NORTH JACKSON, OH – The 2019-2020 regular season is officially over for the Lisbon Blue Devils as they traveled up to Jackson Milton to take on the Bluejays. The Blue Devils and the Bluejays both were looking for a win to build some confidence before heading into the playoffs next Tuesday, but it was the Blue Devils that emerged victorious with a 52-41 win.
From the opening tip to the final buzzer, the Lisbon Blue Devils controlled the tempo and handled everything Jackson Milton threw their way. The Blue Devils couldn’t break off a big lead until late in the third quarter. Once Lisbon went up by 10, the Bluejays were never able to regain any momentum or chip away at the Lisbon lead.
The Bluejays were led by Cole Grope with 12 points and Andrew Bouch Jr. with 10 points.
The Blue Devils were led by Ryan McCullough with 19 points and 7 rebounds. Blayne Brownfield added 11 points and 4 rebounds. Nic Mundy finished the night with 11 points and 3 rebounds.
Up next for Lisbon will be the first game of the OHSAA boys state playoffs on Tuesday, February 25th, as the 6th seeded Blue Devils will welcome the 11th seeded Western Reserve Blue Devils to town.
