NEW Lutheran put on a furious finish to their Division 5 state semifinal game at the Kohl Center Thursday afternoon but the rally came up short in a 56-49 loss to small school powerhouse Randolph. The same teams met in last year's Division 4 title game, won by the Rockets 58-40. Once again, NEW Lutheran fell behind early.

The Blazers finish the year at 22-5 Randolph will play for it's 9th state championship meeting Clayton in the Division 5 final Saturday. Clayton defeated Wauzeka-Stueben 48-37. In the Division 4 semifinals, two unbeaten teams were denied a trip the the title game. Top ranked Blair-Taylor was upset by Grantsburg 54-49 in overtime and Marathon got 31 points from Cody Henke in knocking off Oostburg 68-50.
