CAIRO -- Noah Justice scored 21 points to help Cairo-Durham post a 58-51 victory over Taconic Hills in Thursday's Patroon Conference boys basketball game.
The Mustangs looked to be on their way to an easy night after taking a 20-8 first-quarter lead, but securing the victory was anything but easy as Taconic Hills fought back to within 24-22 at halftime and 34-33 after three quarters. Cairo-Durham was finally able to put the game away with a 24-18 scoring edge over the final eight minutes.
Jake Hall added 12 points to Cairo-Durham's cause. Louis Laregina had eight.
"This was a good end of the season win for us," Cairo-Durham coach Keith Phillips said. "The kids worked hard and have done so all season. I'm very proud of them. It's going to be tough to replace the boys (three seniors), they are good kids, god defenders and big offensive threats. We have a lot of kids in the program right now, though. We have a big JV team. In years past we've been a little short on players but I think we are going to start filling the roster a little better and have more opportunities to expand out teams."
