Gorman disposes of Sierra Vista, readies for showdown at De La Salle

Bishop Gorman High 63-0 victory Thursday against visiting Sierra Vista was the appetizer to the school’s biggest game of the season next week.

The Gaels travel to Northern California to face De La Salle High, which won a national record 151 consecutive games from 1992 to 2003 and has four times won the national title in the last 12 years.

“We talked about how this compared to a heavyweight fighter,” Gorman coach Tony Sanchez said. “We told them that if you win and play well, you will get a shot at a title. This is a fight (against Sierra Vista) people expected us to win. This was our last week to sharpen up.”

Shaquille Powell had 180 yards and four touchdowns on eight carries and quarterback Anu Solomon completed 8 of 10 passes with three touchdowns. Gorman, like it did last week in a blowout win against Clark, held its first string out of the second half.

Jamir Tillman, one of six sophomore offensive starters, added three catches and a touchdown. Senior Evan Zeger also had a receiving touchdown.

“Last week (against Clark), I didn’t think we played well at all,” Sanchez said. “Tonight we played well.”
