SOUTH WEBSTER — For three quarters, the game was very electric between the Green Bobcats and South Webster Jeeps.
And then someone turned off the power switch on the Bobcats.
Down just 3 points going into the fourth quarter in a nip-and-tuck game, Green managed just 3 points in the fourth quarter and fell 69-49 to the Jeeps in a non-league game.
Each team had three players in double figures. Wiley Sanders scored 15 points — all in the first half — Ethan Huffman scored 14 and Levi Singleton 13 to pace the Bobcats while Trae Zimmerman had a game-high 20 points, Cam Carpenter 17 and Will Collins 16.
Zimmerman and Carpenter combined for 13 points as the Jeeps took a 19-17 first quarter lead. Sanders scored 8 points for Green with Singleton hitting a trifecta and scoring 5 points.
The Bobcats rallied to take a 33-31 halftime lead as Sanders got 7 points, Huffman 6 and Singleton hit another trey.
The Jeeps came back to take a 49-46 lead in the third quarter as Collins scored 8 points including 4-of-4 at the foul line. Camper was 2-for-2 at the line as he and Zimmerman scored 4 points each. Singleton had another triple and scored 5 points with Huffman getting 4.
A basket by Huffman and a foul shot by Levi Sampson provided all of Green’s scoring in the fourth quarter.
Zimmerman had 8 points and the Jeeps were 5-of-6 at the foul line as they outscored Green 20-3.
