Gordo Picks Up Big Region Win at Oakman

By Brian HamiltonSports Correspondent

Gordo found itself in an unfamiliar position last week after falling to region foe Winfield, taking their record to 1-2. The Greenwave righted the ship on Friday, however, going to Oakman and coming away with a crucial region win behind Troy Garner Jr.’s 214 rushing yards and three touchdowns.

Jy’Tavian Billups put Gordo on the board first with a 42-yard touchdown run with 7:53 remaining in the first quarter. Oakman’s Christian Hubbard then answered with a one-yard touchdown run with 1:55 remaining in the period. The Wildcat extra-point was no good, leaving the Greenwave with a 7-6 lead at the end of the first quarter.

Troy Garner Jr. would score his first touchdown of the night on a one-yard touchdown run with 8:20 left in the second quarter for a 13-6 lead. Joshua Darling would then add a one-yard touchdown run of his own just before halftime, giving Gordo a 20-6 advantage at the intermission. Darling’s touchdown capped a 13-play, 71-yard drive.
