Jordan 40, Brighton 39

SANDY — After suffering through a 20-minute delay due to lighting and a 10-point deficit, the Jordan Beetdiggers came from behind to beat the Brighton Bengals, 40-39, in Region 3 boys prep basketball action Friday night.

After spraining his ankle in the fourth and coming back, Chad Broadhead scored five of his team-high 11 points to key the comeback for Jordan.

The Bengals had a chance to win the game, but the layup rimmed out.
