The Pirates loss last week against Amity didn't seem to have an effect on the morale of the team. From the minute the opening whistle was blown, the Pirates dominated the gridiron. They scored early. They scored often, going into the half with a 32-0 lead.
The Gaston Greyhounds weren't able to break through the tough defense of the Pirates, and they struggled even more against the offense. The second half saw some success for the Greyhounds as they were able to capitalize on offensive mistakes by the Pirates, but they were never able to follow through and score. The Pirates were able to bring the lead to 48-0 in the second half. This is where it would stand at the end of game. The Pirates are now 2-1.
The Pirates will face league and county rival Nestucca Bobcats next week. The Bobcats, after having a winless season in 2017, has pulled themselves up and won two out of three games this season. The game between two will be played at Nestucca High School on Friday September 21st at 7pm.
