Vashon football defeated by Orting in a rout

A seasoned Orting football team took it to the young Pirate team on Friday, beating them 56-0.

Vashon got the ball to start the game, that possession ending in a punt. Orting started out with a five-play touchdown drive and never looked back.

After a blocked punt and several turnovers led to Orting touchdowns, Orting was significantly ahead at halftime, 42-0.

On the first play from scrimmage in the third quarter, Orting took it to the house again. Later in the quarter, the Pirates had one long, sustained drive ending with an interception at the one-yard line.

Orting had one more score in the fourth quarter, leading to a win for the Cardinals, 56-0.

To add insult to injury, the team bus broke down while on the way to Point Defiance to catch the last ferry of the night. Luckily the cheerleaders had taken a small bus to the game and were at the ferry dock waiting to load. Rides were arranged for the cheerleaders, and the small bus, along with some parents in their cars, went back to pick up the stranded team and then drove to Fauntleroy to catch a late boat.

The Pirates’ next game is the Homecoming game against Chimacum this Friday at 7 p.m.
