Jr Pirates Plunder Rebels Gold

The Jr High Cedarville Pirates are anything but ordinary when they step onto the football field. Recently hosting the JC Westside Rebels, the Pirates wasted no time with letting the Rebels know whose house they were in. Acquiring several long runs, interceptions, and a punt block that resulted in multiple touchdowns, the game ended with the scoreboard reading 52-0 Cedarville. “We still have things to work on, like our alignments and assignments,” said Head Coach, Max Washausen. “The biggest strengths of the defense are aggressiveness and our ability to create turnovers.”

Hayden Morton and Colton Arnold showed off their speedy legwork resulting in Cedarville touchdowns. Lane Hightower hurled a pass to his twin brother Levi Hightower gaining the Pirates another touchdown for the board. “What I like about this group is they have the talent. But they still have a lot to learn about the game of football which means they have the ability to improve each week.”

For their next match, the Jr High Pirates will head to Mountainburg to take on the Dragons on September 5 at 7 p.m. “This upcoming week when we play against Mountainburg, I don’t think I have to give my team many motivational speeches. The team is eager to get on the field and play the Dragons.”
