Well...Once again, the outcome wasn't exactly what we were hoping for (41-39), BUT did you SEE the game??!!! Did you listen to the game?? It was an intense nail biter that ended with Powell behind WC by only 2 pts and 40 seconds left on the clock.
Last week Coach Brewer promised our listening audience 2 things: EXECUTION and EFFORT. Well, the Pirates delivered.
The WC Comets won the toss and elected to give the Pirates the first shot at scoring. They had to punt on their first drive, but the Pirates' defense held them and they had to punt back to us and thus began the back and forth that continued until time ran out on the clock.
Nathan Skidmore shone as the swashbuckling captain of the Pirate ship against the Comets. Nate had 29 rushes for 229 yards and 5 touchdowns. Yep, you read that right folks, 5 touchdowns.
Ryan Vanover had 11 rushes for 154 yards. He had 180 yards of total offense and 2 catches for 27 yards.
Austin Trent had 6 rushes for 86 yards and 1 touchdown.
Our leading tacklers were Jon Brooks with 7 tackles and Nate Skidmore with 8!
To say this game was fun to watch is an understatement. We have lots to look forward to in the future!
