Winfield 41 Vinemont 8
WINFIELD - Winfield trailed in a game for the first time all season, before reeling off 41 unanswered points en route to a 41-8 region victory over the Vinemont Eagles on homecoming, on Friday, Oct. 1, in Winfield.
The win improved Winfield to 7-0 on the season and 4-0 in Class 3A, Region 6.
The win also clinched a playoff berth for the Pirates for the fourth consecutive season.
The Pirates used a quick-strike offense and some timely defense to overcome the early Eagles lead and put the game out of reach.
“It’s another region win and I believe that clinched the playoffs for us,” said Winfield head coach David McKinney. “ I’m tickled to death for the win and the coaches did an awesome job.”
“We played like crap tonight mentally and emotionally, and we are going to get that corrected next week.
We needed this, and they hit us in the mouth pretty good and we needed some of that.”
“We are going to work hard this week and get ready to take care of our business at Holly Pond next Friday,” said McKinney.
