H.S. FOOTBALL: Pirates set to open district play

RICHMOND — The Berea Community Pirates (1-5) are coming off a bye week and looking for their second win of the season tonight against district rival Lynn Camp (3-3).

The Pirates were shutout at home by Ludlow in their last game two weeks ago in a very lackluster performance.

But during the off week, Pirates coach Adam Coleman said he had some “heart-to-heart talks” with some of his players.

And it seems to have worked because the team has had some of its best practices of the season this week so Coleman said he expects a much better showing this week.

“We have moved some people around this week, so you’ll see some people in different positions. I think we’ve done some things to make ourselves better,” Coleman said. “We kind of called everybody out after the loss two weeks ago. This week, we’ve had three really good days of practice. They came in and hit it hard all week. I think the boys are anxious to get going again.”

The Wildcats have a lot of team speed and can put up points in bunches. Controlling the ball and keeping Lynn Camp’s offense off the field will be key, Coleman said.

“I think we match up size wise with them, but they have a lot of speed. We’re going to crowd them up front and we’ve got to tackle better that we have the last couple of weeks,” he said. “I think this is a team we can block up front, so if we keep our assignments I feel like we can run on them and control the ball and keep them off the field.”

The Pirates running game is led by Cory Mowery and Jason Strong.

The Pirates offense has improved over the season. In the passing game, quarterback Kevin Reed has begun to find a rhythm with his receivers, especially Deondre Tate and Josh Lamb.

Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
