Pirates plunder Chico, 53-7

By Bob Buckel | Published Saturday, October 26, 2013

The second quarter had just started at Collinsville when Chico’s Matt Carter broke a 38-yard touchdown run.

Ivan Segura’s kick made the score 12-7 and the Dragons enjoyed a flicker of hope.

It was quickly snuffed.

The first of 41 unanswered points came on the ensuing kickoff return, an 80-yard scamper by the Pirates’ Haden Smith, and the Dragons (4-4, 0-3) saw their playoff window get smaller.

Collinsville went to 6-2 overall and 3-0 in district.

The first quarter saw the Pirates’ John Lewis punch in two touchdowns, seven minutes apart. But after Smith’s runback made it 18-7, the scores came in a flurry as the hosts put up two more touchdowns 21 seconds apart, then added another for a 39-7 halftime lead.

The first of those came on a 22-yard run by Lewis. Less than half a minute later, Conner Daley picked off a Jericoe McGuire pass and ran it back 48 yards to paydirt.

Daley hit Smith for a 20-yard touchdown strike with 1:25 left in the half.

The Pirates added two more touchdowns in the third quarter, a 74-yard run by Lewis and a 16-yard pass from Daley to Jacob Clayton, before they called off the dogs for a scoreless fourth.

Collinsville had 16 first downs to Chico’s six, and 331 yards rushing to a hard-fought 113 for Chico on 41 carries. Twelve of those carries went to Carter as he gained 50 yards.

Lewis racked up 177 for the Pirates on 14 carries.

McGuire was 0-for-8 passing with two interceptions. Daley had 77 yards on 4-of-8 passing, with two completions going for touchdowns.

The Dragons still have two district games, with Blue Ridge coming in Friday for homecoming, and a trip to Trenton to end the regular season.
