GC Football: Mildred denies Blooming Grove upset bid, 40-19


MIldred —

The Lions then easily recovered an onside kick as Jared Obenour had nothing but white jerseys around him when he plucked the football out of the air. They fashioned a 12-play drive, featuring two 22-yard Tyler Ellis-to-Brandon Hays completions — the second overcoming a chop block mark off — to take their first lead, 19-13, on a 6-yard run from Morris.

At that point, Blooming Grove owned the momentum.

Sterling, who had 19 yards on nine first half carries, then went 33 on his first second half carry. His third went for 17. After a 15-yard penalty on the Lions, Burnham found Muncy for 7 yards to tie the game.

And Blooming Grove’s offense went silent, as the Lions picked up only eight yards on their next three drives.

Mildred responded, putting three straight scoring drives together, getting touchdown runs of 13, 14 and 40 yards from Sterling, the last with 9:33 to go in the fourth.

Morris led Blooming Grove with 156 yards. He had 100 on seven carries at the half.

    The Cowboys started training camp the same week that Robert Newhouse died.
    In a way, that’s very unfortunate for Jerry. Thinking back to the “Human Bowling Ball” and the teams of that era might lead to the inevitable comparisons to today’s product on the field.

  • weights.jpg GC Football: Blooming Grove's Williams expects to win

    His father was a head coach for years at Pecos High and his brother-in-law is the head football coach at DeSoto, but Lawrence Williams Jr., a man who loves coaching football, never had any ideas about being the head man.
    “I love coaching,'' said Williams as he sat at his desk in Blooming Grove, where he became the Lions' head coach this summer. “I just never thought about being the head coach and I never applied to be a head coach. With this job I can still coach.''
