Putnam City opened district play with its first win since 2017, as the Pirates (1-3, 1-0 District 6A-II-1) beat Putnam West (0-4, 0-1) 14-10 Friday night.

After going 0-10 in his first season, Jon Garfield got his first win as Putnam City’s head coach. He was more happy about what the win meant for his players. 

“I’m just more excited for the kids,” Garfield said. “I think more than anything having some happy faces at the end of the game, knowing the work they put in, watching it finally pay off, I’m just ecstatic and excited for them.”

It was a hard fought win, Garfield said, and he hopes it propels his team going forward. The Pirates will be back in action Oct. 4 against Choctaw (2-2, 0-1).
