The Jordan-Matthews girls’ basketball team hit a cold spell in the fourth quarter Friday night, leading to a disappointing 50-35 loss at Randleman in 2A PAC 7 Conference basketball action.

For the Lady Jets (8-13 overall, 4-5 conference), it was a tough loss to swallow considering the locals failed to score in the final 6:42 of the contest, a point when they trailed the Tigers (10-8, 7-2) by just three points.

Jordan-Matthews trailed 7-0 to start the game, but a 9-1 run in response helped pull the locals within 13-12 after one quarter thanks for four points each from Jocelyn Mitchell and Elia Wright, who each finished the night with 12 points. The Lady Jets led by two with just over a minute left in the half before Tyler Deaton tallied a pair of baskets to give the Tigers a 21-19 cushion at the break.

Taylor Gantt had six of her 11 points for Randleman in the third quarter as the hosts out scored Jordan-Matthews 15-13 in the stanza to entering the fourth leading 36-32, setting the stage for the game-clinching 12-0 spurt by the Tigers.

Deaton and Hannah Shaw each notched 12 points for Randleman in the win, with Shaw sparking the game-sealing 12-0 run in the fourth quarter with six points.
