Pirates too strong for Hoboes

Published: Friday, November 22, 2013 at 12:27 AM.

The Pirates closed out the first quarter with a 17-10 run to lead 20-12 at the end of the period.

Five different PDL players scored in the first stanza, which was a sign to how the game would unfold.

While the Pirates shared the wealth in the scoring the Hoboes continued to look inside to Griffin for points. Griffin scored six of her game-high 19 points in the first quarter.

She did get some help from a Ty DeAndrade 3-pointer and a basket in the paint from freshman post player Gracie Reese.

The high octane Pirate offense was less explosive in the second quarter scoring just nine points. But the Pirate defense held the Hoboes to three points as PDL had a 29-15 lead at the half.

The second half was more of the same with the Pirates spreading the ball and scoring around while Laurel Hill continued to work the ball inside to Griffin.

Ponce led 47-21 at the end of the third quarter and finished off the game by outscoring the Hoboes 11-9 in the fourth quarter.
