Marshfield would fight back into the game as time ticked away. They managed to get the game within one point in the last minute on another three-pointer by Miller.
They then fouled Rhinelander to make sure they got a possession yet. The Hodags made both free throws to take a three point lead.

Down 64-61, the Tigers had the last possession, but were unable to capitalize on a final shot.
