Just two nights after suffering its first loss of the season, the Edgerton High boys basketball team suffered its first Rock Valley Conference defeat.

East Troy overcame a 27-21 halftime deficit to pull out a 58-54 RVC North victory in the Crimson Tide’s gym.

Jacob Growel scored 13 points, including going 7 of 10 from the free-throw line in the fourth quarter, to lead the Trojans’ comeback. Joe Ciriacks added four 3-pointers for 12 points as second-place East Troy improved to 10-3 in the Rock North.

Edgerton, which lost to Division 1 Kettle Moraine on Tuesday, still leads the Trojans at 11-1. Jake Zeimet led the Crimson Tide (11-1) with 13 points. Adam Converse added 11 and Brooks Johnson had 10.
