Milaca made their way to Pine City for an important section matchup, which was also the regular season finale.
The Pine City girls much like they have all season jumped out to an early lead over Milaca. But the Wolves were answering almost every score Pine City made. It was a back and forth game throughout the 1st half. As halftime approached, the Dragons were able to create a plethora of turnovers and managed to grab a 39-28 lead at the half.
The Dragons started the 2nd half on a 6-0 run. Milaca was quick to make changes and turn things in their favor. The Wolves erased a double digit lead and sat within a couple points of taking over the lead. Both teams had their fair share of ups and downs. Madison Gothmann was a big upside for Milaca she took the game over and nearly hit every shot she took which electrified her teammates and kept her team in the game. For Pine City it was the rebounds that was their upside. They eliminated any chance for the Wolves to get 2nd chance opportunities and also helped their team grab some put backs. The Dragons never surrendered the lead and held on to a 67-59 lead.
Pine City finishes the season 20-6 and 5-2 in section play. They'll host Rush City on Thursday for the first round of the playoffs.
Milaca finished the season 14-12 and 6-8 in section play. They'll be the #8 seed and host Spectrum on Thursday.
