The Henderson Bowl has remained the most significant game of the season for these two schools. Green Valley leads the all-time series 13-8 thanks to its domination in the mid-to-late 1990’s, when the Gators won six games in a row. Basic had won the past three contests, the most consecutive games it has won in the rivalry, until last year when the Gators reclaimed the championship.
Green Valley :31
Green Valley did a fantastic job on Basic standout receiver Devonte Boyd who entered the game with 23 catches for 491 yards and nine TDs in the first three games. He was held to only two catches for 15 yards; including a 9-yard TD pass that put Basic up, 20-10. But Green Valley’s defense kept Basic without a first down on its final four possessions. Green Valley’s Hernandez rushed for 50 yards and a touchdown in the second half and had a key kickoff return, and Lopez ran for two second-half scores to lead the Gators to 31-27 victory over Basic.
