Pirates hold on, beat Carey boys 61-59

Hot game at Arco

Butte County’s Pirates and Carey Panthers heated up the Arco gym with a 15 3-pointers and 120 points during Tuesday’s back-and-forth boys’ basketball battle ultimately won by the host Pirates 61-59.

The 2A Butte County team (5-1) held off a rally by the 1A Division 2 Panthers and won the game at the free throw line. The Pirates (8 3-pointers) shot 13-for-18 at the stripe while Carey was 6-for-7 at the line.

Carey sophomore guard Nate Adamson (15.0 ppg) had his best game with 28 points including three 3-pointers as the Panthers charged back from a 46-38 fourth-quarter deficit with a season-best 21 points in the fourth quarter.

It was a good challenge for the defending State 1A Division 2 tournament runner-up squad from Carey against a Butte County program that went to last winter’s State 2A meet.

Other Carey scorers were Poncho Gamino 13 points, Sheldon Hansen 9 including three 3s, Jordan Dilworth 7 and Gunner Thompson 2.  Leading the Pirates with 19 points including three 3-pointers was junior guard Kyle Isham.

Carey (2-3) ends its pre-holiday slate with three home games—today against Castleford, Tuesday with Shoshone and Friday, Dec. 21 with Valley. Butte County added another home win Wednesday 69-41 over Ririe.
