The Cedarville Jr High Pirates had a rough go at it in last Thursday’s face-off with the Booneville Bearcats. Ending with a score of 24-8 Bearcats, the Pirates will regroup and be ready for this weeks’ upcoming game against Lamar. The Jr High team is now sitting with a 3-1 overall season record.
During last weeks game, it was really the second quarter that did the Pirates in. Booneville ending up scoring all 24 of their points in that quarter making it hard for the Pirates to come back for the win. Colton Arnold scored the lone touchdown for Cedarville with a massive 60 yard run late in the fourth quarter. Matthew Holthusen added the two-point conversion.
“We lost our first Jr High conference game since 2016,” explained Coach Max Washausen. “We have to be able to match the aggressiveness of a solid opponent like Booneville. We play in a tough league and we will have another tough opponent in Lamar this upcoming Thursday.” Cedarville will stay home to face Lamar on September 26 with a start time of 7:00 p.m.
