The Hart Pirates finished the 2021 season with a convincing 54-21 win over the visiting White Cloud Indians.

Hart concluded its season with a 4-5 record, the most wins since 2004, when they finished with an identical 4-5 overall record.

The Hart offense kicked things into high gear, as they had a season high of 515 total yards in offense, led by junior quarterback Kellen Kimes who completed 18-of 28 passes for 309 yards.

The Pirates would rush the ball 21 times for 206 yards. The ground game was led by sophomore Joseluis Andaverde who gained 76 yards on 8 carries and Kimes who would rush for 55 yards on six carries.

The Hart defense was led by junior Zane Thomas with 8 tackles and Andaverde who chipped in with 5 tackles and one interception.

Hart still had slim possibilities of qualifying for the playoffs. They’ll have to wait until Sunday to see if they are in or out.
