Jarrell won the first three quarters by decisive margins as they pulled away from the outmanned Eagles.

With the bench a little longer than usual with ten players, Lexington played hard in trying to corral the ranked Cougars. Lexington played hard on defense, not getting into foul trouble as in the last few games.

For the fourth game in a row, freshman Eriq Mitchell led the Eagles in scoring with 13 points. The other scorers were in single digits.

Note: Freshman Cameron Janda tossed in a free throw for his first varsity points. He and teammate Corey Strain were on the varsity because there was not a JV game.
