Friday Night Finish….
It doesn’t seem like we are really finished yet on this night….
How can we be done and how will anybody be able to wind down after the wild night we just came out of??? At Western Guiford, it had to be on the biggest nights in Hornets history with the stadium dedication ceremony and then ‘The Finish’ on the field….
That finish at Western Guilford was just Crazy….Western led 10-0 and then Southwest Guilford came fighting back and made it 10-6, after missing the two-point conversion attempt….Then SWG scores again to make it 13-10 Cowboys and then that’s the fun really began…WG scores on a super-long run by Kevin Gehsmann(59 yards) and then SWG comes right back on the next possesion and scores on a 30-yard pass play from QB Devonte Cross to Jeremiah Brown….17-13 WG becomes 20-17 SWG and it all happened very quick…WG gets the back on their own 30 and then the Hornets get another long run from Gehsmann and a pass from Hornet QB Tevan Evans to Keenan Stevens and the pass from Evans to Stevens moved the ball on down to the SWG 12-yard line and then with 6.2 seconds to play and the WG Hornets down 20-17, QB Evans hooks up with Stevens for the huge pass completion along the sideline in the left end zone and it was “Stevens With The Catch” and he stayed inbounds and WG goes up 24-17 with the Gehsmann PAT kick….
Such a wild and crazy turn of events….In that last 2:02 of the game, the score just went back-and-forth and WG pulled it out on “Doug Henderson Stadium” dedication night at Western Guilford…(The Doug Henderson influence was sure evident at WG on this night.)
Mr. Henderson spoke at halftime during the dedication ceremony and he challenged the Hornet team to bring it back and they did, as they kept coming back and it all ends up with the delivery of their first win of the season….Take nothing away from SWG, I would to see Jeremiah Brown’s stats for the game, the kid had a whale of a game and Keenan Stevens on that last drive of the game for WG, the young man was money, all money in the bank and Tevan Evans did not give up, the kid continued to battle all night long….Kevin Gehsmann, what can you say about this young man? One of the hardest and most determined runners that you will ever see….
And lost Western lost the starting center, Andy Dixon on that lost drive of the game and the Todd kid came in and it is not easy when you are switching centers when your team is running the QB in the shotgun or the pistol….
Some kind of game and it sounds like we had some of the same things going on over at Northwest Guilford tonight…A character test for NWG and they passed the test with the win over a very well thought-of and tough Reidsville team…
Sounds like Dudley got it done the hard way down in Durham tonight…12-9 Panthers over the Hillside Hornets was the score we heard…
Word was that Northern Guilford got off to a slow start and rolled down at Burlington Williams….Smith came up empty at Burlington Cummings and Page falls to (0-4) and you turn around and look and the Ragsdale Tigers are at (3-1) and still getting the job done without starting QB Alec Cobb…On that NG-BW game I caught the score that the Hawks and the Bulldogs were tied at 7-7 and then Northern runs off 48 unanswered points and wins the game 55-7…
I still a lot could be learned from a meeting between High Point Central and the Dudley Panthers….I was on here blowing it out last year and Jamiel Mack still is the top QB in our area….That final from Jamieson Stadium tonight is showing HP Central 52, Grimsley 13….Wonder how many yards Mack had on the ground and I bet the ‘Mack Air Attack’ was equally impressive….
Here’s a question for you….How many rushing yards for Reggie Gallasy tonight and how did Reggie do in the touchdowns department???
At one stage late in the game Durham Hillside led Dudley 9-6….NEG was on top of Rockingham County 6-2 with just two minutes left in their game at Wentworth….
