An unbelievable night for Wildcats quarterback Bobby Weber gave Keystone a 16-7 victory Friday over Black River as the Pirates celebrated homecoming in wet conditions.

Weber threw for 192 yards, including a 58-yard touchdown pass to Ty Cowling. The QB also put one in the end zone on a 13-yard run. Joey Grega had a field goal.

The Pirates’ lone scoring play came on a 19-yard run by Jacob Campbell with a PAT by Corey Bartolic.

Campbell finished with 74 yards on 15 attempts to lead his team. Cowling’s combined 80 yards and another 59 by Trey Minnich gave the advantage to Keystone, which also found a star in Kyler Staller. He had 51 yards on just three receptions.
