Pirate 8B boys split past two

The Greensburg 8B basketball team defeated the St. Bartholomew Fightin’ Irish 24-18 for its first win of the season. The Pirates scored the first basket of the game and led the rest of the way.

“This Greensburg team lost to this St. Bartholomew team last year, so it is great to see these guys improve year after year,” said head coach Justin Tucker. “I really was impressed with what I saw.”

Cory Adams and Zach Pokrzywinski led the team in scoring with 6 points each, while Jared Hasselbring added 4. Keaton Atchley, Dylan Barber, Tanner Carman, and Kirk Scott each gave the Pirates 2 points to add to the total. Barber and Hasselbring led the team in rebounds with five boards each, as James Scudder and Kirk Scott each had four. According to Coach Tucker, Thomas Stevens and Darian Davis provided excellent defense throughout the night.

In its second game of the season, the 8B boys fell to visiting St. Nicholas 34-30. After trailing 30-15 at the beginning of the fourth quarter, the Pirates fought back to make it a competitive ending.

“In each of our first two games, we have been down,” said coach Tucker. “It’s nice to see us have the ability to fight back the way we do.”

Cory Adams led the team in scoring with 13 points. Zach Pokrzywinski added 7 points, while point guard Keaton Atchley and Dylan Barber each chipped in four. James Scudder also scored one point. Barber also led the team in rebounds with 4.
