The Lady Pirates (2-5 overall; 0-4 MSC) showed strength in the first half, leading by as many as double digits in the first half. They lead the Eagles by two at the end of the first, and by seven at the break, before Austin and Hailey Misamore took over and got the Lady Eagles back into the game. They outscored the Lady Pirates 32-21 in the second half on their to the four point conference win. The Lady Eagles (4-2 overall; 1-1 MSC) had key steals and efficient free throw shooting near the end of the game to cap off their win. The Lady Pirates (2-5 overall; 0-4 MSC) will be back in action on Friday as they try to get their first conference win against Scottsburg. This game will be apart of the second Boy-Girl Doubleheader, with Lady Pirate Varsity vs. Scottsburg at 6:00pm and Pirate Varsity vs. Scottsburg at 7:30pm, both played at the CHS Sports Arena.
