Madison junior center David Randall, who had scored 17 points in six previous games, scored 13 last night as the Warhawks upset previously unbeaten Lee, 70-60, in a semifinal game of the Hayfield Invitational tournament.

Craig Saunders scored a game-high 23 points and made eight free throws in the final 36 seconds to seal the victory for Madison (6-1), which meets unbeaten Paint Branch in tonight's championship game at 9.

Keith Johnson scored 27 points as the Panthers (7-0) overcame an 18-point first-half deficit to defeat Hayfield, 73-63, in last night's other semifinal.

The 6-foot-6 Randall, who had 10 rebounds, scored seven points in the fourth quarter. His layup with 2:09 remaining gave Madison the lead for keeps, 56-54. He made two free throws with 1:34 to go to increase the margin to 58-54.

Madison, which has scored fewer than 70 points only once this season, made 14 of 17 free throws in the fourth period.

Lee (7-1), which was led by Bill Courtney's 22 points, had shooting problems from the field and at the free throw line down the stretch.

The Lancers made only four of 14 shots from the field in the fourth quarter and were four of seven from the line.

Senior forward Jeff Jividen, who came into the game averaging 20 points per game, was held to eight, just two in the second half.

In the opener, Johnson, a 6-foot-1 senior guard who averaged two minutes of playing time last year, made six of nine three-point shots to lead Paint Branch's comeback.

Johnson, who came into the game averaging 16.2 points, made five free throws in the final 1:19, helping the Panthers maintain the lead they took for good, 58-57, on Percy Moore's free throw with 3:22 to go.

Paint Branch did not score for almost a 6:43 span covering the end of the first period and most of the second. Hayfield (3-5) scored 22 straight points in that time and led, 39-23, at the half.

"In all my years of coaching, we probably came back to win after being down by that much, but if it ever happened, I can't remember when," said Paint Branch Coach Hank Galotta, who did not call a timeout during the lapse. "There was a lot of pushing and it was very rough inside, which our kids weren't used to. But at halftime, I told them to get more aggressive."

In the first half, Paint Branch grabbed nine rebounds. In the second half, the Panthers had 24, including 11 off the offensive board.

"I think we were a little nervous in the first half," said Johnson. "Everyone was really quiet walking to the locker room at halftime, but I think {the Hawks} got a little overconfident because of the way they had been playing in the first half."

Paint Branch center Charles Chase, who came into the game averaging 19.8 points and 20 rebounds, had six points and 11 rebounds. Forward Sedrick Robinson (19 points, seven rebounds) made up for the absence of starting forward Shawn Briggs, who missed the game because to a family commitment.

Guard Rod Thorne's 18 points led Hayfield, which made only nine of 34 second-half shots (27 percent). Kevin Woody had 15 points and 12 rebounds.
