Pleasant Grove 72 – Fremont 55

Fremont held a 13-11 advantage after the first quarter before Pleasant Grove answered with a 19-12 second quarter to lead by five at halftime. The Vikings outscored the Silverwolves 42-30 in the second half to take over the game and clinch a spot in the state championship.
