1/2 Grade Pirates Take No Prisoners In Victory Over Mansfield


On Saturday, September, 19, the Cedarville 1st and 2nd Grade Little League Pirates traveled to Mansfield in an attempt to smash and grab the victory jackpot. With a ship full of first-year players along with their already been-there-done-that players, the Little Pirates had one thing and one thing only on their minds. To sink the opposition.

Looking for a big play right out of the gate, Cedarville set up a 10-yard curl route to their wide receiver Grayson Kattich. Add in a perfect snap and QB Carver Seratt hit Kattich in the numbers and the race was on for a 70-yard TD on the very first play of the game. “That was a big, big play and I think that gave us a lot of confidence and momentum going forward,” explained head coach Aaron Seratt. Mansfield struck back attempting to hit paydirt but the Pirates were able to keep them out of the end zone. Titus Nipp plowed down a Mansfield player with a big open field tackle stopping a Tiger touchdown.

Earning huge tackles by the entire Cedarville defense right after coming out of halftime, Carver Seratt marched the ball downfield scoring a TD off the long run. Mansfield responded back with their own TD with 7 minutes left in the second half. But Cedarville was able to hold the Tigers on the 2 point conversion obtaining a slim lead. The play of the game was with 4 minutes left on the clock. Carver Seratt took the ball up the left side of the field on 3rd and 13. Like a slow-motion scene on the movie scene, Seratt was running with his eye on the endzone. Mansfield players coming at him right and left but never successfully making contact due to his bodyguards Hunter Conn and Titus Nipp blocking every attempt.

After Seratt took it to the house, Grayson Kattich punched the 2 point conversion into the end zone to take a 10 point lead. The Pirates defense sealed the game off by holding Mansfield out of the end zone until time ran out. The Cedarville Pirates sailed away with a final score of 24-14 against the Mansfield Tigers. “We came up big on both sides of the ball. We were able to win the battle in open space and in little league that’s a big deal. Very proud of our little Pirates team. They played with a lot of heart and determination! I can’t wait to see how much they learn and how they come out this season!”
