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.

“It was more than a touchdown to all of us,” the Pirates’ junior quarterback said. “You’ve got to start somewhere, and hopefully that marked the start of a turnaround for us.”

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.

Pirates out to prove 2014 ‘a fluke’

Not so long ago the Granbury Pirates were enjoying their finest football season in nearly five decades, finishing 9-2.

Now, the plan is to prove that last season was a fluke, and that the 2013 season is more in line with what Pirate fans should come to expect.
