DAYTON – The West Side Pirate Football team defeated district rival Malad on Friday 33-12.
Before the game started the West Side studentbody ran onto the field carrying flags. They had prepared a patriotic flash mob that also supported the football team.
In the opening quarter the first big play of the night was carried out by McCoy Roberts as he ran the ball 20 yards downfield. Keeping the momentum going, Jon O’Brien ran in a touchdown, on a 70-yard scamper. The kick was good and the Pirates would score two more times before the quarter was over.
Trevor Montes ran in a touchdown with a minute left and Dillyn Morgan added a 40-yard run to score another touchdown with 30 seconds left. In the second quarter, the Pirates kept up the momentum, leaving the halftime score, 33–0.
But in the second half the team coasted and let Malad back in it. The Dragons scored during the third quarter leaving the score at 33–6. In the fourth, Malad scored another TD. The final score was 33–12.
Head coach Tyson Moser said he was not too happy with the way the team played during the second half. Moser said he just didn’t know what happened in the second.
“In the first half we played excellent ball. But in the second the wheels came off. We just didn’t play. We got our butts kicked. If our kids want to accomplish the goals they have set for themselves, then they’ve got to play four quarters of football.
O’Brien finished the night with 203 yards on 15 carries. The offense ended with 370 yards of offense. The win puts the Pirates at 1-0 in district play. This week they play Aberdeen in an away game at 7 p.m. on Friday.
