Neillsville started to get some shots to fall in the second half and cut the Saints lead down to 2 with about a minute and half left, but St. Croix Falls made their free throws down the stretch and held on for the win.
Neillsville was led by senior Bella Opelt with a game high 20 points. Brianna McCurdy led St. Croix Falls with 17. St. Croix Falls made 12 of 17 freethrows, all in the second half. Neillsville only attempted 2 freethrows the entire game.
