.

The attempt came up a little short.

The LLHS boys basketball team fell to the host Pirates, 53-47, in the District 6-4A semifinals. The Tigers cut into a 10-point deficit, twice pulling within four points, but could get no closer.

Grants advanced to play in the 6-4A championship game for the second straight year. They’ll play at Gallup High on Saturday at 7 p.m.

Also at Grants on Friday, the Gallup Lady Bengals won the girls 6-4A tourney championship, coming from behind to beat host Grants, 52-50.

Seeding committee meetings will be held Sunday morning in Albuqeurque to arrange qualifiers for the state tournaments. A selection show will be broadcast on nmaafilms.tv at noon.
