IRONDEQUOIT - Poor weather made the Jamestown Red Raiders' return trip Monday from the Irondequoit Basketball Tournament an especially long one.
More than four hours long to be exact.
The day was made even longer by what transpired in the championship game earlier in the afternoon.
Less than 24 hours after posting an impressive victory over Edison Tech, the Red Raiders committed 20 turnovers and struggled offensively for 32 minutes on their way to a 48-42 setback against host Irondequoit.
The win dropped Jamestown's record to 10-2, while the Eagles improved to 11-1.
"I felt we took two steps forward (Sunday) night and a step back today," Red Raiders coach Ben Drake said. "Irondequoit is a good team. They're very solid, they had very good guard play and they took us out of our offense. Unfortunately, we did not respond very well to it. They really kept us out of any sort of offensive flow.
"It didn't help that Tommy (Campion) had a bad shooting night."
Campion, the Red Raiders' leading scorer, was limited to 12 points after erupting for 28 against Edison Tech. All told, he shot 4-of-19 from the floor.
"He didn't have a whole lot of room to breathe,'' Drake said. "When he did have the ball in his hands, they did a nice job of getting into his face and then helping really hard when he put the ball on the floor. Most of his shots were contested, but the ones inside the lane were ones he had decent looks, but he just missed them."
Despite its struggles, Jamestown took a one-point lead, 36-35, with five minutes remaining only to see Irondequoit's Tyler Stenglein answer with a 3-pointer and then a teammate parlayed a Red Raider turnover into another basket.
"We never had it back under four points,'' Drake said.
Campion led Jamestown with 12 points and four assists, junior Quinn Lee Yaw had 10 points and 16 rebounds, and sophomore Zack Panebianco chipped in nine points and four assists.
Wyatt Smith had 16 points and Stenglein added 15 for Irondequoit.
The Red Raiders return to action on Friday when they travel to Clarence. Jamestown won the first meeting between the schools. A week from today, the Red Raiders look to avenge their only Erie County Interscholastic Conference Division 1 loss when they travel to Williamsville North.
"It was a good tournament for us, we played two good teams and we lost to a better team today,'' Drake said. "But we have no time to dwell on it, because the league title and the playoff seeding is really going to be determined in the next two games we play.''
NOTES: In the championship game of the junior varsity tournament, Jamestown suffered a 42-35 setback to Irondequoit. Zacc Kinsey led the Red Raiders (8-2) with 11 points.
