The Pirates have rolled through the non-district opponents of their schedule so far this season.

In six-straight wins, Berea Community (6-0) really hasn't been challenged, winning each game by at least 14 points.

The Pirates, however, are set face a very tough test this weekend.

There are only three remaining undefeated teams in Class A — Berea, Kentucky Country Day and Pikeville (6-0).
