Jesse Hazzard pressures the Charles Wright Tarriers.
Against the Charles Wright Tarriers on Wednesday, the Pirates played as only they can. Starting out with crisp ball movement, the Pirates worked the inside out game to perfection. With Tarriers defenders packed in around Gage, Quinn Holert put down a 3 pointer on the first possession. Matt Kerns would add two more before the end of the first quarter.

Defensively, Vashon hounded the Tarriers from baseline to baseline. They forced Charles Wright to turn the ball over repeatedly while taking good care of the ball on their own end. With this effort and execution, Vashon built a 19-9 first quarter lead and blitzed the Tarriers for a 28-4 second quarter.

With the game firmly under control, Pirate coach Andy Sears cycled in his bench early. He turned it over to them completely midway through the third quarter in this 64-24 Vashon victory.

Pirate Points vs. Charles Wright:
Wegner 19, Gage 13, Kerns 13, Holert 8, Dan Lofland 4, Weston 4, Christian Hasson 3, Matt Amick, Hamzah Griffin, Jesse Hazzard, Tyler Stoffer, Corey Williamson.
