Marathon, Merrill fall short in sectional final games

By  | 

Marathon and Merrill both hoped to find themselves on top in their sectional final matchups Saturday, but both teams fell just short.

Top seeded Merrill suffered an 81-55 loss to fellow top seed La Crosse Central.

It was a much closer game in Neillsville, where a last second blocked shot prevented Marathon from picking up a win over Lourdes Academy. They lost to the Knights 72-71.
