Jets lose home season finale

ANDERSON — The Anderson Prep Jets have had their struggles winning games this season, and their matchup against visiting Morristown was no different as they dropped a 60-38 decision.

The Jets (2-18) found themselves down by 17 points in the third quarter with 4:15 to play, but they fought their way back into the game and were down just 10 points heading into the final eight minutes of play.

Morristown (11-9) doubled up the home team 24-12 in the final stanza and ran away with the 22-point win.

Leo Harris was the biggest factor in getting his team back into the game in the third quarter. He was 4-of-7 hitting one from 3-point range and a free throw for 10 of his team’s 12 points in the third.

The visiting Yellow Jackets put four players in double figures, led by 17 points from Patrick Munson. He made seven of those points in the final quarter, and teammates Andrew Shepherdson and Kyle Hallauer made five of their 10 game points in the final eight minutes.

Jonanthon Barclay was the only other player from Anderson Prep to score in double figures with 11 points, seven of those coming in the final stanza of play.

The home team Jets struggled to score and didn’t get any points on the scoreboard until 58 seconds remained in the first period. That’s when Bailey Ploughe hit a shot, but it was all the points they could muster as they shot just 1-of-11 from the field.

APA scored its next bucket of the game just 45 seconds into the second quarter, but Morristown went on an 11-0 run to grab a 24-4 lead with 2:42 before the half. The Jets followed that run with a 10-3 run to trail 27-14 at the intermission.

The home team outscored the Yellow Jackets 12-9 in the third quarter to make it a game, but they ran out of steam in the fourth and the visitors ran away with the game from that point forward.

  • SPT - HB0726 - Mathis - Colts Camp day two 101 Mathis getting lighter workload as Colts get creative

    Robert Mathis is caught in an interesting predicament. The veteran outside linebacker finds himself preparing as hard as he can to play a football season that he will watch for the first month on television. That's the result of a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy, and it means fans will see less of the league's reigning sack champion on the practice field.

The former second-round pick was running out of chances when the Indianapolis Colts signed him during the 2012 season. Eleven starts and eight interceptions later, he’s ingrained as the team’s slot cornerback — working under the final season of a two-year, $4 million deal.
