Page played with a purpose and they were making people proud of the Pirates tonight at Marion Kirby Stadium and NG Nighthawks win big on the road in Fayetteville
Wild game at Page this evening, as Butler QB Riley Ferguson threw for 347 yards and three TD’s in the first half to give his Bulldogs a lead of 26-12 at halftime and then the Page Pirates turned it on and turned up the heat and went on to beat Butler 40-26, at Marion Kirby Stadium….
Big plays by Page in the second half with big-time runs by James Summers, Drew Rogers, Orlando Hatfield and other Pirates like Brian Spain were making the key catches/receptions and even a man we had not talked that much about before tonight, Jalen Gavin, came up with key runs on returns and end arounds…..Some of those return yards by Drew Rogers were off of the chalkboard and off the charts……
When James Summers was not making plays on offense he was making plays on defense, with a key pick/interception late…..In the first half, Savon Wall was fighting to stay on the field and then in the second half he pulls off a stunning pass interception in the end zone and just like the pick by James Summers, it prevented a sure Butler Bulldog touchdown…..
Brian Spain had a fumble recovery on a kickoff and the Pirates were all over the place…..Shaun Workinger was running the football and playing defense like a man that was possessed…..
Page has had some BIG defensive efforts this season, but the effort in the second half tonight might have been the best I’ve seen all year and that second half was a HUGE Shut Out effort….
Again eleven key reasons why Page went on to win that game tonight……Shaun Workinger, DeAnthony Brooks, Jacob Green, Blake Hickman, Christian Cranford, Evan Roer, Grant Brewer, Will Henry, Ed Britt, Savon Wall, Carter Stanley…..There’s 11 reasons for you right there why the Page Pirates are still winning…..
James Summers is playing a lot like Ricky Lewis did for Dudley when #22 led the Panthers to Titles back in 2008 and 2009….#18 and #22, not too much separating those two young men right now……
More on the Northern Guilford Nighthawks work down at Fayetteville Byrd coming in the morning when we have more time to sort that one out….
Until then, Round Three Vitory by Coach G and the team from P-A-G-E tonight and the Big P was the place to be, to see the B-I-G Victory in Round Three…..
