Rebels.

The Dragons jumped out 6-0 early on a first possession 3 play, 66 yard
drive, as Sr. RB Anthony Roe followed a 51 yard run with an 11 yard
jaunt to pay dirt. The extra point try was wide just :57 into the game.

Bridges pass and rambled 32 yards to the house on a pick 6 and with a 2
point Austin Brewer run, it was 21-14 with 10:09 left.

A 3 and out gave the Dragons one more shot with 2:00 remaining as they
started from the PHC 47 following a short punt. They moved it to the 21
before they were stopped on downs and the Rebels survived.

The Dragons finished with 32 rushing plays for 255 yards and Lalumandier
was 7-19 for 72 to give SG 327 yards of total offense. PHC was held to

play, 52 yard drive, as the 3rd quarter ended for a 28-6 lead. He ended
the night with 149 yards on 18 carries. The Dragons had 44 carries as a
team for 307 yards and only one pass completion. The Trojans finished

and Lalumandier hit Giesler on a 4th down crossing route for a 26-15

Oberle over the middle for a TD and a 14-0 lead 18 seconds later.

After stopping the Dragons on 3rd and inches on the following
possession, the Warriors took over at their own 39 following a punt.
