SIDNEY — Sidney earned its third victory in five days by beating Troy 48-28 in a Miami Valley League game on Friday.

Like in their 55-27 win over Xenia on Tuesday, the Yellow Jackets pulled away in the fourth quarter. Troy pulled within 25-22 late in the third quarter, but Sidney scored the last six points of the quarter to take a nine-point lead into the fourth and then finished with a 17-6 scoring edge in the final quarter.

Allie Stockton led Sidney with 20 points. She was held scoreless in the third after scoring 13 points in the first half but added seven in the fourth.

Lexee Brewer added 13 points, including six in the fourth quarter. Kiara Hudgins scored six points (all in the second half) and Samantha Reynolds scored five points.

The Trojans built an early 5-1 lead but Sidney scored the next five points. Troy’s Macie Taylor hit a 3 to give the squad an 8-6 lead, but the Yellow Jackets scored the last five points of the second to take an 11-8 lead. Sidney used a 12-6 scoring advantage in the second to push its lead to 23-12 by halftime.

Sidney (5-2, 4-2 MVL Valley) was scheduled to host Fairborn on Monday, but the game has been postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak on the Skyhawks’ team. The Yellow Jackets are scheduled to host West Carrollton (5-3, 5-3) in a key MVL Valley matchup on Wednesday.
