It was a clash of number one seeds last Friday night at Crosby-Ironton high school when the Browerville Tigers and the Barnum Bombers met in the Section 5A championship game.

Barnum, who boasted a 24-4 record overall, had come out of the Section 5A east side after topping Royalton on Tuesday 69-53.

In a game that had multiple lead changes, the Tigers needed a miraculous comeback in the final minute of the game to come out on top by a score of 75-74.

The first half saw the Tigers play very good defense and also take an early lead.
