Less than 24 hours after grinding out a victory against Comanche, the Plainview Indians were greeted with a cold reception, and cold shooting against the Byng Pirates Saturday.

A low shooting percentage combined with a Pirates team that seemed like it couldn’t miss a shot proved to be a recipe for disaster as the Indians were defeated 59-44 at the Plainview Activity Center.

The defeat was only the second at home this season for Plainview, who fell to 5-2 and saw its two-game winning streak snapped.

Plainview took an early 2-0 in the first quarter, but would never be in front again.

Byng took control with a 5-0 run to gain the advantage, before finishing off the opening quarter with a 7-4 run to lead 12-6 going to the second.

The Indians managed to get to within four points at 15-11 with 6:29 left in the first half, but the Pirates had other ideas.

Byng would finish out the first half on a 17-10 run to take a 32-21 lead into the locker room for halftime.

The closest Plainview got to the Pirates in the second half was seven points 1:03 into the third at 32-25.

Plainview would only manage nine points in the third quarter, as the Pirates held a 44-30 advantage.

Byng edged Plainview in scoring for the fourth quarter at 15-14.

Devin Jones led the Indians with 16 points followed by Taylon Chambers with seven points.

Blake Nowell, Brock Parham and Lane Ross each added five points in the game.

Plainview is off until after the new year, when the Indians will take on Madill at home on Jan. 8.
