Fast start sends Williamsburg past Harlan

In a quarter when everything went right for Williamsburg and everything went wrong for Harlan, the Yellow Jackets raced to a 38-6 lead after one period on the way to an 88-52 victory Saturday over the visiting Green Dragons.

Senior guard Slaht Hunter was one of four Jackets in double figures with 21 points. Caleb Rose added 14 points, followed by Jason Bray with 13 and Larry Bray with 11.

Jaeden Gist scored 16 to lead the 1-3 Dragons. Charles David Morton tossed in 14. Kaleb McLendon added 13. The Dragons continue to play without point guard Jordan Akal, who suffered an ankle injury in a season-opening loss to Barbourville.

The Dragons return to action Wednesday against Martin County in the WYMT Mountain Classic at Knott Central High School.
