Last night the 8th grade football team defeated the Black River Pirates 12 – 0.
It was a defensive battle from the start. Outstanding plays were made by the Falcons defensive line, putting constant pressure on the Black River quarterback and making tackles in the backfield. Jacob McDonald had two interceptions and Logan Galligan recovered a fumble caused by Liam Varndell.
The Falcon offense reached the endzone twice. Jim Aunspaw connected with Josh Kovach on a pass for a touchdown. Aunspaw also completed big passes to Tristan Born and Logan Urban. Timmy Phillips and Nate Duke made key runs to extend Falcon drives and Phillips rushed for a touchdown to secure the win.
The 8th grade football team will face the Brookside Cardinals next week.
