The Hannibal Pirates hosted the Moberly Spartans in Week 7 of the Missouri High School Football season. After a 46 - 12 win, Hannibal improved to 6-1 on the season, while Moberly fell to 3 - 4.

Hannibal got off to an early lead and moved ahead of the Spartans 25 - 0 at the half. Moberly was able to find the end zone twice in the third quarter, but that was all the offense the Spartans could generate. Pirate scoring was led by four touchdowns by Jerry McBride; quarterback Austin Kirby had two.

The Pirates will travel to Marshall in Week 8. Moberly will host Boonville.
