MARIST CATHOLIC 30, MARSHFIELD 28: The Pirates nearly handed the Spartans their first Sky-Em League loss, but weren’t able to connect on a potential go-ahead shot in the final seconds at Eugene.

“We played really good defense and took care of the ball,” Marshfield coach Bruce Bryant said. “The difference was free throws. If we make a few more than five of 14, we win the game.”
