Putnam City senior running back JaVone Knox ran for two touchdowns and senior Michael Jordan returned an interception for a first-half TD to give the Pirates the lead they would never lose on the way to a 34-6 victory over Putnam City North on Friday.
The PC North offense never seemed to get going, showing many signs of lack of experience including bobbled snaps and false starts throughout the game. The Panther offense gained only 145 yards of total offense.
The Panthers’ lone score came in the second quarter. It was set up by a Knox fumble that let the Panthers start from the Pirate 26. Junior running back Cayman Johnson’s three-yard TD run on fourth down capped the drive to make it 20-6.
PC’s Denzel Dean added a 1-yard touchdown run, and Pirates sophomore quarterback Braden Hudson tossed a 10-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Brown in the first play of the fourth quarter.
Next up for PC North is Mustang Thursday at Putnam City Stadium. Mustang lost its opener to Yukon 19-16.
