Patriots Fade in Fourth

The Tri Village Patriots are deep into league play in mid January.  The games get critical as they count to the league standings and also the state tournament is on the horizon. Teams are jockeying for a good seed in the tournament.  So every game matters all the more as teams across Ohio work on the 2nd half of their season. So with this situation the Patriots had to face a resurgent Tri-County North team that has caught a wave this winter.  After floundering for many years at the bottom of the league, North has been playing better ball as of late.  The Patriots played with North for most of the game, but they were outpaced down the stretch and dropped a game on the road  62-50....
