The Pirates won their second straight MSC game Friday night, in front of a packed Bone Yard and very spirited student section. The Pirates started their game with North Harrison, ending the first two Cougar drives with a pair of Eli Daniel interception; however fumbled the ball three times in the first half. One of the fumbles led to a late first quarter Cougar touchdown. The Pirates (3-1 & 2-1 MSC) answered in the second, scoring two touchdowns on passes from Senior QB Tristan Chester to Cameron Hopson and Eli Daniel to take a 14-6 advantage to the halftime break. The Pirate’s Tate Boley received the second half kickoff and returned it 90 yards to open the half with a Charlestown score. North Harrison fumbled on their next two drives, of which the Pirates took full advantage of, scoring on an eight yard TD run by Jarren Anderson and a 22 yard Chester to Garrett Woods toss. The Pirates, leading 34-6 saw the Cougars score to cap a ten play 75 yard drive near the end of the third. Charlestown opened the fourth with a seven play 72 yard drive, scoring when Chester hit Woods again for a touchdown strike of 17 yards.

The Charlestown Pirate Football team (2-1 & 1-1 MSC), coming off last Saturday’s last second heart breaker versus Brownstown in the “Oil Can”, showed little sign of let down Friday night at Clarksville. The Pirates, didn’t rebound, they took their emotional frustrations out on their next opponent….sorry Generals, for the eighth consecutive time; routing Clarksville 35-0 before cruising to a 49-28 conference win. Generals fans were allowed their fun, and the Generals padded their stats; as Clarksville Coach Steve Cooley left his varsity in the entire game when Coach Ward pulled his starters, well before mid-way through the third. Charlestown (who won the coin toss and deferred) struck pay-dirt on their first drive, and it only took two plays to march 61 yards. Junior Syd Gieseking capped the drive with a 5 yard touchdown run. The Pirates’ second drive took four plays, encompassed 61 yards and again was finished with a Gieseking 21 yard TD run. Charlestown stopped the third General possession with a Junior Tate Boley interception of an attempted 21 yard Kissell (Cville QB) pass. After a Pirate punt, the Generals fumbled on the Charlestown 30 yard line, recovered by Boley. Sophomore Antonyo Gaddie ran over half the Clarksville team on the next play, rolling 82 yards for another Pirate touchdown to make it 21-zip. The Generals punt on their next possession before the Pirates marched 60 yards in five plays, highlighted by a Gaddie 10 yard TD to push the score to 28-0 midway through the second. Clarksville punts on their next drive before Senior QB Tristan Chester hit Senior Eli Daniel for a 67 yard touchdown strike, on the second play from scrimmage, to take a 35-0 halftime lead. Gaddie opened the second by returning the kick-off 85 for a touchdown, however a Pirate penalty nullified the score. Charlestown scored on their first drive of the second half after nine plays ended with a six yard touchdown pass from Chester to Sophomore Garrett Woods. Clarksville (2-1 & 1-1 MSC) got on the board with six minutes remaining in the third, but failed on the ensuring conversion. Charlestown responded two plays later, including a 49 yard Junior Jarren Anderson TD run to make the count 49-6. Junior Kicker Jose Arredondo missed the school record of eight PAT’s in one game by when, kicking a perfect seven extra points during the game. Clarksville scored three times against the Pirate reserves before attempting an on-side kick with seconds remaining in the game. Pirate QB Tristan Chester finished 8 for 11 for 126 yards and two TDs and was named the Offensive Player of the Game. Kyle Flowers, who finished the game with 12 tackles, was named the Defensive Player of the Game. Charlestown opens home play Friday, hosting North Harrison (1-2) in the Bone Yard.

The game was as emotional as any rivalry game you can find, and the setting and atmosphere was nothing short of story-book style. The Charlestown Pirate Football team, in the opinions of most statewide procrastinators, wasn’t expected to finish Saturday’s Lucas Oil Stadium Showcase within forty points of Class 3A #5 Brownstown……but that’s definitely not what type of game was played. Brownstown Head Coach Reed May was quoted in local media stories, regarding Saturday’s game, indicating that his team didn’t “want the game” as much as the Pirates did, until the end. Excuses can be made all day long; but to witnesses who watched the entire game between Charlestown and Brownstown, in the house that “Peyton built”, know different. The Charlestown coaching staff, under new head coach Darin Ward, prepared a well designed attack of the senior laiden Braves; and made more than just a game of it. The Pirates (1-1 & 0-1 MSC) and Braves both punted on their opening drives, before Sophomore Antonyo Gaddie capped a 13 play 97 yard drive with a one yard score (PAT failed). Brownstown (2-0 & 1-0 MSC) then scored on their next possession, with 10:26 remaining in the second quarter. Drives for both teams stalled twice leaving a 7-6 Brave advantage at the half. Charlestown forced the Braves to punt after five plays to start the second half, but the Pirates fumbled the return and set up a three play seven yard touchdown drive for Brownstown. Both teams stalled on two drives until late in the fourth when Charlestown recovered a Brave fumble at the three yard line; and scored on another Gaddie touchdown run. The conversion failed making the score 14-12 Brownstown with 2:35 remaining in the game. Charlestown’s Quinton Fetz executed a perfect on side kick, leading the Pirates to a two play 46 yard drive that ended with a Gaddie 23 yard touchdown run. The drive took 14 seconds of the clock and gave the Pirates a six point lead. Brownstown scored again with two clicks left and nailed the extra point to survive with a 21-20 win. Gaddie was named the Coyle Chevy, Buick, GMC and Coyle Nissan Player of the Game; finishing with 185 yards of rushing on 30 carries and three touchdowns. Senior Jason Houchens was named the Defensive Player of the Game after finishing with 12 tackles. The Pirates will travel to Clarksville Friday to continue MSC play.
