GRANBURY — At 5-0, the Granbury Pirates are off to their best start in 32 years after cruising to a 56-13 homecoming victory Friday over Fort Worth Wyatt at Pirate Stadium.
Granbury coach Scotty Pugh said the historical implications weren’t lost on his team.
“I told our guys that they have something special going on and can do something no Granbury team has done in 32 years,” said Pugh, whose team is 2-0 in District 7-4A. “It was a special game. I just try to tell them to be better than last week.”
Quarterback Ryan Suitt wasted no time getting his offense on the board when he bolted up the middle for 43 yards on the Pirates’ first play from scrimmage for a 7-0 lead.
In limited opportunities, Suitt finished as the Pirates’ leading rusher with 61 yards on two carries.
Granbury’s Kevin Hennard returned two punts for touchdowns, one for 61 yards and the other for 39. Malik Allen padded the Pirates’ lead with two touchdown runs in the first quarter from 5 and 9 yards out.
Javonte Adams gave Wyatt (1-4, 0-2) its lone score of the half with a 44-yard touchdown run with 27 seconds to go in the second quarter.
The Pirates went into the locker room at halftime leading 49-7.
