This was a last minute game added Friday night to replace CPS, which does not have a team this year. Detroit Academy had also had a team forfeit against it.

Peck opened the game on fire and quickly jumped ahead to a 19-0 lead after the first quarter. The Pirates then added 13 more points to their total in the second to lead 42-0 at the half. After the break, Peck added 13 more points in the third to cap off the night’s scoring and secure the 55-point victory.

The Pirates did not throw the ball once the entire evening, instead choosing to attack on the ground the whole game. Nathan Robar led the offense with five carries for 50 yards and two touchdowns. Nathan Alfaro had 45 yards on 10 carries, Nathan Collins had two rushes for 27 yards and a touchdown and Nolan Sarnac had one rush for 22 yards and a touchdown. Trenton VanConant had one carry for 20 yards and a touchdown and Brandon Winarski had one carry for 18 yards and a touchdown. Winarski also led all Peck tacklers on the night, while Collins had a 45-yard interception return for a touchdown and Adam Robinson had a nineyard fumble recovery for a touchdown.

Peck, 3-1, is at Dryden Friday at 7 p.m.
