Pirates cruise past Lions for 46-7 Homecoming victory
The Salem Lions traveled to Charlestown last Friday night to try to spoil the Pirates' homecoming. Salem took the opening possession and found the scoreboard first but it would prove to be the only visitors' score on the evening in the Bone Yard. The Pirates would take control of the ballgame and answer the early Salem lead with a touchdown of their own. After Charlestown took the early lead, 12-7, the Pirates would never relinquish the lead as the Pirate defense denied any Lion trying to find the endzone after the opening possession. Charlestown took the 46-7 Mid Southern Conference victory. The Pirates now lead the series with the Lions, 22-21.
Last Friday night the Pirates of Charlestown were pumped and ready for a battle on the grid iron with the visiting Panthers of Corydon Central. Charlestown needed to knock off the undefeated No. 5 in the Coaches Poll and No. 4 in the Media Poll Panthers for a chance of claiming a share of the 2011 Mid Southern Conference title.
