The Buckeye first unit won their first game of the afternoon 41-3. They took a break while the second unit bested the Pirates 28-8. The first unit then played a final game, claiming a 44-8 win.
Quarterback McLane Carter, along with receivers Quinn Fluellen, Kris Boyd and Chase Tate demolished the overpowered Pirate defense, and Buckeye defenders wreaked havoc on the Pirate offense as Kollin Hurt had two big interceptions and Kris Boyd added another.
The Gilmer Junior Varsity also handily won their two games against the Pirate JV, and the 7th and 8th grade teams won both their contests as well. The 8th grade’s first game was close, but a late score gave the Buckeyes a 17-13 victory.
