By Norwalk Reflector staff • Updated Feb 17, 2019 at 12:11 PM

COLLINS — The second of back-to-back games on weekends have been unkind to the Western Reserve boys basketball team.

After an emotional and physical 68-61 road win at South Central on Friday that won the Roughriders the Firelands Conference title outright, they were sluggish for a half against two-win Edison on Saturday in non-league action.

Trailing 20-15 at halftime, the ‘Riders turned it up a notch in the second half, outscoring Edison 38-23 in a 53-43 victory.

Western (15-4) entered the game 2-3 on Saturdays, and 1-4 in non-league games.

In Saturday’s win over Edison, John Skrada led Western with 16 points, while Luke Rowlinson added 14 points, four rebounds and four assists. Aiden Markley contributed 13 points, while Hayden Huntington grabbed 13 rebounds, and Jude Muenz had five points, seven rebounds and four assists.

Western shot 16-of-48 from the field, including 9-of-29 from the three-point line. The ‘Riders were also 12-of-13 from the free-throw line while outrebounding Edison (2-19) by a 36-21 margin.

Western Reserve (13-0 FC) closes out the regular season on Friday at home vs. Monroeville (7-13, 3-10).
