CLINTONVILLE — The Patriots used a huge third quarter to rally past the Cougars and jump back into the win column.
Northeastern Clinton came out of the gate strong to take a 26-24 lead at the half.
AuSable Valley, though, outscored the Cougars 21-6 in the third quarter to take a 13-point lead.
“NCCS got off to a good start,” Patriots coach Roger Long said. “We again used a great third quarter to outscore them 21-6, which was the difference in the game.
“It was a nice bounce-back win for us and will hopefully point us in the right direction going forward. We were able to get out and run which is a signature to our team.”
Logan Snow led the way offensively for AuSable Valley with 15 points. Taylor Saltus added 12 points, while Meghan Strong finished with 10 points.
