There were three ties and seven lead changes in the second half before Marshfield scored 10 of the final 13 points in the game to sneak away with the six-point win.

Marshfield jumped out to a 17-6 lead behind two 3-pointers by Kummer and another by Michaelis.

Auburndale chipped away and Yahnke scored four points during a 6-0 run to end the first half as the Apaches cut Marshfield’s lead to 26-24 at halftime.

Auburndale grabbed its first lead early in the third quarter and the lead went back and forth the rest of the game.

Marshfield scored the final seven points of the third to take a 42-37 lead, but Auburndale again responded, eventually taking a 48-47 lead on a basket by Becky Willfahrt with 2:57 left in the game.

Natalie Zuelke and Fehrenbach scored to put the Tigers back on top. Two free throws by Willfahrt and another by Nicole Nikolay cut Marshfield’s lead to 52-51 with 44.8 seconds left, but Auburndale wouldn’t score again.

The Tigers scored the final five points and forced two turnovers in the final 38 seconds to clinch the win.

“Offensively, we played well,” Auburndale coach Liz Nagel said. “We had a few crucial mistakes near the end of the game, so hopefully, we’ll learn from it and it will help us down the road.
