It looked as if Gordo’s season opener with Oakman may get delayed or even postponed, as a violent thunderstorm swept through the area just around an hour before kickoff.
However, when the clock struck 7 p.m., the weather was all clear and there wasn’t as much as a rain drop during the contest.
Gordo played sloppy early offensively and gave up big plays on defense, but settled in before halftime to build a 34-13 lead at intermission, in route to a 48-19 win.
