First year head coach Dave Rodriguez: “I’m proud of our kids and proud of this city the school and the alumni as everyone came out and watched a good incredible Pirate tradition give credit to an incredible coaching staff that put together an outstanding game plan which isn’t easy to play El Camino as I give all my respect to Coach Roberts of El Camino and his staff in a well fought game and we came out on top.” “We play for the Coach Herb Meyer trophy and we get to keep it for another 365 days hopefully we will keep it for another year, our defensive staff came up with a game plan they invaded our territory as I’m proud of our kids on a good performance.” “QB Rob Beardsley threw 2 good passes today this is an expression of the play that we ran in practice but tonight the moment came and Rob made the correct read on a receiver as they made great catches with the ball as we expect them to and they did the play well.” For the CIF playoffs we will find out tomorrow morning on the CIF website on who we might play either in the Open Division or go to Division I, I am proud of the Pirates to play in the football playoffs we had our ups and downs battled injuries and we played our rival El Camino tonight.”
The Wildcats at 5-5 scored their only touchdown in the 4th quarter as Tami Tai threw a 33 yards to Dante Dreisbach with the PAT Good.
The Wildcats lead this series 61-43-4 ties.
