GORDONSVILLE SHUTS OUT OWLS

After a roller coaster ride of events filled the week leading up to the annual rivalry clash between the Smith County High Owls and the Gordonsville High Tigers, the two inter-county adversaries finally took to the gridiron in an unusual Saturday night meeting. The believed to be 87th meeting between the schools went to the Blue-and-White as the Tigers imposed a power rushing attack that racked up 215 yards on 43 attempts and accounted for all four Gordonsville touchdowns as they walked away with a 28-0 victory over the Owls on a rain-soaked field. The game was pushed back to a Saturday night tilt in Carthage after the remnants of Hurricane Laura threatened to bring severe weather to the area last Friday night.
