The Cedarville Little League Pirates are loading their cannons and preparing to set sail into the 2019 West Central Football League season. After battling against new opponents in uncharted waters last season, the Little League Pirates now know that they can shoot it out with anyone. Proof of that came in last years WCFL playoff game against Hackett were the third and fourth grade Pirates took the Hornets into five overtimes before falling in a thriller game.
That was last season. This season the Pirates are ready to plunder their way to take the WCFL Championship for themselves. With a team full of talent and top-notch coaching, they know it’s a very achievable goal. The Pirates will square off against stiff competition this season as they face all three newcomers to the league, Greenland, West Fork, and Lavaca along with the familiar faces of Magazine and JC Westside who both made the playoffs last season.
Cedarville Little League President and WCFL Vice President, Keith Ridgeway, said “We’re very excited about the 2019 season. We were successful last year even with low numbers. That success should help us grow during sign-ups this year. Our program knows we can go head to head with anyone in the league and we look forward to it. It’s also nice to be able to play Greenland, West Fork, & Mountainburg on the schedule this season. Those should make for some really good games.”
What it boils down to is that the Cedarville Little League Pirates are ready for some football. The community of Cedarville is ready to paint the town blue and support their Pirates all the way to the Gold. The waters are calm. The wind is in their favor. And it’s almost time to raise the colors.
