Buffs Finish Season in Caldwell
Final GMS Football Finishes Season in Caldwell
The Middle School Buffaloes traveled to Caldwell for the final games of the season. Due to Caldwell only having one 8th grade team, the Buffs played three games. In the first game, quarterback, Daven Birnbaum connected with receiver Malik Moore on a 60 yard catch and run. Running back, Zach White, capped off the Buffalo drive with a 6 yard touchdown run, Birnbaum would add on the 2 pt. conversion with a nice run. The Buffalo defense was solid the whole game, not allowing the Hornets to score. The Buffs won 8-0. The Buffs finished district play with a 4-0 record, and are the 2014 District Champions! Congratulations!
The 7th grade A team came up against a solid Hornet team. This was a very physical game, and the Buffs came up short this time, 34-16. Alex Delatorre scored two touchdowns for the Buffs, the first was a 16 yard run and the second was a 9 yard run. Justin Gonzales and Delatorre each scored a 2 pt. conversion. Running back, Chad Fox ran the ball hard for the Buffs the whole night gaining lots of tough yards for the team.
The 8th graders all played together this week, and they also played a tough game and came out on top with a 14-8 win. Jadarius Johnson scored on a 15 yard run, and then added the 2 pt. conversion. Sidarius Johnson recovered a Hornet fumble and took it 60 yards for another Buffalo touchdown. Running back Vicente Segura ran the ball well for the Buffs and also played well on defense.
“All of the Buffalo teams competed very well this year and showed great improvement along the way. They were fun to coach this year!” Coach Strickland
