Jan 13, 2014
Last week the Pirates improved to 10-0 beating Bellevue Christian 65-37, and dominating Chimicum 67-28.

On Tuesday The Pirates traveled to Bellevue to take on the Bellevue Christian Vikings.

The game started very well for Vashon with Junior Ian Stewart knocking down a three for the first score. Vashons' defense came to play on Bellevue Christians first possession forcing a shot clock violation. Despite the dominating start the first quarter was pretty even ending with the Pirates up 11-10.

In the second quarter, the Pirates woke up and started to pull away, but the Viking defense managed to keep both Sam Yates and Jessie Norton contained. Stewarts defense was great during the second quarter as the Pirate defense only allowed five points. At the half Vashon found themselves ahead 26-15.

The third quarter revealed more Pirate dominance as Yates took off scoring whenever the opportunity presented itself. In the fourth Norton started to heat up beating the defense with great consistency. At this point there was no hope for the Vikings. With three minutes left coach Sears sent in the backups and sophomore Sam Schoenberg hit a corner three to put the Pirates up by 30. At the end of the game the Pirates found themselves in the win column once again.

Yates lead the scoring with 14, but was closely followed by Norton with 13.

On Friday night the last place Chimicum Cowboys came to the rock to take on the undefeated Pirates on their home court.

The game couldn't have started any better for The Pirates, going on a 10-0 run in the first four minutes. At the end of one The Pirates were in the drivers seat up 17-2

Junior forward Darren May started it off in the second quarter with a put back basket to add to The Pirates commanding lead. Chimicum was more successful scoring in the second quarter, but it was still no match for Vashon. Towards the end of the first half Sophomore Noah Chee threw up an impossible shot that somehow made it in the basket to capitalize a great personal half of basketball. At the half the score read Pirates 30 Cowboys 10.

The second half revealed little to no change in gameplay as The Pirates coasted to victory, winning 67-28. Chee lead the Pirates scoring with 14.

Vashon Head Coach Andy Sears was impressed with the improvement of sophomore’s Noah Chee and Josh Tillman. Chee busted out of a slump last week scoring in double digits in both games. Sears credited a great week of practice for the teams success. “I thought our guys really respected the process of preparation and were ready to play”, said Sears.
