Pirates hoping to build after loss to Azle

Kyler Young said he saw more than six points when Clay Walters crossed the goal line in the fourth quarter of Friday’s 49-7 Granbury home football loss to Azle in the season opener.

The Pirates were out of the game by the time Walters scored, down 42-0, but Young believes the momentum with which they finished the game could carry over into this Friday’s contest at Denton.
