West Side’s football team traveled to Rich County on Friday to take on the Rebels. After a poor beginning, the Pirates pulled out a 41-28 come-from behind victory.
During the first quarter the Rebels put up the first score. In the beginning of the second, the story was much the same as Rich scored two more touchdowns, making the score 20-0 for the Rebels.
But then West Side finally decided to fight back. Jantz Ebanez was the first to score and the extra point by Coby Roholt was good. Then the Pirates scored on a pass play to Josh King, followed by a pat, bringing the score to 20-14.
“The difference in the second quarter and the rest of the game was the team finally played with a sense of urgency,” said coach Tyson Moser. “I am really proud of the kids for battling back. They easily could have quit when they were down, but they didn’t. They came together as a team. It wasn’t one or two kids. They all decided they weren’t going to lie down and quit.”
After the half, the Pirates came onto the field with a more momentum. After four solid first downs, West Side was able to add another touchdown, this time by Trevor Montes. After the kick, the score was 21-20 and they never looked back.
