The Pirates opened with a 25-22 victory over the visiting Loggers, then followed that with a 26-24 win.

The final win was a narrow 29-27 victory.

The team had beaten Faith Bible on the road Tuesday, also by a 3-0

sweep. The Pirates won 25-14, 25-15 and 25-22. The Pirates had lost a

3-2 decision Oct. 3 in Rockaway Beach.

The two wins improved the Pirates league record to 2-8 in league play

and moved them a half-game ahead of City Christian in the league

standings. The Pirates are 4-12 for the season and will host Columbia

Christian Thursday.

The Pirates will travel to Delphian Saturday to close out the regular

season in a 5 p.m. contest.
