Comet boy cagers rally late for good win

By

This was a game that the Comets needed. And one that they may have lost in the past. After taking Lansing Sexton to the limit in a one point loss, the Comets needed a solid win to boost their confidence before the Christmas break came.

After trailing heading into the final period of play, head coach Scott Lewis’ boys came back with a 16 point fourth period to defeat the host Vikings, 54-50.

Free throws down the stretch and some key defensive play for the Comets aided in the win.

Jackson held a slim one point lead after the first period of play, 16-15 before jumping ahead by just two points at the half, 30-28.

Jackson appeared to be on their way to the win with a 16-10 third period edge before the Comets rallied in the final eight minutes of play, outscoring the Vikings 16-4 for the win.

Tommy Haurer and Nathan Megge paced the win with 13 points each. Cassell Jones also hit double figures with 10 points.

Zach Artibee closed with four points, Albert Christensson two, Damonick Hall two, TJ Houghton two and Jubraun McKinley eight.

Grand Ledge is now 2-3 after finishing 4-18 last year.
