The first home game of the season was a disappointment for the Banks County boys Tuesday night as the Leopards hosted the Habersham Central Raiders.
After coming off the season opening at Rabun County last week where the boys split the two game opener, the Leopards were looking for a close battle against the Raiders and started off that way, but Habersham pulled ahead and won the 84-59 contest.
Foul trouble seemed to be the theme for the night as both benches worked to keep the players from sending the other side to the line. For Banks County, Adam Hiten was the best on free throws hitting 12 of 14 for all of his points. Daz Steeple also had a high percentage on the line, going 2 for 3.
Habersham led by seven after the first quarter and outscored Banks County 20-15 in the second quarter for a 33-21 advantage at the break.
