Thanks largely to a monster performance from Lincoln Turner, Reed salvaged the final game of its stint in the Rail City Classic.
Turner went off for 28 points to lead the Raiders to a 66-52 win over Skyline (Oakland) on Saturday morning at Sparks. Reed improved to 3-5 overall and finished the tournament 2-2. The Titans dropped to 2-7.
The Raiders led just 44-39 after three quarters but outscored the Titans 22-13 over the final eight minutes. Turner accounted for 16 of Reed’s points in the final quarter.
Jeremy Ramos finished with 12 and Matt Williams chipped in 10.
The Raiders jumps back into DI North play on Thursday at home against Damonte Ranch in their home opener.
Sparks drops fourth straight
The Railroaders wrapped up an 0-4 weekend in their annual Rail City Classic with a 46-33 home loss to Lovelock on Saturday morning.
Sparks dropped to 1-4 while the Mustangs improved to 8-1.
It was a six-point contest at the half until Lovelock opened the third quarter with a 15-4 run that was too much for Sparks’ offense to overcome. The lead then ballooned to as much as 19 before ending at a 13-point difference.
Matt Longland led the Railroaders with 12. Ricky Guadron nearly reached double digits, finishing with nine.
With the exception of a brief 7-7 tied midway through the first quarter following a pair of Guadron free throws, Lovelock led the entire first half.
The Mustangs led by as much as seven before taking a 23-17 lead to the locker room.
Sparks continues non-league play next Saturday at Yerington.
