The Pirates (4-1, 1-1) wasted no time Friday night showing why they have two of the top running backs in the 3A Conference by scoring on their open drive of the game. Darryl Kattich scored the Pirates first two touchdowns in the first half to jump out to a 12-0 lead. Kattich had 21 carries for 104 yards and two touchdowns on the night.

The Tigers (2-3, 2-0) were held on their first two drives of the night and were forced to punt, but that did not last long as the Tigers would score on their next two possessions to take the lead at the half 13-12. The two teams would score on their opening drives of the second half to make the score 20-18. The Pirate quarterback, Calloway Henslee (3 carries, 41 yards) would slip out around the end for what would be the Pirate’s last score of the evening.

Following another Tiger touchdown, to take the score to 27-18, the Tiger’s would execute an onside kick that would take crucial time off the clock, keeping the Pirate offense at bay. The Tigers were able to keep Junior Kelin Mitchell out of the end zone the entire contest but Mitchell was able to grind out 174 yards on 23 carries.

Friday night’s loss put the Pirates in a four-way tie for third place in the conference. This Friday night will be Homecoming for the Pirates as they host the Paris Eagles (2-3, 0-2) at 7:00pm.
