Lexington’s # 24 Marcus Cassassa started the scoring with a 2 point score. Jarrell quickly answered with 4 points before #42 Cameron Janda got an inbound pass for 2 more. Jarrell added 2 and, with 6 seconds left, Lexington’s #11 Jamyon Scott poppeda3pointerforLexington to take the lead at the end of the first 7-6.

The second period had both defenses stepping up. Jarrell stole the opening inbound, then went the distance to score a bucket plus 1 on the foul. Those 3 points were the only ones scored by Jarrell in the second period. Lexington, in the second, took the ball down the court and #11 Jamyon Scott was fouled and sent to the free throw line. He made both shots to even the score at 9-9.

The third period saw the tallest Jarrell player sneaking in behind the Lexington defenses three times in a row to run 6 points up on the board, then followed later with 2 free throws. Lexington’s Scott scored the only two buckets of the third period, both being 3 point pops, the last with 5 seconds on the clock. At the end of the third period, Jarrell led 17-15.

With a close game playing out, Jarrell took command of the game by running up 8 quick points, including two 3 pointers before Lexington’s Scott put in 2 more. Lexington’s #12 Corey Strain added a single free throw before Jarrell piled on 5 more points to end the scoring and end the game, Jarrell over Lexington 29-18.

Scoring for the JV Eagles were: 1 by #12 Corey Strain; 2 each by #24 Marcus Cassassa and #42 Cameron Janda; and high point scorer 13 points from #11 Jamyon Scott.
