Bay Port has outscored its opponents this season so far, 212-18, as it traveled to Pulaski, where the Red Raiders look to top the Pirates for the first time in seven years.

With a 28-0 shutout of Fox River Classic Conference foe Pulaski Friday night, Bay Port improved to 5-0.

"Great football team, I mean hats off to Pulaski," said Pirates head coach Gary Westerman. "They're really good. They're going to make some noise yet this year. But I'm really excited. Our kids prepared hard this week. That's what it's all about. We won the game Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, not just tonight."

Senior receiver Cody Lindquist said he went to Pulaski schools before beginning high school at Bay Port, so Friday's victory was even sweeter for him.

"A little bit (of trash talk), yeah. But not too bad," Lindquist said. "(We get the) final word. The scoreboard's the final word, I'd say."

In the first quarter, Pirates QB Jake Plummer gave his team the lead with a five-yard TD run.

"You know, it feels great," Plummer said after the win. "I think we're a great team and we can go somewhere in the playoffs, and I'm looking forward to it."

In the second, Isaiah Gash punched it in from a yard out for his 14th touchdown of the season for a 14-0 Pirates lead going into halftime. 

In the second half, Gash ran in for his second TD of the game.
