Football team off to 2-0 start in Big East
Brad Birch threw for 358 yards and two touchdowns, Jaquon Reynolds added three short TD runs and Steve Jenkins and Kenny Lewis each surpassed 100 yards receiving as Gateway raced past the Mustangs, 49-14, at Mustangs Stadium.
“We had that nice, natural break from the first couple of games to now getting into the conference,” Gateway coach Don Holl said.
“At the end of the day, if you win your conference, you’re in the playoffs. Not that we wanted to lose any of those early games, and credit to the teams (Mt. Lebanon, Woodland Hills, North Hills) that beat us, but we felt that we could play better with the guys we had out there and the guys we had coming back. There’s still a long way to go, but I like the trajectory.”
Gateway led 28-7 at the break and added a pair of scores in the second half to put the mercy rule running clock into affect.
