(ABC 6 NEWS) -- The march to 31 wins continues.

Tom Aase scored 16 points while Zach Wessels had a game-high 20 to lead the Austin Packers (30-0) to a 68-65 overtime win against Marshall in the Class 3A semifinals Thursday.

Neither team held a lead of more than six in what was a very back-and-forth game.

Austin never trailed in overtime, after Marshall's Tanner Bukowski tied it with 37 seconds left in regulation.

The Packers' Ajuda Nywesh was a perfect six-for-six from the free throw line in the extra session, and ended up with 12 points and six rebounds.

Saturday's Class 3A championship - number two Austin versus number one De La Salle - features a match-up of teams with just one loss between them.
