Not since 2012 had the Pellston football team won a week one season opener. That changed this last Friday night as Pellston hosted the Bellaire Eagles. At the 3:39 mark in the first quarter, Isaiah Crawford scampered in from 7 yards out for the first score of the night. Glenn Bonter connected with Garrett Cameron for the 2 point conversion giving the Hornets an 8-0 lead. Halfway through the second quarter, Bonter connected with Ian Reimann on a 26 yard touchdown pass. Crawford ran in the 2 point conversion to give the Hornets a 16-12 lead. Pellston’s first offensive series to start off the second half was an 8 play 75 yard drive. Bonter located Reimann, once again, on another 26 yard touchdown giving the Hornets a 22-12 lead. Late into the fourth quarter, Crawford steam rolled through the Eagle defense on an 18 yard touchdown run. Senior Evan Cameron capped off Pellston’s scoring for the evening by catching a 2 point conversion giving the Hornets a 30 -12 win. Offensively, Bonter rushed for 164 yards on 24 carries and passed for two touchdowns. Reimann had two completions for 52 yards and two touchdowns. Crawford had 87 yards rushing and two touchdowns. Defensively, the Hornets were led by Reimann who had 4 solo tackles and 5 assists. David Jamroz and Crawford each had 3 solo tackles and 4 assists. Garrett Cameron had two interceptions. The week 1 victory was Pellston’s first win against Bellaire since 2009. Pellston hosts Posen this upcoming Friday at 7:00.
