Shots were not falling and points were not adding up for the Pirates as they played host to the Kenton Wildcats on Tuesday night, Jan. 27, but a strong defensive effort from the home team helped tame a physical Wildcats offense and helped lead BHS to a low scoring, 43-37 victory.
The win pushed the Pirates record to 11-3 (1-2 NWC) and helped them extend their record to 3-1 against Western Buckeye League opponents this season.
