Rebounding from a 10 point half-time deficit, Medina rallied to defeat host Central Christian Academy 62-57 in a non league game this afternoon.

Aiden Pitts scored 22 to lead Medina as Roosevelt Mitchell added 11, Jerrell Nealy 10, Cayden Lilleby 6, Cole Callard and Justin Pitts 5, Christian Moss 2 and Jason Beyer 1.

Trailing 37-27 at the half, Medina put together a big 19-7 third period scoring edge to key the win. Six players contributed to that rally, including 6 by Nealy, as the Mustangs rallied into a 46-44 lead at the three-quarter mark.

Aiden Pitts then scored 10 in the final stanza to lead a 16-13 Mustangs scoring edge to close out the win.

Medina next visits Barker on Tuesday in a Niagara-Orleans League contest.
