Ellington scored 17 points, while Martin added 14 for the Rough Riders in the non-league contest.

Jeremiah Lepp chipped in with nine points for Roosevelt.

Field’s leader in scoring was Joe Crawford, who hit a pair of 3-pointers and put 12 in the scoring column. Trevor Dixon, a freshman, scored nine for the Falcons (0-3).

Kent Roosevelt jumped out to a 29-13 lead at halftime before the second half was more competitive, with the Rough Riders holding a slight 29-28 edge in the final two quarters of scoring.

Manny Smith pulled down a team-high 11 rebounds for the Falcons.



On the second night of a back-to-back, the G-Men fared much better than Friday’s 20-point defeat to rival Windham.

On Saturday, the G-Men battled to a narrow loss to Bristol, which was led by Trevor Wendenhall’s big night.

Wendenhall finished with 24 points to lead all scorers in the game, while he received scoring help from Mikey Burbach with 13 points for Bristol.

Garfield was led by Aidan Hill’s 16 points. Preston Geed and Jackson Sommer each added 13 points for the G-Men (0-3), who got hot from long distance in the game to connect on 10 from deep.

Garfield led 16-13 after the first quarter and 29-26 at halftime. Bristol won the third quarter 20-15 to take a 46-44 lead into the fourth quarter.



Wickliffe completed a comeback win over the Red Devils on Saturday afternoon in Mantua.

An offensive explosion in the second quarter lifted Crestwood to a 36-26 halftime lead, but Wickliffe outscored the Devils 36-22 in the second half to pull off the narrow victory.

Crestwood’s second quarter included 27 points and five 3-pointers.

Charlie Schweickert sunk three of them and Dekota Johnson hit for another two.

Both were the leading scorers for Crestwood in the game, with Johnson scoring 21 points and Schweickert hitting for 13. Augie Schweickert also reached double-digits for Crestwood, finishing with 10 points.

Wickliffe’s leader was Walter Cable, who had 21 points, but he had plenty of support with Shawn Derbanc finishing with 16 points and Jimmy Wheeler with 13 for Wickliffe. The trio were an integral part of Wickliffe’s come-from-behind triumph.




The Rovers dominated in their fifth win of the season on Saturday, defeating the host Bombers by 36.

Eleven different Rootstown players (5-1) reached the scoring column, with Nadia Lough leading the way with nine points. She also pulled down a game-high 11 rebounds.

Aubrey Kline and Addy Germann both scored eight points for the Rovers, who quickly bounced out to a 13-3 lead that grew to a 28-3 lead at halftime after they held the Bombers (1-3) scoreless in the second quarter.

Mariah Woods led Windham in scoring with 10 points.
