Warriors score overtime win in comeback battle

Jones declined to speculate about his team's rematch Wednesday Feb. 10 against Corinth. Last meetup, the Warriors lost in double-overtime.

"We're not going to jump ahead," he said, noting his team was slated to play North Warren Wednesday, and will be taking on Luzerne Friday. "We're concerned about this week."

If Warriors win the Corinth matchup, it would force a Western Division playoff game.

Jones said his team is gaining experience on how to pull a win out of grueling, difficult games like Friday's against the Forts.

"We are moving forward, learning to perform better in tough situations," he said. "All this experience is valuable."
