Harrison County’s four seniors had a memorable Senior Night as they led the Thorobreds to a victory Saturday night over the St. Patrick Saints 69-54. 

Marcus Custard, Jared Martin, Malcolm Thomas and Zack Turner each started in the next to last home game of the year.

Harrison County took a first quarter lead and used its overall speed advantage and athleticism to continually expand the lead as time went on during the game.  The Thorobreds took a seven-point lead in the middle of the opening stanza but St. Pat cut it to four 18-14 at the end of the period. 

The second quarter saw Harrison County go to the bench with Corey Nichols, Eric Sanders and Nick Slucher coming in to provide a defensive spark to help Harrison to expand the lead to 11 by half time 33-22.
