Kooskia The Pirates of Cottonwood made the trip into the valley last Friday night, Oct. 4, but the host quickly found itself in a deep hole. Prairie scored first on a long run by Lucas Arnzen which touched off a series of big plays culminating in a 48-0 Pirates win.
Prairie scored five times on runs of 25 yards or more: Arnzen’s 78-yarder, Jake Bruner’s 56-yarder, Arnzen’s 25-yarder, Hunter McWilliams’ 27-yarder, Bruner’s 3-yarder and McWilliams’ 54-yarder.
Along with a handful of big pass plays — Bruner averaged more than 30 yards per completion — the Pirates totaled nearly 500 yards of offense.
The Pirates also scored on short runs by Bruner and Calvin Hinkelman.
Up next, Prairie (4-1, 3-0) will play at Kamiah on Oct. 11. CV (3-2, 0-2) will host Whitepine League favorite Troy that same night.
Kamiah 50, Potlatch 0
