Brooks Academy 7

Poth 55

POTH -- The Poth Pirate football team wrapped up District 14-2A last Friday night with an easy 55-7 victory over the Brooks Academy Bengals. With the win, Head Coach Andrew King and the Pirates capped off a second straight undefeated season going into the playoffs.

What was an anticipated rout took practically no time to get under way, as senior Trey Broyles took the opening kickoff and outran all Bengal defenders for a 62-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. Braden Lyssy’s kick gave the Pirates a very early 7-0 lead with 11:45 still on the clock.

The remainder of the first quarter was similar to most of the Pirates’ games throughout the season. Junior star running back Phillip Garza ran for two touchdowns. Senior quarterback Braden Lyssy also accounted for two more scores, including a 48-yard touchdown pass and catch to fellow senior Tyler Kallies. A typical stingy Pirate defense allowed no progress for the Bengal offense, and the Pirates jumped out to a devastating 34-0 first-quarter lead.

Junior running back Zachary Lyssy added touchdown runs of 25 and 65 yards in the second quarter, giving the Pirates a 48-0 halftime lead, and an opportunity for Pirate fans to get a glimpse of Pirate stars to come.

With a first-round playoff bye secured, and a very healthy lead, Coach King, to the mercy of the Bengals, allowed some underclassmen valuable real-game playing time.

Despite a late third-quarter touchdown run by the Bengals’ Giovanni Galata, even a young, inexperienced Pirate defense proved tough to gain any momentum against. Along with a five-tackle second half by sophomore Kyler Felux, the young defense’s performance was highlighted by an interception deep in Pirate territory by sophomore Blake Lyssy.

A youth movement on the offensive side of the ball looked promising as well. Freshman running backs Sean Clancy and Cainan Payne showed some quick feet and heads-up running, gaining 42 and 37 yards, respectively. Then, the highlight of the freshman-filled backfield came with 10:45 left in the game, when quarterback Thomas Krawietz called his own number and scampered his way for his first career touchdown run from 46 yards out, leaving the final score 55-7.

With the blowout giving them most of the second half off, and the well-earned week off, the Pirate starters should be well-rested for the playoffs. All eyes will be on the Schulenburg Shorthorns and Banquette Bulldogs this Friday night, as the Pirates will face the winner of that bi-district contest. The Pirates ended their regular season with a perfect 10-0 record, and a 6-0 record in district play.
