The fat lady was warming up her voice late in the fourth quarter as Park Rapids held on to a tenuous 6-0 lead with under two minutes on the clock.

"We ended up with a couple breaks and had to overcome some adversity," Head Coach Mike Jordahl said. "We've talked all season long about game experience."
