Our Lady Pirates opened their season last night against Pearsall, the 8th grade B team were defeated 5-0, as the 8th grade A team won 29-9. Our B team played great defense, just needed to take the opportunity and shoot more. With practice, time, and repetition it will all come together and fall into place. As for the A team they were aggressive defensively, took them on man to man, and shut Pearsall’s offense down. We executed plays last night successfully, which made all the difference on the scoreboard. Their confidence on the floor shined through, it was quite a sight to see. Our next game is November 21st against Carrizo Springs on their home court @ 4:30, 5:15, 6:15, and 7:00. Thank you for your continued support, hope to see you there!
