Monday, November 1, 2004

The Pirates of Galva-Holstein turned the tables on the Wolverines of Wall Lake View Auburn Friday night when they won at home 36-0.

Otto scored on a keeper to make it 14-0 in the second quarter then Evan Platt chipped in another 2 points on the conversion.

Probably the most dramatic play of he game came when Nobles scored on a 54-yard touchdown run with 3:30 remaining in the first half to make it 22-0, Galva-Holstein.

With just a minute left, Nobles scored again on a 4-yard run to make it 28-0, Galva-Holstein.
