The next day Pulaski hosted FRCC rivals Notre Dame for the Regional Championship where Pulaski won 56-39.

Senior guard Narges led the way for the Raiders scoring 14 points, Egnarski was right behind with 13 and Hendricks added 10. 

On March 8, the Pulaski Raiders played their final game of the season as Kaukauna defeated Pulaski, 68-59 at Green Bay Preble High School. 

In this sectional semifinal game, the Raiders struggled with fouls and turnovers which would lead them to lose control of the game.

Later in the game the Raiders managed to tie it up but with starting guards Narges and Stiede fouled out, the Ghosts were too much to handle. Kaukauna finished the game with a 13-4 run. Lukasik led Pulaski with 16 points, Stiede added 14 and Hendricks scored 13.
