Cards foiled by Marshall


MARSHALL -- The Marshall Tigers outplayed Willmar down the stretch and won an important meeting of Section 2AAA rivals 78-74 on Monday night.

It was a close, entertaining game all the way with both teams hot from long distance -- combining for 21 three-pointers.

Willmar led late 67-60 before their offensive engine seized up. Inside shots and lay-ups failed to fall and neither would some needed free throws.
