Green River then defeated a team from Grand High School 45-40 to see their record go to 4-1 as the young Pirates see good things happening in their future.

Against the Vikings, Green river outscored their opponent 21-9 in the second quarter and 13-2 in the third quarter before everyone got to play and score and East Carbon rallied for a 14-6 advantage in the last quarter.
