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."
The Pirate defense was led by Daniel Borchers and Kyle Yearous with 10 tackles apiece, and Austin Todd, with nine, Dean and Ben Andresen with eight apiece, contributed greatly also.
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."
