TOPEKA, Kan. - The Junction City High School basketball teams swept their Centennial League double-header Tuesday night inside Coach D's Gym at Highland Park High School.

In the girl's contest, Junction City took down the Lady Scots 62-33. 

Highland Park only suited out five players and at times was forced to play with just four on the floor due to injury. 

Coach Tim Testa's Lady Jays were lead by 17 points from Mellana Davis and 16 from Lucy Rivera.

The Lady Jays improved to 2-5 on the season.

On the Boys side, Junction City trailed 50-45 with just under two minutes to play, but ended the game on a 7-0 run to steal a win, capped off by a Howard Johnson layup with just 2 seconds to go. 

Johnson lead the Blue Jays with 26 points. Chris Dixon added 15 more.

The Blue Jays are now 4-2 on the year.

Both teams will be back in action on Friday when they host Washburn Rural at 6 and 7:45 p.m..
