Pirates blank Mitchell in league opener

PERRYDALE — Perrydale’s football team defeated Mitchell 60-0 on Friday night in the Pirates’ Special District 4 opener.

Haylen Janesofsky had 14 carries for 158 yards and three touchdowns while Cooper Butler had 13 rushes for 84 yards and one touchdown.

JJ Avila added three carries for 56 yards and a touchdown.

“We improved our blocking a great deal,” coach Duane Riddell said. “We executed the defense and just did a lot of things well.”

The Pirates improved to 2-1 overall and 1-0 in Special District 4 play.

Perrydale plays at Dufur Friday at 7 p.m.

Dufur enters the game 3-0 and has scored 50 or more points in each of its last two games.

“We need to keep improving, stepping into the correct places, getting to the line correctly and make less mistakes than before,” Riddell said. “That’s life. You make mistakes and keep trying to correct them.”

The Pirates are eager to see just how they stack up against one of the league’s best.

“The kids are looking forward to Friday,” Riddell said. “It will be a real test for us and a good marker to see where we are at right now.”
