The Rushford-Peterson boys survived a last second shot to win a Class 1A semifinal game Friday afternoon 53-51 against Maranatha Christian.   The Trojans led by two with 5.5 seconds left and Marantha Christian took the ball out just after halfcourt.   The Mustangs dribbled into the front court and took a three-pointer from the left wing that bounced off the rim just before the buzzer sounded.

Rushford-Peterson led by as many as fourteen points in the first half and led by ten at the half.   The Trojans had a chance to put the game away in the final minute but missed two front ends of one and one free throw attempts.   Maranatha Christian beat Rushford-Peterson in last year's semifinals.

Austin O'Hare led R-P with 14 points while Cole Kingsley had 13 points and 8 rebounds.   The Trojans improve to 31-1 and they will take on top ranked Belrose-Brooten-Elrosa in the state championship game on Saturday at noon at the Target Center.  The game can be heard on K Country 99.3 starting at 11:50.
