Gordon Tech Running Back Chris Smith
Gordon Tech Rams defeated the St. Joseph High School Crusaders Friday night at Elmhurst College 30 to 12. The game was mared by multipled turnovers by both teams. Three first half turnovers by Gordon Tech kept the game close in the first half giving hope to a much improved St. Joe's squad. GT lead 8 to 6 at the half but the Rams dominated the third quarter adding two touchdowns. St. Joe's did not give up and added a late touchdown after a GT fumbled pitch play. GT answered with a late touchdown of its own by QB Scott Calderon to close out the game.
Gordon Tech faces a tough Hales Fransican team at Lane Stadium on Friday in a rematch of last year's classic game. GT's victory at Hales last year gave it a share of the Chicago Catholic League White Division championship. You can still see that game on the internet at highschoolcube.com
