Pirates roll 54-14 over Westwood

Monday, September 25, 2006

SLOAN - The Galva-Holstein Pirates continued to roll through an unbeaten season Friday night as they beat the Westwood Rebels in Class A District action at Sloan Friday night.

Taking a 21-0 lead in the first quarter, and up 34-0 at the half, Coach Brad Knight's team piled up 338 yards on the ground, as they moved towards a big showdown Friday night at Holstein against Woodbury Central, also unbeaten.

Coach Knight said "We were the dominant physical team Friday night. Even minus a key starter (running back Aaron Drury), we played well. Offensively, we blocked well, defensively ,we tackled well. There are still some things we can get better at - we need a good week."

Looking to this week's game, Coach Knight said "Woodbury Central is big and physical. They are well-coached, and have very good athletes. We will have our hands full, and (it will be) a great challenge for us at this point in time in the season."
