The Jets (2-4) play again on Tuesday when they host Lehman Catholic.

Jackson Center 34, Riverside 31

The Tigers lost an early lead but fought back in the fourth quarter to reclaim it and earn a nonconference win on Tuesday in Jackson Center.

Jackson Center took a 14-9 lead by the end of the first quarter and led 20-15 at halftime. The Pirates used an 11-6 scoring advantage in the third to tie it 26-26, but the Tigers rallied late and used an 8-5 scoring edge in the fourth to earn the win.

Regan Clark led Jackson Center with 14 points while Kylie Hartle scored seven.

Lauryn Sanford led Riverside with 13 points while Jade Copas and Amber Waters each scored six. Waters led the team with eight rebounds.

Riverside shot 10 for 38 (26.3 percent) from the field and outrebounded the Tigers 23-17.

“Jackson Center beat us because they simply outworked us and outcoached us,” Riverside coach Bryce Hodge said. “I have to do a better job getting us ready to play. We are a totally different team from practice to games. I’ve got to get that fixed. We gave up too many offensive rebounds, we lacked effort defensively and struggled shooting the ball once again. Credit to JC for playing with great effort and finishing the game.”

Jackson Center (2-3) will host Fort Loramie on Saturday in SCAL action. Riverside (3-2) will host Lehman Catholic on Thursday in a Northwest Central Conference game.
