VIDEO: Quirante leads Pirates to 40-21 victory over Jags

BEAUMONT — Call Saturday night's performance the Montana Quirante show.

The Central Jaguars (2-5, 2-2) made it an interesting game in the fourth quarter but, at the end of the night, Montana Quirante and the Vidor Pirates (6-1,3-1) ran away with the victory for a 40-21 win.

The Pirates offense totaled 421 yard with 399 coming on the ground. Quirante stole the show picking up 240 yards rushing on 22 carries including a remarkable six rushing touchdowns. Bryce Cooper helped in the effort by contributing a 52-yard carry that eventually lead to points for the Pirates.

The Jaguars found success through the air as Robert Mitchel completed 13 passes for 185 yards. Mitchel did find the end zone on three different runs as he also totaled 47 yards rushing. Garrison Mitchell lead the way receiving with 61 yards but Nicalus Rhone was the go-to-receiver with six receptions for a total of 44 yards.

The Jaguars would receive the kickoff and both teams traded three and outs to start off the game. Austin Rodriguez would give the Pirates their first break of the night with an interception to set up the offense on the 50 yard line.

It would only take three plays for Quirante to find the end-zone. He navigated through the defense for a 39 yard touchdown run to put the Pirates on the board first. Michael Tamayo would tack on the point after as the Pirates lead 7-0 with 5:51 remaining in the first.

After forcing the Jags to punt on the following drive the Pirates would set up shop on their own 35 yard line. This time it would take four plays to find pay dirt. Bryce Cooper carried the ball 52 yards before he was stopped at the six yard line. After a few penalties the Pirates found themselves in a first and goal situation from the 20 yard line. The Jags would not be able to stop Quirante from finding the endzone for the second time. After a botched snap on the PAT the scoreboard would read 13-0 with 2:28 left in the first.
