Grant 27, Beaverton 20 Monday, September 10, 2007

Grant running back Karl Acker (no. 20) gets by Beaverton's Ryan Walker Sept. 7 on his way to the end zone in the first quarter of the Generals' 27-20 win over the Beavers. Acker's 35-yard run came less than five minutes into the game.

Grant's home field doesn't have any lights, and that's a good thing for the photographers as they play all of their games in the afternoon when the sun is out.

Depending which poll you read, Grant was ranked second in the state going into last Friday's game vs. unranked Beaverton. They beat the Beavers, 27-20, but it wasn't pretty. A botched field goal allowed Beaverton to tie the score at 13 just before half time. Penalties, fumbles, and an interception in the end zone contributed to Grant's problems.

Down 14 points with less than two minutes to go, Beaverton put together a drive deep into Generals territory, but Andre Broadous intercepted a pass in the end zone to end the game.

After last week's games, Grant (1-0) is ranked 3rd in the Coaches poll and 5th in the AP poll. Beaverton (1-1) remains unranked.

This is my favorite shot from the game. I put it, and some of my other favorite football images on the Trillium website (here).
