Marko Stanojcic paced the Marines to a 72-69 overtime victory over the Lakewood Christian Panthers at Fremont.

The Marines came back from a 7 point deficit after Alex Thain exploded in the third quarter with 17 points while Bailey Merritt had 8, that 27 point quarter was the edge that Stanojcic needed to fuel the Marines to the first IHSAA sectional win in over 10 years.

Stanojcic ended the game with 28, Thain had 19, Merritt 18, Dustin Cool had 4, and Nick Johnson had 3.

This victory sets the table for a Hamilton v. Blackhawk Christian rematch in the Friday quarter finals.
