Verndale football team gets on track


The Verndale Pirates blew off an opening week loss to Wheaton-Herman-Norcross Friday by crushing a young Ashby team 44-8 on soggy night for football.

Mike Mahlen's senior-dominated team amassed 24 first half points and added 14 in the second half for a commanding 38-0 lead in the steady rain.
