Pirates drop league-opener 69-26

PERRYDALE — Perrydale’s football team dropped its league-opener, falling to Arlington 69-26 on Friday.

Running back Cooper Butler had 14 carries for 166 yards. Randall Canfield rushed 11 times for 123 yards and a touchdown.

Quarterback David Domes threw for 110 yards and a touchdown. Josh Crawford had three catches for 48 yards and returned a kick 74 yards for a touchdown.

On defense, Butler led the Pirates with 14 tackles. JJ Avila recorded 11 tackles and Domes had six tackles and an interception.

“We are learning that it’s a four-quarter game,” coach Steve Mabry said. “Our youth has shown up over the past few weeks with a lack of focus at times, with turnovers, and not making plays when they are available. I like the effort the kids have given, we just need to keep progressing forward.”

The Pirates (1-2 overall, 0-1 Special District 4) plays at McKenzie Friday at 7 p.m.
