Friday night, Garrett and Woodlan met in the first Sectional #21 Semi-Final game at Fort Wayne's Concordia Lutheran High School. The two had previously met very early in the year on November 7, with Garrett winning 37-25. This most recent matchup had the makings of a similar outcome, as Garrett ran out to a 13-3 first quarter lead. Woodlan fought back, though, putting together a 13-2 run behind their extended and aggressive zone defense to take the lead late in the second stanza, 16-15, before Garrett reclaimed it at 19-16 just before halftime.

The second half was nip and tuck throughout, with Garrett often taking a four or five-point lead, then Woodlan answering and cutting it to two or three points. Heading into the final period, Garrett clung to a 32-29 advantage, but Woodlan kept fighting. When the Railroaders extended their lead to 41-34 with around three minutes to go, it looked like the game was starting to get out of control, but then a steal and a Dakotah Krohn (2022) layup, an and-1 opportunity by Evah Smith (2023), and another steal by Krohn with a layup at the end, and Woodlan put together a 10-2 run to take a 44-43
