- Pirates pull close, but fall to Centennial, 33-31 October 25, 2014
Granbury scored late in the fourth quarter on a 15-yard pass to Michael Mulholland from quarterback Kyler Young, but Burleson Centennial secured the ball on an onside kick attempt and ran out the final 1:28 for a 33-31 District 8-5A football win over the Pirates Friday at Pirate Stadium. Senior receiver Nick Doughty hauled in TD passes of 25 and 20 yards from starting quarterback Rustin Beasley within a span of 23 seconds midway through the first quarter to give the Pirates a 14-8 lead over the Spartans, thanks in part to Austin Goodnight’s recovery of a Centennial fumble. But neither Beasley nor Doughty were around after the 1:25 mark in the first quarter. Beasley was sideined by an injury and Doughty was ejected after an altercation with a Centennial player. Malik Allen’s 30-yard TD run and Jacob Rose’s 39-yard field goal – set up by Cody Odom’s interception and 25-yard return – rounded out the scoring for the Pirates (1-4, 1-7 overall). The Spartans moved up to 3-2 in district, 5-2 overall.
