Pirates smother Knights to set up showdown

MERLIN — Chris Kammel passed for 303 yards and the Phoenix offense used the big play to put North Valley on its heels in a 56-20 rout for the Pirates on Friday in a Skyline Conference football game.

The Phoenix win, which moved the Pirates to 3-0 in Skyline play, sets up a key matchup next Friday with Henley. The Hornets will also enter the regular season-finale at Phoenix unbeaten.

The Pirates (5-2 overall) finished with 460 total yards and outscored the Knights 28-7 in the second half to pull away.

"We were able to get the ball to our playmakers in space and they were able to make the big plays after the catch," said first-year Phoenix coach Toby Walker.

North Valley (4-5, 2-2 Skyline) was able to rush for 200 yards but had to go primarily with the passing attack after falling behind big in the second half.

"Getting down like that definitely took us out of what we wanted to do," said North Valley coach Todd Willaman. "Give them credit, they had some big plays and played good defense against us."
