Wirick helps Raiders control Pirates

A relentless and aggressive Benjamin Logan defense made sure host Riverside could not get in rhythm Tuesday.

The Raiders caused havoc for four quarters en route to a 47-23 victory over the host Pirates in a non-league girls basketball game.

“I’m pleased with the win,” said Ben Logan head coach Donnie Sosby. “Defensively, we played man all night. We cut down on their penetration and caused some turnovers. If we play that way, then we can win ball games.”

Turnovers continue to be a problem for Riverside (0-8) and a scrappy Ben Logan defense helped force 32 by the Pirates on Tuesday.

“That is a huge issue for us,” said RHS head coach Jeremy Allen. “We had 32 turnovers playing against a half-court defense. It’s hard to win many games with 32 turnovers.”
