The VHS Pirates ended their season with a home-game loss to South Whidbey High School Friday night, 48-14. The game was dominated by the Falcons, who completed several long passes and executed strong running plays to lead 41-0 at the half.
But the Pirates reemerged from the locker room fired up for the second half, and in the fourth quarter, the team showed what they’re made of when sophomore Nate Lawson passed the ball to his brother, senior Josh Lawson, shown above, who got the pigskin to the 10-yard line. A final pass from freshman QB Sam Schoenberg to junior Garrett Starr put the Pirates on the board. Starr made another TD in the final minutes of the game. Clyde Pruett made both PATs.
It was also senior night at the football stadium, a chance to honor the team’s five retiring seniors — Jefferson Douglas, Peter Evans, Josh Lawson, Elan Peterson and Alex Soriano.
