J-D boys lose twice at Prime Time Shootout

The Rams had an 18-15 lead when, starting in the second quarter, it limited Chittenango to 15 points over the next two periods combined. That gave J-D ample time to roar to a 53-30 lead and cruise through the homestretch.

Cavanaugh again led the scoring charge, finishing with 20 points as Coleman added 17 points. Drescher threw in nine points as Kinsey and Jordan Evans earned seven points apiece.

And the J-D girls team stayed in contention in the OHSL Freedom division, moving to 6-1 in league play last Tuesday night by going to Phoenix and beating the Firebirds 51-41.

That final score was a bit deceptive, as for three periods neither side could get away from each other. Trailing 20-18 at the break, J-D picked up the pace in the second half, yet didn't take the lead for good until the fourth quarter and made the key free throws late.

Of Cydney Goodrum's 14 points, eight came at the foul line. Lauren Beville chimed in 12 points, while Stephanie Mannion had seven points and Kayleigh Cavanaugh got six points. J-D's defense made sure that no Phoenix player scored in double figures.

Snow postponed the Rams' meeting with Chittenango last Friday, which leads to this Friday's pair of games against Cortland. The boys contest carries particular importance as J-D learns how it bounces back from its back-to-back defeats in Morgantown - and meets a tough foe in the Purple Tigers, who started 10-0 before falling to CBA last week.
