It was quite a different story for the Central Bobcats. They were embarrassed in a 26 point loss to Camelback. One may figure that the Jaguars would run the table on Friday night at Central, but that is why they play the games.
And this game was quite the defensive struggle. The Bobcats led 10-7 after the first quarter.

On the Jaguars' next possession, Alex Campbell's entry pass was intercepted by Tony Romero. On the two on one fast break, Romero hit the lay-up and was fouled in the process. His free throw was good, and the Bobcats took a 35-32 lead.
On the Jaguars' next two possessions, they were 0 for 4 from three point range. On the final possession, Stewart fired up an air ball from downtown and that sealed the deal for the Bobcats, who hold on for the 35-32 victory.
"We gave this one
away. We should be 2-0 in the Metro," said
One has to wonder if the Jaguars were overlooking Central, thinking about their showdown on Tuesday night with the first place North Mustangs.
Central proved that they cannot be taken lightly. Derek Minter is establishing himself as one of the premier shooters in the Metro Region.
Both teams are now 1-1 in conference play.
