Braxton Chaney gets a shot off just in time to avoid the block attempt of Wes Maples during Friday’s game. Chaney had a key three-pointer in the final quarter to help his team defeat the Bears, 61-56. – DALE GENTRY | THE STANDARD BANNER

DANDRIDGE - Stellar defense and a patient offense carried Jefferson County High’s boys to their biggest win of the year Friday night – a 61-56 decision over Sevier County that gave them a share of the District 2-AAA lead.

The Patriots (11-7, 5-1 District 2-AAA) took control in the second quarter and never relinquished the lead, handing the Smoky Bears (9-4, 5-1) their first district loss of the season. JCHS led by as many as 14 early in the fourth quarter before Sevier County hit four three-pointers in the final two minutes to trim the lead to 57-53.
