In their first road game of the season, the Pirates led by a point after a quarter before opening up a 12-point halftime lead. The Hall pulled ahead by as many as 21 in the third quarter and led by double-digits throughout the second half. Jones’ 14 rebounds were part of a 50-32 edge on the glass for the Pirates

Head coach Tony Bozzella was thrilled with his teams conditioning.

“My staff deserves a lot of credit for the win. The girls were in great condition, playing four games in eight days is tough but we’ve been able to fight through.”

The Pirates shot 42.9 percent from 3-point range, led by a 4-for-4 performance from Jones and a 5-for-9 effort from Richardson-Smith, who had four in the second quarter.
