Pirates stumble in playoff battle with Tigers

The Verndale Pirates almost made a man-to-man strategy payoff for the second straight game March 9 in a 65-60 West Sub-Section 5A loss to Browerville.
Having lost to the Tigers twice during the regular season playing a zone defense, the sixth-seeded Pirates decided to take it to the taller Browerville club with a more aggressive defensive plan.
“The kids wanted to do it,” Verndale Head Coach Jordan Hinkle said. “We put them in a good spot.”
