Homecoming was just the medicine that Perryville needed. The Pirates got their mojo back and crushed Portageville 48-6 on Saturday in their annual homecoming game. The victory snapped the Pirates’ three game losing streak and put them back on the winning side of things, improving their record to 4-4. The Pirates did a majority of that on the ground as Perryville junior quarterback Evan Daugherty had 150 yards rushing and four touchdowns on 10 carries, and he was aided by junior Charlie Ussery, who had 70 yards rushing on 10 carries and three touchdowns. Caleb Gremaud filled in with 51 yards on eight carries.
