Sexton scored five points in a 10-0 Panther run to start the second half to give SMHS a 50-17 advantage, but a basket by Partridge sparked a 7-0 Jet run to slice the gap to 50-24.

Two free throws by Norman with 3:41 left in the third quarter keyed a 7-4 Panther spurt to raise the lead to 57-28 by quarter's end. SMHS was six of nine from the charity stripe.

Austin Helton opened the final quarter with a basket to give the Panthers a 59-28 lead, but the Jets converted some Panther turnovers into a 13-2 run to slice the lead to 61-41. Patridge had seven of the Jets' points.
