Tuesday was a kind of reverse déjà vu.

Last season, Holmes County topped Port St. Joe for the District 2-1A girls’ basketball title, sending the Lady Tiger Sharks on the road for region play.

The Region 1-1A title game was played at Holmes County but won by Port St. Joe to advance to the Class 1A Final Four.

This season, Port St. Joe beat Holmes County in the district title game, sending Holmes County on the road for region play.

And that path arrived at “The Dome” Tuesday night, where visiting Holmes County beat Port St. Joe 62-51 for a ticket to Lakeland and the Class 1A semifinals.

Last year, Port St. Joe beat Holmes County by 10 in the region final; the margin was 11 in favor of Holmes County this year.

The Lady Tigers Sharks finish the season 22-7, their third-straight 20-win season.

Port St. Joe fell behind early as Holmes County carved out a 13-point lead in a first period that ended 19-6.

The Lady Tiger Sharks could never quite dig out of that hole.

The lead was still 13 at halftime and Port St. Joe began to inch closer in the second half, closing to 46-41 early in the fourth period.

But Holmes County pushed the lead over the final minutes, outscoring the Lady Tiger Sharks 16-10 to clinch a matchup with Wildwood in next week’s state semifinals.
