Both Green River Pirate basketball squads made the road trip to Tabiona on Tuesday, for the boys team it gave them a chance to find their first win of the season, and the girls were looking for their first win as well coming off back-to-back losses to Bryce Valley and Piute. The boys suffered a 65-34 loss and the Lady Pirates lost their contest as well 58-29.

Abigail Erwin would lead the Pirates with 14 and Jenilee Andrus dropped in 11.
The boys then took to the court and had the same luck against Tabiona as the girls did, scoring just 18 in the first half. The third quarter was were the Tigers did the most damage outscoring the Pirates 22-9. Green River added another seven in the fourth quarter but he game was well in hand for the Tabiona victory.
