Pirates strike first but can’t keep up with Moguls


Petrolia fans saw a glimmer of hope In the first quarter of Friday when a 60-yard touchdown pass from Dane Williams to Jake Edgemon put the Pirates on top of the Munday Moguls, 6-0.

But the Petrolia lead didn’t last long as the Moguls offense exploded for a 64-6 win.

Munday scored 34 points in the first quarter on runs of 39, 50, 60 and 65 yards, and a 17-yard pass. The Moguls scored on an 18-yard pass and a seven-yard run for a 14-point second quarter. In the third, Munday scored on a 30-yard run, then returned a blocked Pirate punt 15 yards for a touchdown. The Moguls’ final two points came on a safety.

Munday finished with 341 yards rushing on 38 carries, and completed four of four pass attempts for 120 yards. The Mogul defense allowed only one first down from Petrolia, while claiming three Petrolia fumbles and two interceptions.

The Pirates finished with 10 yards on 22 carries, and completed five of eight pass attempts for 85 yards. Edgemon led the Pirate receiver corps with three catches for 64 yards. Williams led the team in rushing with six carries for 21 yards, and passed for four completions on seven throws.

Two games remain on Petrolia’s schedule. The Pirates travel to Haskell on Friday, Oct. 31, and host Electra on Nov. 7. Both games are set for 7 p.m.
