Dallas Ehrmantraut led the Pirates with 23 points and hit on three of three-point attempts. Travis Lollar and Marcos Gomez tied with 11 points. Josh Gilb netted 10.

James Kveton was Verndale's top board man with 14.

Matt Moss paced the Wildcats with 12 points.

"We are off to a slow start but are looking to turn the corner as the season progresses," Verndale Head Coach Jordan Hinkle said. "We need to work harder on the defensive end and also take care of the ball better."
