The Patriots trailed 40-32 following three quarters but battled back, outscoring the Raiders 23-10 in the fourth to win by five.
Dakota Dailey scored 30 points for MA, including 18 of 18 from the free-throw line. He was named the most valuable player for the game.
Cortez Love, an eighth grader, added 14 points for Marshall, including two key free throws with 15 seconds left.
As a team, Marshall Academy was 23 of 25 from the free-throw stripe.
