CHESTER -- For the first time since 1976, the Chester Yellow Jackets have won their own Chester Invitational Tournament, beating Cobden 52-45 in the championship game.

Trophy day was originally scheduled last Saturday in Chester, but the snowy weather led to the tournament's final day to be moved to this Saturday.  With potential for more wintry weather problems, they moved the title game to Wednesday night.

Here is Wednesday's tournament scoreboard.  Games with highlights are marked in italics with an *.
