Charlestown Pirates

CHARLESTOWN — Skylar Cochran tallied 20 points to lead Charlestown to a 57-45 victory over visiting Madison in the season-opener for both Saturday night. 

"It was a great win," Pirates coach Scott Matthews said. "I thought Skylar Cochran played an excellent game." 

Charlestown led 24-22 at halftime before outscoring the Cubs 19-10 in the third quarter thanks, in part, to its pressure defense. 

Freshmen Kennedy Coleman (13) and Maddie Nipper (nine) combined for 22 points while Demaria King added eight points for the Pirates.  

Cochran and King also combined to help slow down Madison senior standout Jade Nutley, who finished with a game-high 21 points.  

The only problem for the Pirates was free throw shooting. They were 14 for 28 from the foul line.

Charlestown (1-0) visits North Harrison next Saturday night.
