The Perry Pirates were a 51-point winner on Friday night, topping the Orange Lions 71-20 in a week six victory.
A key player in the win for the 6-0 Pirates was Desmond Malone, as he set a school-record with four interceptions, all in the first half of the big win.
Malone took back a pick for a score, and through six weeks of the season has recorded six interceptions, tops in the area.
Thanks to the effort of Malone he’s the week six “NEOSI High School Football Player of the Week.”

Desmond Malone Perry 57 Percent
Jake Fisher Ellet 31 Percent
