Page 42, Grimsley 14 (10/9/09)

October 10, 2009

In this 50-year-old rivalry matchup, Page was the favored team with a record of 5-1, with 30 seniors on their roster, and having won the rivalry game two years in a row. But the Whirlies of Grimsley High School had hopes of sinking the Page Pirates.

Page scored early in the first quarter on a rushing drive from Drew Rogers. Grimsley, not to be outdone, answered with an 85-yard touchdown run from Lashawn Brown to tie the game 7-7. Just one minute later, Page scored another touchdown, bringing the game 14-7. Page would score once more before the half on a touchdown from Justin Gorman, later named the United States Marine Corps Rivalry Series MVP. The teams left the field with Page leading 21-7 at the half.

The Whirlies quickly cut the 21-7 deficit to 21-14 with a second half touchdown, as the Grimsley crowd leaped to their feet and cheered on their team.

Justin Gorman of Page came through with the big play; a 55-yard touchdown securing the game for the Pirates. The fans went wild with the “three-peat” and the team took home the W with the final score 42-14.
