The Hornets, the No. 2 seed, will play top-seed Peoria Christian at 7:30 tonight in Wyoming. Senior forward Shelby Kuferschmid hit two big jump shots in the second half, including one at the end of the third quarter that put Eureka up by four points.

DIRECTIONS

The Regional is in Wyoming, not Toluca. To get there, go straight up Route 40 North (Knoxville Ave. out of Peoria), which turns into Riute 17 West. Once in Wyoming, turn eft at the sign that says "Stark County Athletic Complex." The gym is a block ahead on the left.
