DAMASCUS — The Perrydale boys basketball team lost a thriller to Damascus Christian, falling 36-35 on Monday. “Our kids played their hearts out,” Pirates coach Mike Lowry said. “We had our chances down the stretch, but could not capitalize on turnovers. We need to be able to attack the basket more.” Chad Price scored a game-high 18 points, while Troy Trembly added nine points and Haylen Janesofsky four points. But the Pirates struggled to get to the free-throw line. “Only shooting five free throws just isn’t going to get it done” Lowry said. Despite the loss, Lowry said Perrydale showed numerous positive steps on offense, especially in ball movement. “Overall, I couldn’t have asked for a better effort from our team,” Lowry said. Perrydale plays at Monroe on Saturday and Central Linn on Tuesday. The Pirates return home on Jan. 9, when the team hosts Regis at 7 p.m.December 31, 2014 11 a.m. read more..
