Lady Jets hold off Lady Dragons 47-42

CROSSVILLE — The Cumberland County High School basketball teams made a short trip to Jamestown Tuesday for a pair of games with York Institute and came home with a split, as the Lady Jets defeated the Lady Dragons 47-42 and the Jets suffered a heart-breaking 59-56 loss to the Dragons.

CCHS 47, York 42: The Lady Jets took a 14-8 first-quarter lead thanks to nine points by Alli Hyder and a trey by Rebekah Teeple. CCHS was four of 11 from the field with three turnovers, but held the Lady Dragons to three of 10 from the field with five turnovers.

Katelyn Butler converted the first of two free throws with 7:16 left to slice the Lady Jet lead to 14-9, but a Hyder layup triggered a 13-6 run to finish the half with a 27-15 lead. CCHS was five of eight from the field with seven turnovers, while holding York to two of 11 from the floor with five miscues. Kassidy Sommer had two treys for CCHS.

The Lady Jets swelled their advantage to 37-19 on a Gina Dick layup, but two York buckets sliced the deficit to 37-23. Makenzie Iles buried a trey at end of the quarter made the score 40-23.

CCHS was four of 10 from the field with six turnovers, while York was four of 10 with two turnovers.

Ashley Wright could do no wrong in the fourth quarter for York, scoring 12 points to help slice the Lady Jets' lead to 43-40 with under two minutes left in the contest. The Lady Jets, who were 37 of 47 from the free throw at SMHS last Saturday, converted three of 10 free throws in the final 1:07 to secure the victory, as they were  one of six from the field with six turnovers in the final eight minutes.

York was eight of 13 from the field and two of three from the charity stripe.

Leading the Lady Jets were Iles (four points, one rebound, one assist), Dick (12 points, eight rebounds, two assists, four steals), Hyder (18 points, two rebounds, one assist, two steals), Skylar VanWinkle (one assist), Teeple (seven points, 15 rebounds, three steals), Sommer (six points, six rebounds, one assist) and Courtney Smith (two rebounds).

CCHS was 14 of 35 from the floor and 11 of 23 from the charity stripe with 19 turnovers, while York was 17 of 45 from the field and seven of 11 from the charity stripe with 13 turnovers.

York 59, CCHS 56: Dylan Qualls missed a game-tying three-point basket with seconds remaining, as the Jets suffered their fourth sraight loss to fall to 12-13 on the season.

The Dragons took a 13-10 after the quarter, in which there was one tie and eight lead changes. CCHS, who hadn't shot well in their previous three losses, were four of 15 in the first quarter with five turnovers, while York was five of 11 with five turnovers.

Cameron O'Rourke had four points for the Jets, while Diego Poore and Logan Parsons each buried a trey. Corbin Patton had six points for the Dragons.

The Jets opened the second quarter with a 7-0 run to take a 17-13 and stretched the advantage to 27-21; however, the Dragons finished the quarter with a 14-6 run for 35-33 lead at break.

CCHS was nine of 16 from the field with two turnovers, while the Dragons burned the Jets for a 10 of 13 from the floor with eight turnovers. Parsons had seven points for the Jets.

The Jets took a 43-41 lead on a Parsons' jumper with under three minutes left in the third quarter, but York took a 46-44 lead by quarter's end. Again, the Jets couldn't buy a bucket, hitting three of 16 from the floor  with four turnovers, while York remained hot, hitting five of nine with eight turnovers.

York stretched the lead to 53-44 with under four minutes left in the game, but Tayler Houston converted two three throws with 3:29 left to start a 12-3 run to tie the game at 56-56. A layup by Dylan Qualls tied the game at that mark.

Gaven Williams converted the second of two free throws with 9.2 seconds left for a 59-56 lead. As the Jets were in their offense, a little boy ran on the floor stopping play with 6.7 seconds. York used the official time to call a time out.

CCHS worked the offense, with Qualls taking the shot for the tie, but came up short.

The Jets were 19 of 64 from the field and 12 of 15 from the charity stripe with 12 turnovers, while York was 25 of 42 from the field and six of 15 from the free throw line with 24 turnovers.

Leading the Jets were Diego Poore (seven points, two rebounds, four assists, two steals), Qualls (12 points, two rebounds, one assist, four steals), J.J. Miller (two points, nine rebounds, four assists, six steals), Austin Brown (one rebound), Alex Dixon, Houston (15 points, one rebound, one steal), Cade Smith (one rebound, one steal), Parsons (15 points, five rebounds, one assist, four steals) and O'Rourke (five points, four rebounds, two steals).

Schedule: CCHS will travel to Cookeville tonight, weather permitting, and will host Coffee County Tuesday in crucial District 6AAA contests.

The Jets are tied for third in the district with Warren County at 2-2, behind Cookeville (3-1) and White County (3-1) and ahead of Coffee County (0-4), while the Lady Jets (0-4) trail Cookeville (4-0), Coffee County (3-1), White County (2-2) and Warren County (1-3).
