Tigers deliver third win, honor

National Champions

The Tigers are doing what they do best: beating teams and making headlines. When the GC football team woke up on Sunday morning, they were greeted with headlines the University of Kentucky couldn’t even deliver: they made the front page of the Lexington Herald- Leader.

With the 1991 and 2001 National Championship teams present at the game, it made for a tting end to the homecoming weekend.

The game against Shorter University was the third straight game for GC against a ranked foe, but they didn’t let that give them an excuse to underperform.

The tigers are currently ranked seventh in the polls and are still undefeated. With games coming up against Kentucky Christian College, Campbellsville, Pikeville and West Virginia Tech, things aren’t looking to change.

all about the D, defense that is. The defense only allowed 14 points, which is a bit deceiving because the Shorter defense scored a touchdown late in the rst half on a Kaelin Ammons interception.

In their rst two games, Shorter had gained 480 yards on the ground and 35.5 points per game. GC only gave up 211 on the ground and two scores.

Ammons opened up the scoring early in the rst quarter when he hit Chris Gohman with a 79-yard touchdown catch. At the end of the rst quarter, Jesse Gillham capped the scoring off with a four-yard touchdown run.

Panic ensued for GC in the second quarter when Ammons re-injured his knee (he originally injured it last Saturday). There has been no word on Ammons, who nished the game 8-15 for 167 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

Cameron Smyth took over for Ammons and led the tigers on the only drive they needed to put the game away: he handed off to Naylor who gave a great second effort to get into the endzone.

After a late rally by Shorter, Gohman recovered an onside kick that enabled GC to run out the clock.

This was a big win for GC because it improved their record to 3-0 on the season and gave them another win on homecoming. Their next game is at Kentucky Christian College on Oct. 1 at 1:30 p.m.
