Game Summary:

This past Thursday the Pirates took on the Warriors in the Battle of Wagar Road. The first quarter was a stalemate both teams making big defensive stops and turning the ball over. Scores by Pirates Jack Corrigan, 78 yard TD pass, and Matt Popovich, 33 yard TD pass, put the Pirates up 13-0 going into the half. Coming out we decided to focus on the running game which led to 3 rushing TD’s by sophomore Dameon Crawford. Adding to the scoring were Evan Nugent, 71 yd TD reception and Brendan Connors a 29 yd TD reception. We had a pretty balanced offensive attack and accumulated over 500 yards of total offensive and 7 TDs.

Defensively after a sluggish start, the Pirate defense came on strong limiting Fairview to only 4 1st downs, 1 completed pass, and under 200 yards of total offense. Evan Nugent added a INT and Jack Corrigan blocked a punt which led to a safety. A final score of 49-0 was the largest margin of victory for the Pirates against Fairview in that past decade.
