WEST CARROLLTON — The Sidney Yellow Jackets let West Carrollton stay in the game for a half, but came out in the third quarter and dominated on their way to a 75-47 victory in boys basketball action Friday night on the road.

The victory put the Yellow Jackets at 8-1 on the season and they will be back in action Tuesday at home against the Xenia Buccaneers.

West Carrollton drops to 0-9.

Sophomore Andre Gordon had 27 points by the end of the third quarter as he led the Yellow Jackets on the night.

Sidney was ready to run away with it in the first quarter, sprinting to a 24-11 lead after one. But West Carrollton would not go without a fight and scored the first seven points of the second quarter to close the gap to 24-19.

The Jackets responded, however, and pulled out to a 36-22 lead with a minute left in the half, but then let the Pirates score six of the last seven points of the second quarter to cut the lead to 37-28 at the break.

The third quarter was the difference, though. Sidney came out and scored the first 15 points to open up a 52-28 bulge, and it was 57-31 after three periods.

“We played in spurts in the first half,” said Sidney coach John Willoughby. “We got the lead then did some bad things with the ball and didn’t rebound. But we had a sense that if we buckled down, we’d be okay, and we went out in the third quarter and didn’t allow them a point until they banked in a three-pointer at the buzzer.”

Gordon finished with 29 points to lead the Jackets, and Ratez Roberts added 10.
