It was a bittersweet loss as the Pirates fell to Grandville CC. They fought till the end as was their mantra all year long. Down early 19-8 the pirates clawed back. Down 11 at the half, Hart cut it to 3 at the end of 3. Not enough buckets for the pirates led to the 11 point loss. Simon Herrera and the rest of the seniors didn’t want to go out without a fight which was fitting for them, the way they have scrapped and fought and worked their way through obstacles. Much respect goes out to the seniors who played their last game in a Pirate uniform. Their legacy will be remembered by the district title they brought to heart and have set the standard for so many younger pirates that follow.
A big thanks to the Pirate Posse and parents and fans that showed at the game tonight. Great support as always and a great showing for the distance travelled. Thanks to all for supporting the Pirates!
Simon Herrera led the Pirates with 16 points as Alec Kempker had 10. Great defensive effort as always by the pirates.
