2-3 Zone ...

Just a modicum of defensive initiative out on the perimeter combined with a crew initiating the called for counts typically thwarts any stalling efforts on the part of one team. Unless the other team intentionally plays to get stalled on.
From the comments:

Oak ridge sat in a 2-3 zone for the entire first half. They are an unbelievable team that could have easily pressured them out of stall ball but didn't.

So evidently the better team here just stayed in a 2 - 3 zone and allowed the stall.
