The Northside-Columbus boys basketball team is perfect in Region 1-AAAAA no longer. Thomas County Central upset the region-leading Patriots 58-47 at home Saturday.
Austin Bryant led the Yellow Jackets' effort with 14 points, while Deondre Cooksey added 13. Chris Jones finished with seven for Central, which improved to 6-15 and 2-5. Northside fell to 12-8 and 5-1.
"We needed that confidence builder and hopefully we can keep rolling," Central coach Chad Ward said. "We'll come back to practice and keep working hard."
Central is off until Friday when it hosts Hardaway.
