“Up front we had a lot of good blocking. On the option they bit on the fakes and that opened up so many plays,” Huber said.
Huber had touchdown runs of 21 and 3 yards in the first quarter and threw touchdown passes of 3 and 11 yards to junior receiver Taylor Spencer as Gorman built an early 28-0 lead in the second quarter. Huber was 7 of 15 for 88 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for 74 yards.
The Gaels improved to 7-1, 4-0 in the Southwest Division, while the Mountain Lions lost their third consecutive game and dropped to 2-4 on the season and 1-3 in the division.
Gorman rushed for 265 yards, led by senior running back Kawika Antolin, who gained 93 yards and a touchdown.
“The line hooked up well and came together,” Antolin said. “As seniors it was great to win homecoming and we came out and worked hard.”
Sierra Vista senior running back Akil Sharp rushed for 103 yards on 17 carries and two touchdowns, but couldn’t keep the Mountain Lions in the game.
“We knew we had to swarm and group tackle him. He has great lateral speed and has a lot of speed if he gets out in the open,” said Huber, who is also a defensive back.
Sierra Vista’s other two scores came on passes of 11 and 5 yards from senior quarterback Jeremy Green to senior receiver Darian Yahyavi. Green went 13 of 20 for 144 yards, while Yahyavi caught eight balls for 123 yards.
