H.S. FOOTBALL: Williamsburg tops Berea

BEREA — The Pirates hosted district opponent Williamsburg Friday, falling 47-12.

Hunter Wilson took the opening kickoff for a touchdown to give Berea a six-point lead.  The Pirates would continue to play solid on both sides of the ball until the late in the second quarter.

Williamsburg would convert a 4th-and-8 to take a 21-6 halftime advantage.

“Everything was working,” Berea coach Adam Coleman said. “We went into halftime confident despite giving up the late first half touchdown.”

The second half would be a much different story for the Pirates.

After recovering an onside kick, the Pirates would give the ball up on a fumble the very next play, which would eventually set up one of the four touchdowns that Williamsburg would score in the third quarter.

The Pirates were short-handed in the secondary due to injury and the visiting team would capitalize, scoring three of those four touchdowns through the air.

The Pirates other score came on a 50-yard plus rush again from Wilson.

“I’m pleased with our guys, we played a good team, but we shot ourselves in the foot on some mistakes, dropping some could-be interceptions plays that could change the outcome of the game tremendously.”

The Pirates will travel to Campbellsville next week and with a victory could set up a possibility of a three-way tie for second place in the district .  

“It takes time,” Coleman said. “But we are moving in the right direction.”
