PILOT-MOUNTAIN — The East Surry boys varsity team won its home opener Tuesday night against Ashe County Huskies by a score of 51-28.
Head Coach Jason Anderson said that he was pleased with the team effort Tuesday on both sides of the ball.
“I thought our guys were patient, they waited on screens and got a lot of deflections on defense as a team. We had 15 assists and did an excellent job at the boards. The team had a total of 27 rebounds,” Anderson said.
Anderson said he also saw good communication, which is something he looks for. “The intensity on defense created transition offense and worked to bring a victory. Some younger guys came off the bench and gave some me good minutes.”
The guys did well against a good defensive team, said Gunter.

During the third quarter, the team put up a total of 11 points outscoring the Huskies by four points in the quarter.
