The team will be looking for its second win of the season when it hosts Warrenton’s Lady Warriors tonight (Dec. 9).

The 3A Lady Warriors will be bringing a 2-1 record, which may improve since they will travel to Knappa tonight for another non-league battle.

Warrenton opened its season last Friday with an 83-6 rout of the Lady Irish. A day later, Warrenton dropped a 63-55 decision to the 4A Junction City Lady Tigers, falling to 1-1 for the season.

The Lady Warriors picked up their second win of the season when the 3A school hammered smaller Naselle in a short road trip into western Washington by a 52-29 margin.

The Pirates will host Delphian Tuesday at 6 p.m. in the team’s Northwest League opener, followed by a battle against City Christian next Thursday at 6 p.m.

The Pirates will close out their four-game homestand when they play Vernonia Dec. 17 at 2:30 p.m.

The team will have a little bit of a Christmas break when they wait for 10 days before traveling to Jewell for a non-league game at 2:30 p.m.

The Warrenton Warriors (2-1) will be taking a short road trip to Knappa Thursday, then heads to Rockaway Beach Friday for a 7:30 contest with the Pirates.

The Pirates will open the Northwest League season Tuesday when they host Delphian at 7:30 p.m. The team will finish off a four-game home stand with City Christian arriving Dec. 15 and Vernonia coming to the beach at 4 p.m. Dec. 17 (Saturday).
