HAMILTON — The Winfield Pirates dominated the Hamilton Aggies in the 97th edition of the rivalry between the two schools for a 50-0 win on Friday, Sept. 29 in Hamilton.
Brady May and D’Angelo Bankhead connected on three touchdown passes, to go with two special teams’ touchdowns to lead the Pirates to a dominating win over the Aggies.
Winfield got a score on the opening kickoff and never looked back as the Pirates jumped out to a 36-0 halftime lead and added two more touchdowns in the second half to cruise to the rivalry win.
Winfield received the opening kickoff and Jamykal Hackman took in the kick at the Winfield 26, and he found a running lane and outran the Aggie defenders 74 yards for a touchdown.
Jacob Barnes’ extra point was good, and Winfield took the early 7-0 lead.
The Pirates’ defense stood tall on Hamilton’s first drive of the game and forced a punt, and Winfield City took over at their own 40. The Pirates moved the ball well, but the drive stalled, and the Pirates turned it over on downs back to the Aggies.
Hamilton’s offense could not get anything going and were forced to punt back to the Pirates, but Winfield’s Ezerick Johnson rushed through the Hamilton offense line and blocked the punt with the Pirates Eli Aldridge scooping up the loose ball and running it into the end zone for another special teams’ touchdown.
Barnes’ extra point attempt was blocked by the Aggies, but the Pirates held a 13-0 advantage.
