GAME STORY: Jayton advances to first regional final since 1977 with win over Eden

They say that history has a way of repeating itself but the 2018-19 Jayton boys basketball team evidently missed that memo.

After losing in the regional semifinals in three of the past four seasons, the Jaybirds finally broke through in an emphatic way with a 58-25 win over Eden at Abilene Christian University’s Moody Coliseum on Friday night.

The win secured coach Ryan Bleiker’s squad a berth in the Region II-1A final on Saturday at 2 p.m. Jayton will face Irion County for a berth in next week’s state tournament in San Antonio.  Irion County knocked off Paducah 69-58 in the late game.
