HAMILTON - This past Friday, the 4-3 Hamilton Aggies hosted the 4-2 Gordo Green Wave. The Aggies searched to snap their three-game losing streak while the Green Wave rolled into Sargent Stadium ready to bounce back from their 24-21 loss to the Northridge Jaguars. Gordo dominated from the kickoff and never let up, finishing the game with a huge 54-0 win.
Gordo received the opening kickoff and immediately marched downfield. Each first down was accompanied by another first down, and there was little resistance to the progress from the offense. The Green Wave burned through the defense, capping the drive off with a touchdown through a 20-yard pass. With still 7:57 left in the first stanza, Gordo took a 7-0 lead over the Aggies.
The Aggie offense almost answered the call, but their drive fell short on fourth down at the Gordo 17. The Hamilton defense held strong as they immediately forced a Green Wave punt before the second quarter began. An empty Aggie drive led to an assertive drive from Gordo, leading to a 34-yard rush en route to a 25-yard touchdown reception from Tanner Bailey to JJ O’Bryant. The PAT split the uprights, and with 8:21 left in the second period, Gordo extended their lead to 14-0.
