In his team’s 79-34 road victory Tuesday night over Porter’s Chapel, St. Joseph Catholic School sophomore Jerrian King led the Fighting Irish with 18 points.
King was far from the only St. Joe players to score.
In fact, for the first time that he can remember, St. Joseph coach James Hunter had all of his players — all 13 of them this year — score a point in the same game.
“We played a good game, and I was happy that all the younger kids got some playing time,” Coach Hunter said.
The win by the Fighting Irish pulls their record to 7-4 this season. St. Joseph’s next game is at Manchester Academy Thursday night. On Jan. 5, Manchester Academy came into St. Joseph and defeated the Irish by one point, 65-64 in overtime.
“We still have not put together a full ball game, and we are going to have to do that if we hope to beat some of the best teams in our conference,” Coach Hunter said. “Even though we have six seniors, we are still a young team. We start three sophomore, one junior and one senior.”
Along with King, the other leading scorers for St. Joseph Tuesday were Phillon Johnson (14 points), C. J. Moore (10 points) and (Donnie Smith 9 points).
