The Sophomores had to battle for four quarters against the Warriors who were determined to dethrone the Pirates from being conference Champions. But the resilience of Rimmer, Hairston and Clark said otherwise as they remembered the two point lost they sustained in December on the road. With 2:38 remaining in the game, the Pirates began to tighten up their defense, control the the boards, get some key steals from Hairston to pull away with a 43- 35 victory.
At Downers South the Sophomore Lady Pirates had no trouble with the Mustangs and continued their dominance to secure the WSC Gold Division Title 49-31. The Pirates have captured their 3rd consecutive title. Current Overall record 15-2 Current Conference record 10-1.
