Sports News: In our last few football games ending the season, the Pirates went to Hazard where they played the Hazard “Bulldogs”. This was expected to be one of the Pirates’ hardest games. But the “Bulldogs” had lost their bit or something. The Pirates came home with the victory, defeating them by a score of 68 to 14.

The next weekend the Pirates went to Paintsville where they were to play the Paintsville Tigers. This was to be the game of the season for both teams. Neither team had lost a game the whole season and now both met on the same field to fight the battle. This was the game which determined the Class A Championship. The Pirates started out with the first six points, but the Tigers came back with one to match. These two teams were really a good match. The Tigers outfought the Pirates, defeating them by a heartbreaking score of 13 to 12. One of the Pirates was hurt in the first quarter of the game. Maybe this could have been a factor causing the difference between winning and losing, but we’ll never know for sure.

Friday, November 4, the Pirates went to Grundy to play that team. Grundy scored first and made the extra point. Some plays later the Pirates scored, but missed the extra point. The score at the half was 7-6 in favor of Grundy.

Next half, the Pirates scored, but missed their extra point, making the score 12-7. Some plays later, Grundy scored. That was the way the game ended, we lost by a heartbreaking score of 13-12.
