The Flyers led 8-5 at the end of the first quarter and 13-11 at halftime. Jackson Center used a 10-8 scoring advantage in the third to tie it and both squads scored seven points in the fourth to send it to overtime with a 28-28 score.

Anna 86, Miami East 43
The Rockets had no problems against Miami East in a nonconference game on Monday in Anna.
Anna took a 28-8 lead by the end of the first quarter and led 47-16 at halftime.
Griffin Doseck led Anna with 20 points. Carter Elliott added 14 points while Riley Huelskamp and Bart Bixler each scored 10. Five other players scored for the Rockets.
Mechanicsburg 63, Riverside 32
A surging Mechanicsburg beat Riverside 63-32 in a nonconference game on Monday.
The Indians, which have won five of their last six, took a 20-6 lead by the end of the first quarter and led 34-22 at halftime. They closed out the win with an 11-8 scoring advantage in the third quarter and an 18-2 scoring advantage in the fourth.
The Pirates shot 11 for 28 (39.3 percent) from the field and committed 35 turnovers.
“Mechanicsburg is a really good team, there’s a reason they earned the No. 4 seed in our sectional,” Riverside coach Bryce Hodge said. “Their aggressive physical defense gave us trouble all night. …It’s hard to win games against any team when turning it over that much, let alone a really good team like Mechanicsburg.
“The frustrating part is we’d cut the lead to single digits in the second half, and then we’d turn it over in consecutive possessions and be down 15. We have a lot of room for improvement. The most encouraging part of the night was when we took care of the ball, we played and competed with a really good team.”
Dana Jones led Riverside with eight points while Lauryn Sanford, Kirstin Schlumbohm and Courtnie Smith each scored six.
Sidney splits senior night match with Greenville
Sidney’s bowling teams hosted Greater Western Ohio Conference American North Division rival Greenville for senior night on Monday at Bel-Mar Lanes. It was both squads’ final regular season match.
Sidney’s boys team defeated Greenville 2,280-1,871 to improve to 13-5 overall and 10-5 in conference play.
Calib Nolen had a 362 series, Harrison Fisher had a 207 game and Kaden Abbott and Jaxon Rickey rolled one a 203 game.
“We had a fairly good night,” Sidney coach Trent Knoop said. “Calib got to bowl a full match tonight, which is the first time he has gotten to on varsity. Thought he rolled the ball well. As a whole, we didn’t execute our shot making the greatest. We had quite a few splits in there, but we did a decent job on picking up our spares. We are ready to compete this weekend at GWOC.”
The girls lost to Greenville 1,717-1,631 to fall to 4-14 and 3-12. Camryn Smith had a 332 series, Emma Hurley had a 319 series and Cassie Trudea had a 223 series.
“I thought we had a solid night,” Knoop said. “A few more spares we would have been right in the match. But, at least we are consistently in the 1600s now. That’s much better than being in the 1500s from the start of the season. That alone shows promise that the girls do have.”
