Grant 58, Newberg 0 Saturday, September 15, 2007

Grant's Paul McCoy braces for Taylor Burrows' tackle in the second quarter of the Generals' 58-0 victory over the Newberg. McCoy scored the opening touchdown on a 67-yard pass from Andre Broadous on the Generals' first snap of the game.

After last week's narrow, sloppy victory over Beaverton, Grant got back on track Sept. 14 against a weaker
opponent from Newberg.

The Tigers received the ball on the opening kickoff, but Grant's defense held them to nil on that possession. That was as close as Newberg (0-3) ever got.

Grant (2-0) went with their dangerous Broadous-to-McCoy combination on the first snap, and just like that the Generals were up 7-0.

Grant's defense didn't allow Newberg so much as a first down until midway through the second quarter. Meanwhile, the offense didn't miss a play, finding the end zone on their first or second snap on all but one possession in the first half. (They needed three plays to find the end zone for their sixth touchdown.)

The Generals were up 21-0 after the first quarter, and 42-0 at half. A safety and two more touchdowns added up to a convincing 58-0 win for the third-ranked team in the state.

Grant looks like a fun team to shoot, not to mention that their home games are played in the day time so you don't have to worry about poorly lit high school football fields.

That's why I picked that game! Too bad it was their last "home" game of the season.
