Facing Dilley on Friday, the Pirates took the win at 68-62 in an intense game. “The Wolves got hot from the 3-point line and hit 12 threes to stay within striking distance all night, but our full court pressure closed out the game. The second half was a total team effort to win on the defensive side,” said Coach Jacob Hernandez.
Lytle took down Poteet on Friday night in an easily won game. Winning 96-55, “the Pirates were led by sophomore sensation Jalen Guevara who had 27 points, 8 rebounds, and 6 steals. The kid was on fire from the outside and couldn’t be stopped driving into the paint for lay ups over the Poteet defenders. Junior Bryson Duty had a great game off the bench scoring 17 points and having 3 steals. Bryson has averaged over 10 points the last four games becoming a key asset of the bench. Jordan Balderaz added 13 points and Jacob Ulrich added 11 points to keep the offense going through the night,” reported Coach Hernandez.
