Pirates force turnovers in 27-8 win over Bulldogs

by Staff Writer

DUNEDIN- Other than in one preseason victory against the Lake County Storm in December, 2017, the Dunedin Pirates have yet to win a home game at Dunedin Memorial Stadium.

That was up until this past Saturday night when the Pirates welcomed the Broward Bulldogs into town. Dunedin has previously faced some of the toughest teams in the FFA and were able to take advantage of being a battle tested group.

Dunedin (3-3) picked off five passes and got a big performance from quarterback Tim Dallaire, as the Pirates rolled to a 27-8 victory. Dunedin will this Saturday face the Southwest Florida Gladiators (5-1) at Lakewood Ranch Park in Bradenton.

Willie Jenkins Jr. and Malik Cobb both had big nights in the secondary, as the former picked off three passes and the latter had two. It would be Dallaire that led the charge on offense, with the rookie throwing for 176 yards and three touchdowns.

Alex Jennings led all receivers with 106 yards and Eric Vitale rushes for 44 yards on 12 carries and also scored a touchdown.
