Maplewood Richmond Heights football came back from its 7-0 loss to Park Hill Central to defeat Perryville 49-10 last Friday.
No St. Louis media was there to cover the game, but the hometown paper did.
"The Pirates knew they were in for a hard-hitting and physical game against Maplewood.
“They have a lot of nice athletes and a lot of speed,” said Pirate Head Coach Mike Wojtczuk. “It didn’t look like it on the scoreboard, but I really can’t fault my kids’ effort. They fought hard and we did some good things tonight.”
The Blue Devils play Fredericktown (4-1) Friday night at MRH.
