Harris embraces his varsity status as Trojans win big

HURLOCK — Freshman Dwan Harris scored eight of his career-high 16 points in the opening quarter as the Trojans ran their hosts from North Dorchester High School out of their own gym Thursday night, Jan. 11.

Kent County senior Larry Steward led all players with 27 points, including six in the first frame, in the 62-43 victory.

The Trojans improved to 2-2 in the new year, and 4-5 on the season.

Behind the trio of Steward, Harris and junior JySir Valentine, Kent County built what turned out to be an insurmountable 19-4 lead after eight minutes.

By halftime, with Steward and Harris combining for 13 more points, the spread was 38-17.

The Trojans led by 25 points, 53-28, heading into the fourth quarter.

Valentine finished with eight points.

Jonah Somerville added five points, all in the second half.

Nasir Black, Landon Wallace and Karon Houston came off the bench in the second quarter to contribute two points apiece.

Kent County coach Sobaye Scott cleared his bench by halftime. 

Seven of the nine Trojans who made the trip contributed on the scoreboard.

“When the guys run the offensive sets, we become very successful,” Scott told The Evening Enterprise.

Kent County also played solid defensively, and no one was in foul trouble.

It should be noted that North Dorchester, winless through 10 games, is rebuilding after graduating its entire starting unit including North Bayside Player of the Year Nasir Polk.

NEXT UP: Kent County, which has not played since the win at North Dorchester last week, is home tomorrow (Jan. 18) against Easton. The junior varsity game tips off at 4 p.m., followed by the varsity game at about 5:30 p.m.
