Boonville Pirates JV football coach Seth Brimer said the kids executed the game play to almost perfection Monday night while beating the Eldon Mustangs 48-12.
The Pirates JV, 4-3 on the season, led Eldon 21-12 at the half and then outscored the Mustangs 27-0 in the second half to win by 36.
“Tonight we had some kids playing out of position due to injuries and some varsity call ups,” Brimer said. “That being said the kids executed the game plan to almost perfection. We still need to take care of the ball at times when either the offense or defense took steps backwards the other stepped up and supported them. We still need to sharpen up our focus a bit and stop committing so many penalties, but that is fixable. We look to closeout our season on a positive note against Hallsville on Monday night.”
