Pirates win 36-6 over Eagles

By Jody Michael
The Tioga defense allowed just one touchdown, and Carsen Canfield rushed for 287 yards and two touchdowns as the Pirates earned a 36-6 win at New Town on Friday.
Canfield also led the way defensively with five tackles.
Offensively, Tioga picked up right where it left off in the previous week’s win, as the Pirates accounted for 414 total yards of offense – 391 on the ground and 23 through the air – and five touchdowns.
Austin Hove rushed for one  touchdown and threw another to Parker Jackson, and Caleb Johnson ran for 49 yards and the game’s final score.
After Hove’s scores built a 14-0 halftime lead, a Canfield 65-yard touchdown run put the Pirates up 22-0, and he added to the margin with a 24-yard touchdown run.
Tioga (2-2, 2-1 Region 6) turned over the ball twice, both on fumbles, but still won the takeaway battle over New Town (1-3, 1-2) as the defense recovered a fumble of its own and intercepted two passes by Eagles quarterback Noah Wollschlager.
Tioga hosts Ray (0-4, 0-3) on Friday at 7 p.m. The game is Tioga’s homecoming contest and also the second edition of the rival schools’ “Battle of the Firestorm,” so named after their former co-op team.
Last year, the Pirates held off Ray 28-12 largely due to registering eight takeaways on defense.
