EDGERTON, Wis.—The Turner Trojans just barely came short in their effort to give Rock Valley Conference rival Edgerton its first loss of the season, losing 68-61 Monday night.

The Trojans were initially scheduled to face Janesville Craig, but when word came down Monday morning that the Cougars were unable to play, Turner was quickly able to schedule a contest with the Crimson Tide.

The Trojans, who fell to the Crimson Tide 77-45 in the second game of the season, were much more competitive this time around.

Turner trailed 36-29 at halftime, and allowed the Crimson Tide to score the first five points of the second half before mounting a comeback.

The Trojans eventually tied the game at 46 with 11 minutes left, and it was a tight after thereafter. Turner trailed by just a point at 62-61 with a minute to play, but couldn’t score while the Crimson Tide closed out the game by converting at the free throw stripe.

Turner was led by Danny Burrows, who had three 3-pointers on the way to 17 points. Konner Giddley and Alvin Jacobs each added 12 points for Turner.

Clayton Jenny went 13-for-17 from the free-throw line en route to a game-best 21 points for Edgerton.

Turner will face Burlington Tuesday night.
