BERLIN CENTER OH- In a game where Western Reserve was spending most of their time playing catch up to Jackson Milton, a late push was enough to give them a hard fought 59-52 win. The Blue Jays led at the end of the first three quarters, and although their lead never ballooned into a big problem, Reserve couldn’t seem to find a way to crack through. In the fourth quarter however it was a mix of timely shooting, and a few easy transition buckets that propelled the Blue Devils to win the frame 24-14.
It was a hard nose effort from Hayden Fellows that paved the way for Reserve. He was able to finish with a game-high 21 points. Dominick Ricciardi also finished in double figure for the Devils with 10. Luke Henning hit a pair of late threes on his way to 8 points.
Aaren Romigh was his same old self for the Blue Jays leading the scoring with 20 points. Ryan Romigh wasn’t too far behind him as he finished in double figures with 13 points. Ezekiel Brock chipped in 8 points for the Jays.
Western Reserve hits the road on Friday as they travel to Sebring. Jackson Milton returns home to face off with Mineral Ridge.
