The Green River Pirates have been busy lately as they battle through the winter basketball season. On Dec. 8, they traveled to take on the Monticello Buckaroos in a non-conference game.

The first quarter began with Monticello firing on all cylinders, pulling ahead of the Pirates 24-11. The second quarter was a tighter affair, finding the Buckaroos leading once again by two points, 15-13. The third quarter wasn’t as much of a contest for Monticello, who triumphed 19-5.

The fourth quarter was the lone quarter that the Pirates gained the advantage, ending at 13-2. The Buckaroos took the game with a final score of 60-42.

Next, the Pirates played a neutral non-conference game against Diamond Ranch Academy’s Diamondbacks.

The first quarter saw sharp play from the Diamondbacks as they led 17-13. The second quarter, however, was a tight matchup, seeing the teams even at 16-16.

The Diamondbacks rallied in the third quarter, overcoming the Pirates 20-8. Things changed for the Pirates in the fourth quarter as they were able to come ahead 18-13. This was not enough for a win, however, and the Pirates once again fell to their opponents, 66-55.

Next up, Green River will take on Grand High on Tuesday, Dec. 15 at 7 p.m.
