Wheelersburg senior quarterback Eddie Miller made his last encounter against Ironton a memorable one. Miller executed the no-huddle spread offense to near perfection in the first half when the Pirates scored seven times. He threw four touchdown passes and ran for two scores to power the Pirates to a 49-12 win over the Fighting Tigers in the season opener for both schools Friday night at Tanks Memorial Stadium.
