Page senior quarterback Will Jones threw for more than 200 yards and had five touchdown passes in the Pirates’ 49-13 victory over West Forsyth. Ronald Polite, a senior wide receiver was Jones’ main target with three touchdown receptions. Polite had more than 100 yards receiving in the first half including TD catches of 45 yards and 21 yards. A 30 yard TD with less than 20 seconds left before the half pushed Page’s lead to 28-7.

The Pirates marched 63 yards in five plays. They opened the scoring with a 45 yard TD pass to Polite from Jones. The Titans fumbled and Page capitalized using two plays and completed a 21 yard TD pass to Polite again.

Early in the second quarter Page marched 67 yards, using 11 plays with Javon Leake scoring on a one yard run lifting the Pirates to a 21-0 lead.

The victory earned the Pirates an NCHSAA 4-AA West semifinal home match-up with Charlotte Vance this Friday (Dec. 9) at Marion Kirby Stadium. Both teams will bring 13-1 records to the game.
