Pirates top Geneva for CVC three-peat

With a 35-6 win at Geneva on Friday, the Perry Pirates earned at least a share of a third straight Chagrin Valley Conference Chagrin Division title.

“That is really goal No. 1 for us,” Perry coach Matt Rosati said. “I’m really proud of our guys. That’s three straight years going through the conference undefeated (with one game left to play). I’m happy we have a three-peat. That was one of our goals.”

Perry struck first when Jake Reid hauled in a 30-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Drew Schiano. Geneva blocked the extra point.

The Pirates exploded for 29 points in the second quarter.

“We just did what we do,” Rosati said. “We played pretty well. We wanted to try and get a running clock by halftime and we were able to do that.”

Perry recorded a safety then Reid caught touchdown passes of seven and 22 yards. Sampson Agostine booted both extra points to increase the Perry lead to 22-0. Jacob Allen added a three-yard touchdown reception and Anthony Rosati closed out the Pirate scoring with a 55-yard reception from Reid.

Schiano finished the game 11-of-16 passing for 147 yards with four touchdown passes. Reid caught seven passes for 110 yards and Jaylen Anderson led the Pirates with 45 rushing yards on five carries.

“Jake Reid had a pretty big game,” Rosati said. “He caught three touchdown passes and threw for one and had two interceptions and we were able to get points off of both of them. That’s not a bad day.”

Caleb Selman, who led the Eagles with 47 yards on two carries, scored on a nine-yard run to put Geneva on the board in the fourth quarter.

Perry improved to 8-1 on the year and will close out the regular season at home against Harvey on Friday. The Pirates already clinched a home playoff game against an opponent to be determined.
