Tough weekend for JV Devils

After winning an overtime thriller from Peebles earlier in the week, it as a tough weekend for Coach Rob Meade and his JV boys from North Adams as the team dropped a pair of decisions on their home court, 39-38 to Ripley on Friday night and 46-38 to Minford on Saturday night.

In Friday night’s action, the Devils jumped to an early lead with the aid of a Jacob Call three-pointer, on top 9-6 after the first quarter. North Adams stayed in front in the second quarter getting scores from six different players to lead 22-20 at the intermission.

Things began to go south for the home team in the third stanza as the Blue Jays battled back and took the lead, with Ryan Harney hitting a trey to help the Jays switch the scoreboard to their side as the visitors now led 31-27 after three periods of action. In the final seven minutes, the Devils only managed two field goals, one by Ethan Campbell and one by Ryan Shupert, but hit seven free throws to keep it close. The Jays got a pair of threes in the final quarter from Harney and Jaki Royal and held on to claim the 39-38 road victory.

In the loss, Ryan Shupert led the Green Devils with 13 points, with Jacob Call adding 9 and Ethan Campbell 6. Harney topped the winning Blue Jays with 11.

Saturday night’s game was somewhat a different story as this time the Devils fell behind early, trailing Minford 10-5 at the end of the first quarter. In the second period, the home team got two buckets from Seth Daulton and a three-pointer from Jacob Call but still found themselves trailing at halftime 23-16.

The two teams played an even third period at 10-10 and in the final seven minutes, the Devils, just as the night before, only managed a pair of field goals, an Ethan Campbell trey and a two-pointer from Daulton. Minford outscored the home side 13-12 over the final seven minutes to escape town with the 46-38 win.

Seth Daulton led the Devils with 13 points in the loss, followed by Ryan Shupert with 8 and 5 each from Colt Shumaker and Jacob Call.

The JV Devils will be back on their home court again on Friday night, looking to move back to the .500 mark when they host the West Union Dragons in a 6 p.m. tip off.

Ryan Shupert led the North Adams JV squad with 13 points in their one-point loss to Ripley last Friday night.
