Pirates’ Late Surge Comes Up Short at Seymour

The Charlestown Pirate Basketball team traveled to Seymour Thursday evening for an out of conference contest versus the Seymour Owls (4-7).  The Pirates trailed the majority of the game; and by as much as twelve points before rallying in the fourth to cut the deficit to two with two minutes remaining.  Then the opportunities ended as the Pirates fell 52-49 to drop to 4-6 on the season.  Jamal Long lead the Pirate scoring with 14, and was named the Coyle Chevy, Buick, GMC and Coyle Nissan Player of the Game by CPPSB.  Korey Harris finished the game with 10 points and Tristan Chester added nine.  Charlestown is back in action Tuesday at Rock Creek Academy.
