The Pirates skin the Rabbits

By ELLIS KNOX

What a game! The Pirates played an excellent game against the Atlanta Rabbits. The Rabbits drove down after receiving the first kick-off and scored first, and led 7-0 with less than eight minutes to go in the first quarter.

Pitt came right back and tied the game seven all with three minutes to go in the first quarter on Quarterback Jaylon Jimmerson’s 33 yard pass to waiting hands of junior wide receiver Keontae Burns, in spite of the defender. The Pirate defense solidified and that was the end of any Atlanta offensive challenge in the first half.

Pirates now two and two

By ELLIS KNOX

With one non-district game left before the season break and district play starts the Pirates are now two and two as the Pirates fall to Paris last Friday night in their homecoming game. From the sidelines it appeared the team just did not focus in the first half and lost that part of the game 28 to 0.

The Pirates have always been a second quarter team, but they did not gather themselves until the middle of the third when everything suddenly began to click. The team outscored the Wildcats 20 to 10, but that first half loss just could not be overcome.

At least there was one bright spot last weekend, number one Carthage beat number two Gilmer, 48 to 28.

Sometimes a loss in front of the home crowd is a good thing. There could have been a lot of reason for that loss of focus on a homecoming week, but that doesn’t matter if they get back into the groove.
