Pirate Football traveled to Elm Street in Brownstown to open 2009 Mid Southern Conference play against the rival Braves.
Elm Street ended up being a nightmare for the host team instead of the visitors, as the Pirates' defense dug in and stopped the Braves' high?powered offense for a 35?14 victory.
The game was ended due to thunderstorms with 10:46 left in the game.
The game began with each team marching the field twice and scoring touchdowns, including an 85 yard kick?off return by senior Michael Baines and a six yard pass from freshman Aaron Daniel to senior Jake Cook.
With the score tied at 14?14 starting the second quarter, the Pirates' defense took control, and their offense kept on digging. The Pirates' Aaron Daniel intercepted a Brave pass on the Braves' next drive then countered with a six play 51 yard drive that ended with Michael Baines rushing 10 yards for another touchdown with 2:18 left in the first half (21?14).
The Pirates opened the second half with a 12 play 62 yard drive that ended with an Aaron Daniel one yard run for a touchdown with 5:42 left in the third quarter.
The Braves fumbled the ball on their next possession when the Pirates marched 72 yards in 10 plays ending with a Ethan Bowen 21 yard touchdown run to make the score 35?14 in the middle of the fourth quarter.
Aaron Daniel was named the Tumbletown Offensive Player of the game while Logan McCutchen was named Tumbletown Defensive Player of the game by Pirate Pride Sports Broadcasting.
The Pirates return home to the Bone Yard this Friday night to host county arch?rival Clarksville in another important MSC match?up. Kick-off is set for 7 p.m.
