The season has been really rough for the Powell County Pirates. Despite having nine seniors on the roster, they are relatively an inexperienced team. The season has been a way of getting ready for the postseason and a run for a district title, maybe a region run as well.
But along the way there have been a few hard knocks. That was evident last week as Powell went 1-3 in a tough four game schedule.
Powell traveled to Burgin last Monday and held on for a 51-49 win. They were led by Luke Pasley with 17 points. Then on Tuesday Powell traveled to Campton to take on he Wolfe County Wolves. Wolfe, one of the top teams in the 14th Region, grabbed their second win of the season over Powell, 71-44. Powell was led by Colby Cook with 23 points and six rebounds.
The Pirates returned home to play Morgan County on Senior Night last Friday. Powell stayed close for most of the first half. But the Cougars took advantage of numerous Pirate turnovers and cool shooting in the second half. The Cougars won the game, 55-42. Cook led the way again, this time with 13 points. Chandler Congleton came off the bench to toss in nine points.
On Saturday Powell traveled to Prestonsburg. The Pirates tried to stay close, but the Blackcats took off and won the game easily, 66-46.
Powell’s record stands at 5-18.
The Pirates are scheduled to travel to Williamstown this past Monday. They will return home on Wednesday to play Lee County before ending the regular season against Richmond Model on the road.
