The Crystal River Pirates fell to the Weeki Wachee Hornets 27-9 Friday night.
The game was indicative of the days leading up for the Pirates (4-5).
They implemented some new faces to the team, including a freshman quarterback, in lieu of six player injuries and four additional suspensions due to an off campus incident.
“We had nine freshman playing tonight,” Pirates coach Nate Varnadore said. “We move on.”
