LAWTON - The Galva-Holstein Pirates "played a very good first quarter" last week against Lawton-Bronson, said their coach Bob Lee, "then we went cold shooting." After leading 14-10 after one, the Pirates saw their lead gone by halftime, and never got it back. Lawton-Bronson took the Maple Valley Conference contest, 51-32.
Though disappointed with the Pirates' 35.5% shooting, coach Lee was happy about their play at the other end of the floor, saying he was pleased with how his defense worked hard and kept a very talented offensive team to 51 points.
Individually, the Pirates were led in scoring by Taylor Nees, who scored 10 points on 4-7 shooting from the field. Nees also had five rebounds. Ben Andresen and Sam Radke contributed six points each to the scoring attack. Mark Cronin had 11 rebounds for the Pirates, along with two steals and three assists.
