Second quarter good for Gators

Second quarter good for Gators
Glenwood now 8-1




Glenwood used a big second quarter and a stalwart defense to keep its winning streak going with a 21-6 victory over Pike Liberal Arts on Friday night on a very soggy and muddy field.

The Gators scored all of their points in the second quarter as they improved their record to 8-1. Pike fell to 3-6.

As usual for Glenwood, three different backs scored the three touchdowns. Marcus Woods started the second quarter off with a 6-yard run and then quarterback Branden Williams added a 15-yard touchdown two minutes later.

The third touchdown was by fullback Cody Dykes in the second period and Austin Allison hit all three extra points to make it 21-0 Gators at the half.

Williams led Glenwood with 70 yards followed by Woods with 40. The Gators could only manage 148 yards rushing on the wet field and an additional 48 passing for a total of 193 yards of offense.

Pike's Jarnell Foster scored the only touchdown for the Patriots on a 6-yard run in the third quarter. The Patriots were driving for a second possible score late the third period, but Woods' interception thwarted the effort.

The only other near score came in the fourth quarter, but Allison missed on a 35-yard field-goal attempt.
