Thornton Academy’s Corey Hart goes up for a shot as Sanford’s Brad Bouchard defends during Friday night’s game.

SACO — The Thornton Academy boys basketball team jumped out to a 16-point halftime lead and never looked back in a 79-51 win over visiting Sanford in boys basketball action on Friday night.

“I thought the kids played well,” said TA coach Bob Davies.

Davies was disappointed with his team’s defensive performance in the opening two quarters.

“We gave up 30 points in the first half … defensively I think we struggled a little bit. Second half, we played a little better team defense and didn’t gamble as much,” said Davies.

Senior point guard Jack Tilley led the Trojans with 17 points and seven assists.

TA also got 13 points and eight rebounds from junior forward John Fogg and Ben Lambert chipped in with 10 points.

The Trojans, who improved to 5-0 with the win, will visit Noble at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
