    The Pirate Football Team (7?2), 2009 Mid?Southern Conference Champions for the third consecutive year, suffered a disappointing setback at Lawrenceburg last Friday to end an otherwise very successful regular season.
    Lawrenceburg prevailed on a cold and rainy night 20?14. The Pirates scored the first points of the game in the second stanza when senior Michael Baines carried the ball 93 yards from the line of scrimmage to score and give the Pirates a 6?0 lead.  The Pirates scored again in the fourth when freshman quarterback Gage Brafford connected in the air with senior Jordan Williams for a 50 yard touchdown strike. Senior Michael Baines added a two point conversion run to reduce the Pirates deficit to six; 20?14, with a little more than four minutes remaining.
    The Pirates however were unable to score again and dropped the contest with eyes now set on the state tournament.

    Pirate fans were sure this would be an easy win but Silver Creek fans knew better.   
    After several days of showers, the night was the perfect night for football.
    Scott Grether ran in for the first Dragon touchdown and senior, Chad Marejka ran in for the two point conversion.
    Anthony Everage scored the second touchdown bringing the score to 14-0. Dragons were unsuccessful on their second attempt at a two point conversion.
    The Dragon defense played really tough. Junior Brady Isenberg and senior, Anthony Everage really stepped up and once again had a big night on the defensive line.
    Charlestown went to the air and caught Silver Creek in a blitz and made the Dragons pay said Dragon defensive coordinator, Kevin Brooks.
    “They really executed on some big plays in the air. Charlestown scored with about a minute left in the game to tie it up at 14-14. The Pirates then attempted a two point conversion but the Dragons defense stopped them and the two teams went into overtime,” he added.
    In the second overtime, Grant Farly scored a touchdown on the quarterback sneak and Silver Creek won 20-14.
    “The competition between Charlestown and Silver Creek is sure to become a great rivalry in years to come,” Coach Brooks concluded.

    The Silver Creek Dragons traveled west to Ramsey to take on North Harrison last Monday, September 28. A strong cold front moved into the area to make it a perfect night to watch a football game. The temperature might have been cold but the Dragons were hot.
    Silver Creek started their first drive by pounding the ball off tackle and in the middle of the Cougars defense. Grant Farley scored from 12 yards out on a quarterback option. The Dragons made a two point conversion by a pass from Anthony Everage to Grant Farley.  Silver Creek then recovered an on-side kick and seven plays later fullback Scott Grether went in for the score. The attempt at a two point conversion was unsuccessful. With 5:32 left in the first quarter, the score was 14-0.
    The Dragon defense forced the Cougars to punt and Silver Creek’s offense marched down the field behind juniors Grether and tailback Blake Evans. Once inside the red zone, quarterback Grant Farley scored his second touchdown of the night.
