COLQUITT, GA (WALB) - The Miller County Pirates overcame a 21 point first half deficit to defeat Calvary Day last Friday night.

The Pirates are the WALB team of week.

Miller County shut out the Cavaliers in the second half to earn the 34-21 victory.

Head coach Frank Killingsworth says he told his players at half time to dig deep, the Pirates responded with 27 second half points to get the win on the road in state playoffs.

 Frank Killingsworth said."Its different if you go out there and you play your absolute best and lose is what we told them. But when you go out and play your absolute worst, which is pretty much what we did in the first quarter and lose, you don't wanna go out that way."

Miller County is at #1 Clinch County in the second round of the GHSA Class A playoffs Friday.
