Posted: Updated:
CHARLES CITY (KWWL) -

After dominating for three quarters, Aplington-Parkersburg had to hold off a furious rally as they topped Garner-Hayfield-Ventura 65-60 to advance to their first boys' state tournament since 2015.

The Falcons built up a 20-point lead after three quarters, but had to fight down the stretch. GHV cut the lead down to three twice in the final minutes before Aplington-Parkersburg managed to salt the game away at the free throw line.

Carter Cuvelier and Alec Oberhauser finished with 19 points apiece. Cuvelier topped the career 1,000 point mark during the first half.
