(Editor’s note: The Pirates traveled to Buford on Monday to face the Wolves in the semi finals. As of presstime, the Pirates lost to Buford late Monday and were eliminated from the playoffs. However, the community is very proud of the efforts of the players, coaches and supporters for all their hard work during this historic season. Congratulations to you all.)
