CCHS, Kingston split non-district games Friday

CROSSVILLE — The CCHS basketball teams celebrated homecoming Friday night against Kingston, with the two teams splitting a pair of non-district games, as the Lady Jets won 62-52, but the Jets were defeated 52-47 by the Jackets, after the Jets junior varsity won their contests 62-51.

Lady Jets 62, Kingston 51: Makenzie Iles tallied 22 points, with three rebounds, one assist and three steals to spark the Lady Jets, while Gina Dick added 16 points, eight boards, six assists and four steals, and Rebekeh Teeple chipped in 10 points, 10 rebounds and three steals.

Rounding out the statistical categories for the Lady Jets were Alli Hyder (seven points, four rebounds, five assists, one steal), Sloane VanWinkle (one rebound, one steal), Skylar VanWinkle, Kelzie Eldridge (one steal), Kassidy Sommer (nine points, four rebounds, three assists and one steal) and Courtney Smith.

Three players were in double figures for Kingston — Kalli Simpson (15 points), Sydney Nunley (12 points) and Taylor Thurman (10 markers).

The Lady Jets jumped out to a 13-5 lead with under 3:30 left in the first quarter, but Kingston finished the quarter with a 9-2 spurt to slice the lead to 15-14.

CCHS was six of 17 from the field with two turnovers, while Kingston was six of 17 with five turnovers.

Hyder scored five points in a 7-0 Lady Jet spurt to open the second quarter to extend the lead to 22-14; however, Kingston would outscore CCHS 10-8 in the final six minutes to slice the lead to 30-24. The Lady Jets led 10 points late in the half.

Kingston was six of nine from the field, while CCHS was five of 14.

Iles scored seven third-quarter points to stake the Lady Jets to a 46-33 advantage with 2:10 left in the stanza, but Kingston finished the quarter with a 7-3 run to make the score 46-40.

CCHS converted nine of 18 free throws in the final quarter to outscore Kingston 16-12 to take the victory. Iles was three for four from the charity stripe, and Gina Dick was five for eight.

Kingston 52, CCHS 47: The Yellow Jackets outscored the Jets 17-2 in the fourth quarter to rally from a 10-point third-quarter deficit to take the victory.

The Jets led 7-6 on a Dylan Qualls bucket, but Kingston regained a 11-9 advantage, before senior Tayler Houston buried two treys at the end of the quarter for a 15-11 lead.

CCHS was six of 16 from the floor with one turnover, while Kingston was four of 10 with three turnovers.

The Jets stretched the lead to 19-13 with 3:10 left in the half, before Quint Gasque's two buckets narrowed the gap to 19-17. A layup by Qualls triggered a 10-3 run to give the Jets a 29-20 lead at the break.

CCHS finished the half, hitting 11 of 29 from the field and three of four from the charity stripe, while Kingston was eight of 23 from the floor and one of two from the charity stripe. Both of those statistical categories would figure in the outcome of the contest.

CCHS stretched the lead to 33-21 early in the third quarter, but the Yellow Jackets reeled off eight unanswered points to slice the lead to 33-29; however, Cameron O'Rourke's putback basket with 3:47 left keyed a 12-6 run to swell the lead to 45-35.

Kingston took advantage of CCHS miscues and one of nine shooting to outscore the Jets 17-2 in the final quarter. Qualls recorded the Jets' only basket with 2:29 left in the game to give the Jets their last lead at 47-45.

The visitors finished the quarter with a 7-0 run, despite converting just two of 10 free throws. CCHS didn't go the foul line in the final quarter.

CCHS was 17 of 57 from the floor and nine of 10 from the charity stripe, while Kingston was 12 of 52 from the floor and four of 14 from the free throw line.
