Almost all of the action happened in the first half, where the Pirates put up 37 points in the first two quarters alone.

Defensively, the Pirates put on yet another stellar performance, racking up multiple sacks and two interceptions to allow the offense to keep pounding the ball down the field. Star performers from the game include Branson Adams, who rushed for three touchdowns and a two point conversion. Quarterback Javondre Page was responsible for two rushing touchdowns himself, as well as a 17-yard touchdown pass to Ford Moser in the first quarter.
