Rosie Cunningham/The Reporter SOUTH KORTRIGHT - Unadilla Valley handed the Rams their first loss of the season. The Storm defeated South Kortright 64-49 in a competitive non-league contest Friday.

Standout offender Andrew Jackson dropped 35 points to lead UV, which included six 3-pointers to go along with nine boards. It didn’t look good for the boys in blue from the getgo. The Storm opened scoring and SK didn’t respond until their were behind by a trio of buckets.

Going into the halftime break, UV led 30-12 - the Rams scored only three points in the second frame.

However, the Rams came out of the break strong, outscoring UV 23-13, behind four ba ck- to- ba ck 3-pointers from Austin Lamport to give the squad momentum.

The Storm was deadly from the charity stripe however - going 12-for-12 from the foul line in the quarter to win by double digits. Jackson was 6-for-6 from the line in the fourth and 8-for-8 for the game.
