Charlestown has gotten the best of Corydon over their 11 football meetings, 9-2 counting Friday nights win; however sometimes the vacuum of outside forces ruins a good rivalry game, like Friday night at Corydon. The Pirates were penalized 11 times, totaling 125 yards; while Corydon was penalized eight times for 62 yards, but no one had control of the game-especially the officials. Words wouldn’t justify the impact the officials had upon the “game” so enough about the ugly-here’s the good and the bad.
In the afternoon hours of Friday, September 26, troopers from the Indiana State Police Post at Sellersburg executed a search warrant at a residence located on Blue Ridge Road in Charlestown. During the execution of the search warrant troopers located Methamphetamine and other drug related paraphernalia.
Pirates take 46-20 Homecoming win over rival Silver Creek
by MICHAEL ROSS
The stands were overflowing on both sides of Dutch Reis Field last Friday night as the Pirates celebrated their 2014 Homecoming by hosting Mid Southern Conference rival Silver Creek.
The teams prepared all week for what both sides knew would be a great game. The Dragons and Pirates battled at The Bone Yard as Charlestown opened with a 21-0 advantage before Silver Creek clawed back. The Dragons pulled within seven early in the last quarter before Charlestown’s Tate Boley returned a 75 yard punt for the momentum shift. The Pirates took the 46-20 Mid Southern Conference win to push their record to 4-1.
With a game looming this Friday against Charlestown, Silver Creek Head Coach Jason Hawkins wasn’t concerned about his team looking past the Eastern Musketeers last week. ‘We know we are not a dominant football team yet and have to come ready to play each and every week,” Hawkins said.
