Polson 60, Eureka 56
 
At Polson, the host Pirates played the part of gracious hosts - swashbuckler style - by attempting to keep the visiting 7B Lion shooters in the freezer much like the frigid polar sub-zero temperatures outside of the gym where the game was being played.  Polson jumped out to an early lead that bordered upon double digits before  Eureka started to warm up on the court.  The Pirates would take a half dozen point lead into the locker room at intermission, expanding that to a decade’s worth at the third quarter mark, extending that a smidge further in the early going of the final period.  But rather than being incapacitated by the thorns that the Pirates were lancing into their paws like would be expected from fairy tale Lions like the one associated with the fable about Androcles, Eureka showed that their claws were still sharp and that they packed just enough volume in their roar to make Katy Perry proud.   The visitors would trim the Polson lead down to five 55-50, then pared it further to three 57-54 off a deuce by RJ Glover with a minute and a half remaining in the game.  The Pirates had an opportunity to extend their lead at the free throw line, but failed to convert their opportunity.  The Lions were more than willing to oblige by cutting the lead to one 57-56 off a Dalton Smith deuce.  The Pirates countered with a deuce of their own 59-56, to which Eureka responded by twice attempting to tie the game off a pair of triple attempts launched by the Bohne brothers.  Polson was able to gather in the rebound of the final attempt with Andrew Weltz being fouled underneath at the Polson end of the court in his attempt to net some breathing room.  He would split a pair of free throws to finish the scoring that would give the Pirates a four point victory.  Dalton Smith of Eureka led all scorers with 21 points, with Austin Perez chipping in one shy of a dozen.  Polson would place a trio of Pirates in double figures with freshman Matt Rensvold netting 16, followed by Cedrick Smith with a dozen and Andrew Weltz turning in a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds.
