The Sneads Pirates were eager to take the field last Friday night looking for win number four and three in a row.  Since dropping a weather-shortened contested game on the last day of August, September has been a month to remember for the Pirates.  They handed Bozeman a 27-7 loss, before heading to Franklin County, defeating them 38-20. Friday night was their biggest win of the season as they handed the Wewa Gators a 45-6 loss.  The win moves them to 3-1 in district play and 4-1 overall. 

Sneads put up 13 first-quarter points before topping that with 14 in the second quarter, taking a 27-0 lead into the locker room at the half. 

Sneads continued the route in the third quarter with 12 points going on the board and upping the deficit to 39-0.  Both teams put six on the board in the fourth quarter, with Sneads taking the landslide victory.  

Colton Mercer was two-for-two passing for 60 yards and a touchdown. Courtavious Garrett had one reception, a 51-yard pass from Mercer for a touchdown with Jay-Nathan Hayes adding a nine-yard reception.

Calvin Stringer was the catalyst Friday night, accumulating 246 yards on the ground on 13 carries and three touchdowns. Seth Scott also had a banner night with 125 yards on four carries and two touchdowns.  Garrett had four carries for 16 yards, with Alonzo Hill with one carry for nine yards. Trent Smith had seven yards on one carry while Hayes had four yards on one carry.  

Defensively, Ryan Cloud had four assisted tackles and one solo tackle, while Zach Thomas had one assisted and one solo tackle. Dillon Arnold had one solo tackle. 

Following the game, coach Bill Thomas was more than happy with this team’s level of play, “The offensive and defensive line played great, opened holes for our runners and defense just shut down Wewa’s offense. Very proud of this team.”  

They will look to make it four wins in a row and five on the season when they host Lighthouse Christian Friday night. Kick off is scheduled for 7 p.m.
