Hannah Dixon scored 34 points, including her 1,00th career point, to help the Lady Tide to a 57-53 MoValley League road win at West Branch that also secured enough wins for Curwensville to move into the District 9 Class 2A playoffs under a school rule that states a team must win 40 percent of its games in an open playoff system.

For Dixon, she entered the contest needing nine for 1,000 and reach the mark on a first-quarter 3-pointer, part of a 13-point quarter for the senior.
