Windom 22-36-06 = 64
Minneota 24-34-11 = 69

Windom rallied in improbable fashion to force overtime Saturday but couldn't sustain the momentum in overtime, falling 69-64 at Minneota in the first round of the Section 3AA Tournament.

Windom trailed by two at halftime and was down by as many as seven in the second half, but caught fire from three-point range late in the contest, pulling to within three points.

The Eagles' last chance to potentially tie the game seemed halted when Minneota knocked the ball out of bounds with just 0.6 seconds left on the clock. But on the ensuing inbounds play, junior Wyatt Minion quickly released a 25-foot prayer at the horn that found nothing but net, sending the game to overtime tied 58-58.

But in the overtime, the Eagle offense went cold on its first four possessions while Minneota was able to convert in the lane, taking a quick six-point lead. The Vikings then sealed the game from the free throw line, hitting five-of-six from the stripe in the final minute of overtime. The Vikings went 15-of-21 from the line for the game, compared to 7-of-7 for the Eagles.

Minion and Luke Gilbertson each scored 16 points in the loss for the Eagles. Zach Wormstadt added 14 points and Eric Pfeffer added 11 off the bench.

Edgerton 13-28 = 41
RRC 43-26 = 69

Red Rock Central used a dominant first half performance to take a comfortable lead and cruise to a 69-41 win over Edgerton in Saturday's first round of the Section 3A Tournament at Worthington.

The Falcons shot just under 50 percent from the field in the first half, but went 6-of-12 from three-point range in the half to take command of the game with a 43-13 halftime advantage.

In the second half, the Falcon offense cooled but the defense was strong. RRC forced 18 Edgerton turnovers in the contest.

Luke Engen and Taylor Bunting each scored 18 points in the win for the Falcons. Engen added 14 rebounds. Trevor Pederson added 14 points in the win.

HBC 25-49 = 74
WWG 41-43 = 84

Westbrook-Walnut Grove saw a 22-point lead evaporate in the second half and needed to hang on late, but the Chargers advanced in the Section 3A Tournament with an 84-74 win over Hills-Beaver Creek Saturday in Worthington.

WWG used a strong offensive performance in the first half and early in the second half to stake itself to a 22-point cushion. But fouls mounted on the Chargers in the second half, which allowed HBC to battle back.

Despite missing nine consecutive free throws after cutting the deficit to single-digits, the Patriots were able to pull within six points with the ball in the final minute. But key free throws down the stretch from Nathan Ross and Tyson Elzenga helped the Chargers seal the victory.

Elzenga led WWG with 19 points. Matt Deprez added 17 points and Anthony Ross added 16 in the win.
