Ryan Dufault’s pull-up jumper from the baseline with 2.3 seconds left broke a tie and lifted Waseca (23-1) to a 51-49 victory over Caledonia in the Class 2A championship game.

Waseca led by six, 49-43, late in second half, but Caledonia rallied to tie the score on a short shot by Sam Privet with 1:37 left.

Waseca, which went into the game as the No. 1 team in Class 2A, survived a tough day of shooting, making just 30 percent of its shots from the floor.

But Dufault’s shot was true, giving him a team-high 23 points.

Caledonia’s Jackson Koepke heaved a last-second shot from near midcourt bounced off the rim and backboard at the buzzer.

Austin Klug led Caledonia (23-2) with 25 points.
