SIDNEY — For the second straight game, it was close but not quite.
Wapakoneta took on Sidney in a nonleague boys basketball tilt Monday night, and showed plenty of spirit.
The Yellow Jackets prevailed in the end, 65-61, but the game was not decided until two free throws by SIdney's Andre Gordon with three seconds remaining.
Gordon, who has committed to playing at Virginia Tech next year, carried most of the load for the Yellow Jackets. He finished with 42 points on the night, setting the school record for career scoring along the way.
Wapakoneta fell behind by double digits early on, but managed to cut that gap to five by halftime. With 3:30 to go in the third, they got within one point. Sidney stretched things back out, but the Redskins stayed tough until the final buzzer, despite playing their third game in four days.
Adam Scott recorded 31 points for the Redskins, while fellow senior Aaron Good had 11.
