Tabb and Grafton battled back and forth before the Tigers eventually won a 2-1 road decision Friday.

After a scoreless first half, Tabb’s Allen Blair broke away from the defense in the second half and slotted the ball past the Grafton keeper for the game’s opening goal.

Blair’s goal was followed by a Nate Jacobson goal, which was assisted by Cody Kilbourn to put Tabb up 2-0.

With less than a minute left in regulation, Grafton’s Andy King found the back of the net by heading in a corner kick through a sea of bodies.

Tabb (6-6-2) and Grafton (8-2-4) will now each await their opponents in the Conference 19 tournament.
