On September 2nd , 2016, the Pearl Pirate football team ventured to Northwest Rankin High School, into Cougar territory, to play the second game of the season.

As 7 o’clock approached on Friday night, the stands began to fill up all across the stadium. The Pirates and the Cougars were more than ready play hard on the field.

Play hard they did.

By the end of the second quarter, the Pirates had seven points; however, the Cougars had scored more and were winning.

In the end, the Cougars won the football game 24-7, their third win of the season.

After the game, Britt Rowell, the defensive coordinator for Northwest Rankin spoke about the game and the Pirates.

“We played a really tough football team, a really well coached football team. I know they [the Pirates] played hard… It’s a good football team and they’re going to be good as the year goes on. I feel very good about it. We got a win against a very quality program.”

The Pearl “Pirate” Band and the Cougarettes were the half time show for all the spectators.

As this football season moves along, the Pirates now stand with one win and one loss. The next football game will be held next Friday against Ridgeland High School.
