FILE — Jefferson County's Zoie Denton (10) traps a Knox Central guard at half court in the Lady Patriots' season opener on Nov. 16. 

RUTLEDGE - The start to a week-long stay in Grainger County resulted in the Jefferson County Patriots' first loss of the year on Monday.

After a second-half to forget, including a scoreless third quarter, the Lady Patriots fell in a hole they couldn't climb out of that led to a 45-27 loss to Northview Academy in their opener at the annual Pizza Plus Thanksgiving Classic at Grainger High School.
