The Massachusetts Pirates Fight to Keep Winning Streak Alive as they head to South Carolina
The Cobras handed the Pirates the only loss of the season back on April 21, 55 to 47. Since that meeting Carolina has improved on both sides of the ball establishing the National Arena Leagues' best offense scoring 53.8 points per game, while the Pirates are close behind at 53.5. The Cobras defense also ranks first allowing 34.8 points per game while Massachusetts gives up 39.8.
The Pirates are coming off of an exciting overtime win from last Saturday night as Quarterback Sean Brackett dove into the end zone for a two point conversion as the Massachusetts Pirates came from behind in overtime to defeat the Maine Mammoths 44 to 43 at the DCU Center. The victory improved the Pirates record to 5-1 while Maine fell to 1-4. For Massachusetts, it was its first ever venture into overtime.
They return to New England on Saturday, May 26 at 7 pm to face the Jacksonville Sharks.
