The Oak Harbor Rockets' magical season came to an end when they lost, 53-42, to North Union in the Division III regional semifinals. In a back-and-forth game that featured two ties and eight lead changes, Oak Harbor held a 32-31 lead after Maddy Rathbun scored inside off a pass from Emma Bergman with 2:04remaining in the third quarter, but the Wildcats, who sport a 26-1 record a No. 4 ranking, closed out the quarter on a 6-2 run to take a 37-34 lead heading into the fourth and slowly pulled away in the final quarter.
