H.S. FOOTBALL: Pirates pick up first win of season

BEREA — The Pirates’ offense finally busted out in a big way Friday at home against Bracken County (1-3).

Berea Community jumped out to a 20-0 lead and rolled to a 47-14 win over the Polar Bears. Jason Strong rushed for three touchdowns, Kevin Reed threw three touchdowns and Cory Mowery had a rushing TD as the Pirates (1-3) picked up their first victory of the season.

“This was an important win for us,” Berea coach Adam Coleman said. “We came out ready to play. I think it proved to us what we can do when we come out ready to play.”

The Pirates had scored only 18 total points through the first three weeks of the season.

Against Bracken County, they had a 27-8 lead at halftime.

Strong scored Berea’s first three TDs, scoring on runs of 35, 30 and 5 yards.

Deondre Tate had a 60-yard TD catch in the second quarter that allowed the Pirates to really take control.

In the second half, Mowery had a 45-yard TD run and Reed threw TD passes to C.J. Isaacs (15 yards) and Tate (35 yards).

Tate also had an interception late in the first half deep in Berea territory that ended a Bracken County drive.

“That was a big turning point,” Coleman said.

Robbie Watkins provided solid play in the secondary as the Pirates allowed a new season-low point total.

Berea also had more than 400 yards of offense.

The Pirates are set to return to action Friday at Jackson County.
