Our Zimmerer Kubota Country Roads takes us to to Gainesville. Very wet senior night in Gainesville.
Van Alstyne QB Dakota Howard, with nice blocking from that O-line including Zachary Thomas and Grant Wittman - 48 yards to the house. 7-zip visiting Panthers.
Gainesville stopped to 2-straight 3-and-outs when Howard does it again. This one off the right side and in. 14-nothing still mid first quarter.
But that's when the lightning delay hits.
But that 30-minute stop didn't stop Van Alstyne, only delayed the party. Howard up top to Jaxon Skinner. That sets up 6 more. 35-nothing Panthers.
In fact, STILL first half. Gainesville needed SOMETHING. Coaches kid Cade Searcy back to pass, but check out BIG defensive lineman Colby Hayes! The lineman's dream. He picks it off and rumbles back the other way for a few more yards. 55-12 at the HALF!
That's more than enough for Van Alystne. 65-18 your final. Panthers clinch second place in the district in a big way.
