GMA Football Sweeps Salado
GMS Football Sweeps Salado to Open District Play
This past Thursday, the Giddings Middle School football team hosted the Salado Eagles on Homecoming night. All of our players did a great job and we came out with all 3 wins on the night. The 7th grade B team started the night with an awesome 24-0 win. Quarterback, Daven Birnbaum had a 5 yard touchdown run, a 99 yard touchdown run, he ran in a 2 point conversion, and he threw two passes for 2 pt. conversions. Running back, Justin Gonzales scored on a 53 yard run, and receivers Hayden Els and Malik Moore each caught passes for 2pt. conversions. The defense was solid, not allowing the Eagle offense to score.
The 7th grade A team also did a great job Thursday night, winning their game 34-0. Chad Adams had a really good game, catching a 22 yard pass from Alex Delatorre, running in an 8 yard touchdown and getting a pick-6 on defense from 70 yards out. Quarterback Alex Delatorre had an 8 yard touchdown run, the touchdown pass to Adams, and he also ran in a 2 pt. conversion. Chandler Hosch scored up the middle on a 7 yard touchdown run, and receiver Cade Kauffman caught a pass for a 2 pt. conversion.
The 8th grade played as one team this week, and they came out with a good win, 8-0. It was definitely a defensive battle, with both teams playing really well on defense. Free Safety, Jaylon Joiner had an interception, Linebacker Noah Harris made several tackles, and defensive tackle Brayson Wheaton played hard for the Buffs. Running back Vicente Segura ran hard all night and scored on a 65 yard run. Jadarius Johnson added the 2 point conversion to give the Buffs the 8-0 lead. All of our guys played hard tonight and we hope to take that energy with us next week when the teams travel to La Grange to take on the Leopards.
