The Pirates played with effort and enthusiasm the entire game. It’s a game of runs and unfortunately Mason County Central had more runs in them as a team. It was an up and down first half which left the Pirates trailing by 4. To begin the 3rd, Hart missed a few shots on the interior and were careless with the basketball which led to Mason County making a push and shifting the momentum solely to MCC. The Spartans made more plays and more shots down the stretch which left the Pirates defeated by a score of 31-55.
The last time on the court in a Pirate uniform were Zach Bitely and Delfino Hernandez. Zach has been asked to do different jobs throughout the year and has stepped up and met those demands each time. Zach has put in a lot of off season work and should be proud of his efforts in the Hart uniform. Delfino Hernandez is the type of player that you always know what you’re getting. He is a guy that brings a ton of energy off the bench and looks to knock down 3’s. Thank you to both Zach and Fino for your time, efforts, contributions and willingness to work.
