Norwalk was simply too strong for Sandusky, topping the Blue Streaks 79-41 on Tuesday night in Division I sectional semifinal action at Galion High School.
The Truckers, now 23-0, play Marion Harding (11-11) at 6:15 p.m. Friday in a sectional title game back at Galion.
Sandusky finished its season at 3-20.
Norwalk coach Steve Gray was pleased with the effort and liked the fact that everyone got to play.
“Our goal tonight was to play on this floor,” Gray said. “We could get more out of tonight by playing rather than practicing. The kids like to compete against someone else and they were happy about playing.”
