Start boys basketball beats Scott for City League championship

The Spartans beat the Bulldogs 57-53 for their fourth City League title in the last five years.

TOLEDO, Ohio — Start won the City League Championship over Scott 57-53 on Thursday from Waite High School.

Start used a big first half, building a 12-point lead at halftime to hang on against Scott, who made a push in the fourth quarter.

The Spartans captured their second title in a row and the fourth in the last five years.

"It's special. We've won it four out of the last five years. We haven't been predicted to win it three of those times, including this year," said Start head coach Matt Wortham. "They've been resilient, they stayed the course, even through a lot of frustrations and adversity. I'm glad we pulled it out."

"It feels real good, real good," said senior Corvell Morgan. "Next up, districts."
