The Pirates (6-1, 3-1) are off to one of the best starts in school history. You would have to look back to the 1999 football team to find a 6-1 start through the first seven weeks of a season. Making quick work of the Tiger’s (0-7, 0-4), Cedarville rushed out to a quick 35-0 lead early in the second quarter then cruised to finish the game 35-14. The win puts the Pirates in a three-way tie for second place in their conference.
This night would be one for the record books and would once again belong to the Pirate duo who have been tearing up the gridiron so far this season. Both Pirate running backs, Kelin Mitchell and Darryl Kattich, broke the 1,000-yard mark on the same night in week 7. Mitchell had 7 carries for 190 yards with 2 touchdowns on the night getting him to 1,139 rushing yards so far this season. Kattich had 9 carries for 163 yards with 3 touchdowns on the night getting him to 1,039 yards so far this season. Nine different backs carried the ball 41 times totaling 490 yards on the night for the Pirates.
The Pirates will host Greenland (3-4, 1-3) for Senior Night this Friday, October 25 at 7:00 p.m.
