The Pirates knew what had to be done.
Nordheim coach Carlton Williams said, “We will have size on them and should be able to out-rebound them. [We need] to slow down senior Ben Enriquez and junior Tony Sanchez (two top scorers) and we will be fine.
The first quarter the Pirates were behind 9-10. Rocksprings tried to take it to a bigger lead only to find Nordheim close of their trail ending the half 27-32.
