PITTSBURG, Texas — The Pleasant Grove Hawks made the Pittsburg Pirates walk the plank 52-30 Friday night.
Sophomore Halston Baca led the varsity squad with 14 points. Junior Jaylen Boardley had 12 points. Senior Ben Bricker added 10.
“We played pretty well early but couldn’t get the ball to go down,” coach Craig Collvins said. “We felt like we could’ve extended our lead going into halftime. Second half our scoring hit a lot better but I thought we broke down at times in defense. Overall we are obviously happy with our effort and will take the win.”
The Hawks improve to 9-15 overall with a 2-1 record in district play.
Jacob Graham led the Pirates with 12 points. Pittsburgh is 6-18 overall with an 0-3 mark in district play.
The Hawks’ junior varsity squad also found a win with a 46-23 victory.
