The Neillsville girls basketball season came to end on Thursday at St. Croix Falls as they fell to the Saints 47-41 in a Division 3 Sectional Semi-final.  

The game proved to be a defensive and physical one.  St. Croix Falls used both to take a 20-14 halftime lead.  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. 

The Warriors finish the season 20-2 while St. Croix Falls improves to 22-1 and will now face Aquinas in the Sectional Final on Saturday.
