Knights close strong to top Bethlehem

In a game that was closer than the score would suggest, the Marion County Knights defeated the visiting Bethlehem Eagles, 69-56, on Saturday in the fifth annual Autism Classic.
The game was tight throughout, but the Knights (10-6) put the game away in the final minutes. Marion County Coach Montrelle Irvin said he told his team at the half that he thought they would wear down the Eagles (12-4).
“That’s where our conditioning and hard work comes in,” Irvin said.
