Improves to 5-2 overall
The Boonville Pirates JV football team picked up where the varsity team left off Monday night on the road against the Eldon Mustangs.
After throttling the Mustangs last Friday in Boonville 34-21, the Pirates JV took their turn on Monday by putting up 40 first half points for a 40-7 victory.
Boonville Pirates JV coach Seth Brimer said the boys came out from the very start and establish the run game early.
“I think that really set the tone for the rest of the game,” Brimer said. “Defensively our defensive line was tremendous. It’s nice when our linebackers are getting upset because they can’t get any tackles because our line was making a lot of the players. Offensively we spread the ball around a lot and really everyone contributed. This was a good team win for us. We can’t wait to get ready for Hallsville this week.”
The Pirates definitely left a statement against Eldon by scoring 27 unanswered points in the first quarter. And then to top that, Boonville also put up 13 points in the first half to lead the Mustangs 40-0 at the half.
Eldon’s lone score of the ballgame came in the fourth quarter. But by then the game was already well in-hand for the Pirates.
Freshman DaWan Lomax led the rushing attack for Boonville with two carries for 93 yards and one score. Lomax also had one catch for 64 yards and one touchdown.
Andrew Wiser, meanwhile, finished the game with eight carries for 71 yards and one touchdown while Harper Stock had six carries for 53 yards and one touchdown.
Freshman quarterback Jamesian McKee also had a big game for the Pirates by completing 6 of 10 passes for 173 yards and three touchdowns. Jamesian also threw to six different receivers in the ballgame. DJ Wesolak had one catch for 45 yards and one touchdown while Tyson Franklin hauled in one catch for 40 yards and one score, Wiser two catches for 28 yards, Hunter Pethan one catch for 13 yards and Marquies Coleman one for 2 yards.
