Genoa 77, Oak Harbor 73
In a back-and-forth game that saw the lead change countless times, Oak Harbor fell to cross-town rival Genoa, 77-73, in non-conference action last week.
Led by Luke Rightnowar’s 22 points, the Comets stormed back from a second-half deficit and took the lead for good late in the fourth quarter on a layup by guard Casey Gose.
Jake Schimming and Noah Goodrich helped pace Genoa (3-16) by scoring 15 points apiece. All of Goodrich’s points came from beyond the three-point line.
The Rockets got 17 points from Austin Wiegand, who gave the Rockets their final lead on a bucket inside with 50 seconds to play, and A.J. Cecil chipped in with 14 while Greg Haar and Andy Rathbun finished with 12 apiece.
Oak Harbor returns to action this week when it travels to Margaretta (Fri.) and host Danbury (Sat.).
