GIRLS = Jackson Heights 41, Horton 29
Jackson Heights led 13-0 after the first quarter and the rest of the game was pretty even as both teams struggled on the offensive end before the Cobras won 41-29 at Horton on Tuesday night. Jackson Heights missed all 16 three-pointers they shot, but found success inside with Amaya Marlatt posting a game high 15 points and making some big shots in the third quarter after Horton closed the margin to 38-29 with just under two minutes left in the period.

Kylie Dohl got the Cobras off to a fast start with nine of her 14 points in the first stanza and Abby Brey added eight points as Jackson Heights bounced back from a tough season opening loss at JCN to even their record at 1-1.  Horton, now also 1-1, had 26 turnovers and struggled early against the full court press. Maryanna Randall hit two treys and scored 8 of her 12 points in the fourth  quarter and Tatum Lockwood chipped in 11 points in the loss.  

BOYS = Jackson Heights 59, Horton 32
Jackson Heights led 17-7 after one quarter and never really looked back, building a 36-16 halftime edge and then starting the third frame with an 11-0 run to put the game away.  The Cobras dominated inside on both ends of the court as Joel Kennedy had a career high 21 points and Dylan Thompson added 10 of his 12 in the first half. 

Horton had nine players score but committed 22 turnovers and was led by Noah Isaacs with nine points. Quinn Gamino saw his first varsity action of the year in the second half and scored six points before the Chargers fell to 0-2.
