Unlike the November 30 game in Greensburg, the Pirates didn’t need to come back from an 11-point, second half deficit this time. After a couple of lead changes in the first quarter, coach Stacy Meyer’s Buccaneers scored the final five points of the period to go up 15-11 at the stop and never trailed again.  Lane Sparks of the Pirates and Robert Raver of the Bulldogs both scored six points while Greensburg’s Drew Comer and Batesville’s Trey Heidlage each sank a 3-pointer.

Coach Aaron Garrett’s Dogs squared the game one final time at 18-all in the second, only to see Greensburg then rattle off eight straight points.  At the half, the difference was five with GCHS holding a 30-25 advantage.

Comer and Raver led their clubs over the second stanza with eight and seven points respectively.  At the half, Raver was up to 13 points while Comer had tallied 11.  Batesville only turned the ball over four times but Greensburg committed no miscues.

The Tree City lads’ lead hit 10 late in the third before BHS bagged the quarter’s final two points to trail 44-36.  Comer dropped in another seven points for the visitor’s while Raver scored five from the stripe on 5 of 6 shooting.

Batesville was down 11, 51-40, in the fourth before mounting a comeback.  With under a minute to play, the Dogs drew within two, 52-50, on a string of points ending on a Charlie Dice deuce.

Out of a timeout with just over a half-minute to go, the Pirates broke the Batesville press with an over-the-top pass which found Andrew Welage in stride. He finished the play with a flush.  Sparks then came up with a big block to deny Batesville a quick counter.  Four free throws by Welage followed to complete a personal 6-0 run and help seal the 60-55 victory for Greensburg.
