Staff report

Sindey sophomore Andre Gordon stepped in front of a pass and took it the other way for a basket with 4.4 seconds remaining to give the Yellow Jackets a stunning 69-67 upset win over Trotwood in Greater Western Ohio Conference boys basketball action Friday at Sidney.

The win put the Jackets at 10-0 in GWOC American North play and 13-3 overall heading into another conference game Tuesday night at Tipp City.

Sidney started well, leading 12-8 at one point in the first quarter. But the Rams scored the last six points of the period to lead 14-12 after one, then went on a 10-2 run to start the second quarter for a 24-14 lead.

The lead reached 13 at one point, but the Jackets cut the lead to 31-23 on a stickback by Ratez Roberts, and that’s how the half ended.

Sidney’s leading scorer, sophomore Andre Gordon, had just two points at the break. Roberts and Isaiah Bowser had eight apiece for the Jackets.

The Jackets came out and scored the first four points of the third quarter and it set the tone for much of the second half. A three-pointer late in the quarter by Jace Conrad cut the lead to 48-46, then four straight points to start the final period gave Sidney the lead.

With under a minute to go, Trotwood led 67-66, but Sidney’s Devan Rogers hit a free throw to tie the score.

Trotwood then worked for the final shot, but Gordon stepped in front of a pass and converted for the win.

Gordon went on to score 19 for the Jackets, 17 of those coming in the second half. Roberts finished with 18, 16 of those in the first three quarters, and Bowser added 10.

Trotwood (67) — Davis 21, Belyeu 11, Footer 15, Blanton 2, Anderson 4, Stephens 1, Patton 13.
