Guard nip Gorman in TAPPS 2-2A opener



The Clash of the East Texas TAPPS Titans did not disappoint. Brook Hill and Bishop TK Gorman both game into a packed Herrington stadium Friday night prepared for a shootout. Both teams ran the spread, and both have storied programs.

Brook Hill was the first to strike, with Jacob Dumesnil 16 yard field goal. Gorman came roaring back, scoring on their second play with a Tristan Saint 63 yard bomb to Hunter Brown. Gorman elected to go for the two point try, scoring and setting the tone early. The Guard fought back, scoring early in the second quarter on a 65 yard Hanks-to-Hale touchdown.

The Guard also elected to go for two, succeeding. Both defensive units were unwilling to bend until Brook Hill's Gabe Lucio scored on a 6 yard rumble, late in the third Quarter.

Zac Wilson and and Chase McDermott had interceptions, but the Guard were unable to capitalize on the turnovers. Starting the final quarter of play, the crusaders scored on another pass.

Saint and his receivers seemed to be jelling. Collin Parks had a scoring strike, and Hart Cameron hauled in a 55 yarder with 2:30 seconds left in the Game that put Gorman back on top.

With 2:23 seconds left in the game, the Guard looked beat. Grant Hanks, however, had other ideas. With 1:36 left in the game, Hanks was behind the line scrambling for safety. He evaded the Crusaders (who had applied excellent pressure all night long) and through a pass out of desperation into the end zone. The ball traveled 50 yards, arcing in the air, into the hands of Jacob Dumesnil. The Game was now in the hands of the guard defense, who had been shredded all night long by Saint's arm. With :30 seconds left in the game, the guard defense knocked down the 4th down pass, sealing the game.
