Ogemaw Heights' Robbie Kish (left) and Justin Wejsa tied up Pinconning's Andrew Holbrook on this play, but the Spartans kept the ball in his hands when it counted. Holbrook scored nine points in the fourth quarter, including four straight free throws in the final minute as the Spartans came from behind to edge the Falcons 48-42 and maintain their two-game lead atop the NEMC.

Adriane Swaffield and AuGres-Sims finished off Hale's North Star League title hopes Thursday with a come-from-behind 37-33 victory. The Wolverines and Eagles both trail league leader Posen by four games and second-place Arenac Eastern by two.
