AURORA — A tight, hard-fought defensive game in the EIAC hit the floor Saturday as the South Dearborn Knights played host to the Greensburg Pirates.

A close game throughout was finally put away by the Pirates at the charity stripe as Greensburg improved to 2-0 on the season and 1-0 in the EIAC with a 49-35 victory over the Knights.

“It was a tight game throughout,” Greensburg head coach Stacy Meyer said.

Greensburg hit 19-33 from the charity stripe, but was able to connect when they most needed in the fourth quarter.

“That is one area we have to improve on, but I was proud of the boys tonight,” Coach Meyer added.

Latroi Wright and Alex Meyer both tallied 10 points and five rebounds to lead the way for the Pirates.

Craig Houk chipped in with eight points as did Zach Brown.

Brok Hersley finished with seven points.

Ty Miller had four points and Reid Billieu finished with two to round out the scoring for the Pirates.

“Our scoring was spread out. Guys did a nice job of stepping up and making plays,” Coach Meyer said.

“Both teams played tremendous defensively. It was not easy, but we were happy to get our first conference win,” Coach Meyer added.

Greensburg hosts Lawrenceburg Friday in the Tigers’ first game of the season. The junior varsity game is set for 6 p.m.
