It was a grind.
For both teams.
In the end, the edge went to Nova Scotia’s Windsor Edge, downing Saint John’s Port City Fog, 83-74 in Maritime Women’s Basketball Association quarter-final play Friday.
Windsor, entering play as the Nova Scotia No. 3 seed, will now face regular season champion Halifax Thunder in semifinal play Saturday.
Game time is 5 p.m. at Saint Mary’s University.
Regular season scoring champion Karissa Kajorinne had 19 points to spark Windsor in the see-saw tilt that saw the Edge pull away late over the New Brunswick No. 2 seed.

Rachel Farwell scored 13 for Port City. Kaylee Kilpatrick needed 12 and Reese Baxendale 11.
