MOUNT VERNON — There are some basketball games where you know exactly what propelled your team to the victory. Then, there are others that you have no idea how you walked out of the gym with a victory.
Friday night was one of those nights for the Mount Vernon girls basketball team.
The Yellow Jackets trailed by seven points with five minutes to go, their best player was on the bench with five fouls, and a Westerville Central half-court press was giving them fits. But, somehow the Jackets mustered up enough fight to scrape out a 42-41 victory over the visiting Warhawks.
“We just kept fighting. That’s all we really did — we kept fighting and competing,” said Mount Vernon coach Doug Savage.
