SCHEDULE CHANGE - GCHS Titans to host undefeated Tygarts Valley this Friday, Sept. 25
By Jamie Mullins,
Gilmer County vowed to put Week Two behind them as they hit the road, last Friday, Sept. 18, to challenge Wahama in their first away contest of the year.
After a huge opening week, and a win over Webster, Wirt County had held them to less than 25 offensive yards in the Week Two shutout. They needed a big night to erase that memory.
Four quarters, 40 points, and 519 offensive yards later, the Titans were back in the winning column.
The first quarter was slow as GCHS filled out their opponent; however, with just over a minute remaining, quarterback Ean Hamric broke free for a 29-yard touchdown run to put Gilmer on the board first, 7-0.
Gilmer would score again with an air strike from Hamric to fellow junior Avery Chapman, before Wahama would answer to cut into their lead, 14-6.
With less than two minutes remaining in the half, GCHS pushed down the field for another Hamric and Chapman connection, this time for 25 yards, to take a, 21-6, lead into the intermission.
The duo would strike again early in the third for a 58-yard touchdown pass, 27-6.
