Indians back on track with win over Jellico

Oneida’s Chancery Botts attempts a layup during the Indians’ 63-45 win over Jellico at OHS Gymnasium on Tuesday, November 20, 2018 | Sarah Dunlap/IH

Oneida used a 25-10 run in the third quarter to take a commanding lead over Jellico at OHS Gymnasium Tuesday (November 20), eventually defeating the Blue Devils 63-45 in a non-district game.

The score was tight for a half for an Oneida team that was looking to bounce back after consecutive losses to Clarkrange. The Indians led throughout, but were up just 30-23 at halftime.

Then came the third quarter.
