WINFIELD — The Winfield Pirates’ late rally came up short as the Pirates fell to the Gordo Greenwave in a Class 3A, Region 5 game, 25-18 on Friday, Sept. 8, at Estes Hudson Stadium in Winfield.
Trailing 18-3 to begin the fourth quarter, the Pirates were able to score a touchdown and got a 2 point conversion to cut lead to 18-11 and scored one more time late, but it was not enough to overcome the deficit.
