The only score was a 39-yard field goal by Cory Rutkowski. The Gold had actually given up possession earlier, but got the ball back because the Purple had too many men on the field for the punt.
And that's the kind of half it's been.
A few stats:
Willie Griffin has 23 yards on seven carried, while the Brandons -- Johnson and Yakaboski -- each have 10 on three carries.
Never miss a local story.
Leading receiver is D'Andre Goodwin, with four catches for 60 yards.
Linebacker E.J. Savannah, apparently running with the No. 2 defense, leads all tacklers with six ... twice as many as anyone else.
A few observations:
Griffin shows nice little ability to take one stutter step and then break hard for the hole.
Charles Hawkins has two catches, but also two drops including one in end zone.
The Purple tried a fourth and one on their first possession, but Locker fumbled the snap.
Goodwin was flagged for excessive celebration after a 28 yard catch down the sideline over Mesphin Forrester.
Locker was picked late in the half by Quinton Richardson, but on a badly underthrown pass.
Juan Garcia is watching on crutches. His sub, Matt Sedillo, played some center for both teams.
