Pirates caught in Midway talons
PERRIN - Hard work and heart will get you a long way in this life. It just didn’t get the host Pirates a win Monday night.
The young Bucs, who start a freshman and a sophomore, looked to be pulling away from visiting Midway early in the third quarter when the game began to get out of hand physically for both teams. The Falcons were able to handle their emotions better and went on a 15-0 run to take command and post a much harder than it looked 57-41 win at Pirate Gym.
Despite the loss which dropped the team to 0-2, Perrin Coach Max Hefner said he likes his players’ spirit.
“We control what we can control. We let things out of our control dictate the game,” Hefner offered. “Both teams let things get out of hand but I was impressed with the improvement we showed over our last game.”
Midway looked to blow things open early as Perrin had no answer for post Blake Ostermann, whose four layins inside helped the Falcons take a 12-4 lead.
