ECI falls at Portal
Portal's Trent Thomas, top, soars over teammate Robert Lee (15) and Emanuel County Institute's Keith Sapp to keep a rebound alive in the second quarter on Friday in Portal.
PORTAL — The Portal Panthers got a tough early test from rival Emanuel County Institute Friday night. The Bulldogs made things tough throughout the night, but Portal was able to maintain a lead and pulled away late to record a 69-55 victory. Portal (4-0) has faced a perennial shortage of height over the years, but is enjoying the transfers of Trent Thomas and Harrison Sherrod — both 6-foot-3 — this season.
