The Yellow Jackets went into the consolation bracket after a heart-breaking 43-42 loss to Salem on Dec. 27. Colin Wingerter led Chester with 12 points. Kiner scored ten, but was unable to convert on a controversial no-call as time was running down.

Chester went into the Christmas break with a 65-28 win over Zeigler-Royalton Dec. 21.
