PERRYDALE — Perrydale’s boys basketball team earned a pair of Casco League victories last week. The Pirates defeated Willamette Valley Christian 59-47 on Jan. 3 and Jewell 50-28 on Thursday.
“Willamette is one of the top three or four opponents in our league,” coach Brian Domes said. “I know we came out and won the first and second quarter, but couldn’t quite pull away in the second half.”
Domes was pleased with several individual performances against Willamette Valley Christian.
“We had a couple kids that came out and really helped on the scoring and rebounding side,” Domes said. “Jacob Pope had a good game in both categories. He was the high scorer for the game. Cooper Butler was pretty solid defensively. We put him on Willamette’s best scorer who is a pretty good athlete.”
Against Jewell, Domes said the goal was to get as many of his players time on the court as possible.
The Pirates’ game against Damascus Christian, on Saturday was canceled due to weather.
