The Bunceton/Prairie Home girls basketball team had a rough start against the Chamois Pirates and that proved to be the difference in a 46-36 loss last Friday in Bunceton.

Bunceton coach Dustin Ray said a combination of poor shooting, poor comunication on defense and a lack of emotional strength put us on the losing side of this battle. “Chamois came out with a game plan and executed very well while we did not,” Ray said. “This was a tough loss against a district opponent, but we’ll bounce back just like we always do.”
