The Junction City Blue Jays outscored Highland Park 26-19 in the fourth quarter enroute to a 71-62 victory over the Scots at the Shenk Gym. It was the third win in a row for the Blue Jays ( 6-8 ). Highland Park fell to 6-7.
Junction City led by two points entering the fourth quarter but managed to hit a number of clutch free throws down the stretch to hold off Highland Park.
Blue Jay coach Nick Perez called it a huge win for the team. “In the locker room we get a little crazy. You can tell the kids played with emotion tonight. Defensively I didn’t like what we did but I was excited to get the ‘W’ tonight. Kody and A.J. go hit free throws, Ty hit some free throws, Devante hit some free throws. That’s a plus in my book.”
Junction City will host Hayden on Tuesday night.
