Pearl River senior Kevin Degnan scored nine of his 22 points in the fourth quarter as the Pirates pulled away for a 46-37 victory at Nanuet Friday.
Pearl River Head Coach Jerry Houston said Degnan, "Carried us to the win," but also pointed out the strong defensive play by senior guard Brian Chiarello in the second half as an important part of the victory. Jack Byrnes was the only other Pirate to score in double digits with 11 in the low-scoring contest, which was tied at 33-33 after three quarters.
Mike Mulligan led Nanuet with 13 points. Aedan Lombardo scored nine in the first quarter, but none the rest of the game.
Pearl River (8-4) will play at home 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 21 against Albertus Magnus.
