COTTONWOOD Nine Prairie rushing touchdowns proved more than enough in the end, but during the early phases of the Pirates’ 78-32 win Friday night, Oct. 6, the Trojans led 6-0 and 12-8.
After Jake Stubbers put the Pirates ahead with a 41-yard touchdown run, Troy kept it interesting with a 58-yard passing touchdown.
Prairie scored the next five touchdowns, effectively ending the contest with about four minutes left in the third quarter. Caleb McWilliams ran for 184 yards and three scores on 12 attempts, and Stubbers ran for 146 and three scores on 18 attempts.
Coming — Prairie (5-1, 3-1 Whitepine League) is scheduled to visit Wallace (3-3, 2-2 WPL) at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 14. After that, the Pirates have a home game against Potlatch and a road trip to Lapwai remaining on their regular season schedule.
