The West Side girls’ basketball team finally pocketed their first win of the season last week.
They defeated the North Gem Cowboys at home by over 10 points 47-33. This game was followed by another home contest on Saturday against Malad, which they lost 49-41.
This week the girls will play Grace away on Wednesday and Soda Springs on Friday night at home.
Despite having their starting point guard on the bench for the majority of the game due to an ankle injury, the Pirates were able to play very well against the Cowboys.
Their main strength was rebounding. Abbie Povey had an impressive 19 rebounds and Mattie Creager had 10. Savannah Smart had five and Ally Lemmon pulled down four.
Creager led the team with 14 points on Thursday. Povey chipped in eight and Smart and Mckenzie Aston each had six.
