When you look at the final statistics of Thursday’s Kirk -North Delta game at Batesville, you would have thought the game came down to the final play.
The Raiders rode the 236-yard passing performance from sophomore Colbert Hathcock, but it wasn’t enough as Kirk came up short in a 14-12 decision to the Green Wave in the regular season finale for both teams.
With the setback, North Delta improves to 7-3 on the season. Kirk is now 4-6.
Kirk scored on two long plays in the passing game. Hathcock tossed passes of 85 and 63 to Alex McDurmon for the Raiders two scores. For the night, Hathcock was 13-23 for 236 yards.
