GOOD,Ky — The Belfry Pirates finished up a four game stretch at home with a win over the Sheldon Clark Cardinals on Tuesday night the final score was 8-1.

Christian Long began the scoring during the 10th minute of play with a penalty kick he squeaked past the goalie. The Pirates would continue to score three unanswered goals. The first was an unintended score off of a Cardinal player but the other two were meant. Nick McNamee scored during the 20th minute, and brother Noah McNamee scored during the 27th minute from a Wilson Harris assist.
Nathan Frey scored the lone goal for the Cardinals during the 31st minute. This goal was a prize in itself as it marked the first goal ever scored in Sheldon Clark history. The goal was scored unassisted.
The rest of the game was all Belfry as Austin Dillon and Zach Estepp both scored before the end of the first period. In the second half Cade Watson and Noah McNamee scored the final points for the Pirates.
The Pirates attempted 33 shots against Cardinals goalie; Heath Maynard who had 12 saves during the match. The Cardinals attempted seven shots against Belfry’s goalie, Jacob Blackburn who had three saves.
