The final minute of Monday’s Class 2A first-round game between Estherville Lincoln Central and Okoboji wasn’t that exciting. But that last second-oh boy.

Jacob Heinrichs heave at the buzzer swished through the basket to give the Midgets a 51-48 victory over the Pioneers.

ELC advances to the next round on Thursday, where they will travel to Hull to take on the top-ranked Western Christian Wolfpack.
