WARNING! WARNING! The Pirates are on attack and are ready to invade enemy territory.

The Pattonville Pirates (5-1) are looking like they are out to prove that last year’s run to the state championship game was not based just on luck. They are the same high-scoring team from last year after coming off a 48-14 victory in Week 6’s away match-up against the Rockwood Summit Falcons (2-4).

Summit last beat Pattonville in 2014 when they snuck away with a 13-11 victory. Since then, the Pirates have dominated the games.

  • 2014 – Rockwood Summit 13, Pattonville 11
  • 2015 – Pattonville 20, Rockwood Summit 7
  • 2016 – Pattonville 28, Rockwood Summit 13
  • 2017 – Pattonville 42, Rockwood Summit 0
  • 2018 – Pattonville 48, Rockwood Summit 14

On Sept. 28, the Pirates were led by Reggie Oliphant who scored a touchdown on a fumble recovery, Sam Sanderson who got into the end zone twice, and Vicario Upchurch who caught three balls for touchdowns. Overall, quarterback Andre Webb connected with receivers for four passing touchdowns in the game.

This team has proved that they are the real deal and that last year’s state run was not a fluke. Everything is there this season for the Pirates on defense, and they may have the best offense in the St. Louis area at this point in the season.

After Andre Webb’s monster performance on Friday, I had to ask him some questions about the team.

Brandon Clark: How do you feel being more involved in the passing game?

Andre Webb: “Being more involved in the passing game is good because it gets my teammate’s names out there and it also gives my teammates a taste of what it’s like and to make a name for themselves.”

Brandon Clark: How confident are you that your team can return to the state championship game?

Andre Webb: “I’m confident in my team. We have what it takes to go back to state. We have different teams to go through and it’s going to be tough since we are now in Class 6 [Pattonville was Class 5 in 2017]. We have more challenging teams to face, but I believe in my team and I think we can make it back to the promise land.”

Pattonville will play Marquette (4-2) at home on Oct. 5. One of the Mustangs’ losses was to a common opponent, Kirkwood (5-1). Earlier this season, Kirkwood defeated Marquette 58-20 while the Pioneers’ lone loss on the year came by a 42-32 loss to the Pirates.

Pattonville is No. 10 in the Week 6 Area Large Schools Football Rankings by the Post-Dispatch.  The Pirates will try to live up to those expectations against the Mustangs who are currently ranked On the Bubble.

The contest is set to kick off at 7 p.m. on Oct. 5 at Pattonville.

The game will be broadcasted on Facebook LIVE and can be seen on PattonvilleTODAY.com/LIVE
