The Washington County Commanders tipped off the regular season Monday night with a home game against Richmond Model.
“You’ve got to be happy getting a “W” first game of the year,” Head Coach Bernard Smalley said.
Smalley’s team jumped out to an early lead over the Patriots and were on top 16-15 after the first quarter.
The Commanders built on their lead and were up 36-33 at halftime.
When the dust settled, Washington County came away with a 79-70 victory.
