CRYSTAL RIVER — The Crystal River girls basketball team eventually pulled away from Citrus on Friday night at home, but the Hurricanes stuck around for much of the night, despite only having five players dressed.

The Pirates (9-7) wore the Hurricanes down in the second half and snapped a four-game losing skid with a 73-41 triumph. Citrus (3-10) had a two-game winning streak halted.
