The Gaither Cowboys followed their preseason win against Jesuit last week with a loss on the road against the Chamberlain Chiefs.

Gaither struggled to stay on offense the entire game, with four of their seven possessions ending with a punt or turnover on downs.

The Chiefs running back broke through several tackles and the Cowboy secondary to score a 67-yd TD early in the first quarter. The PAT was missed.

Chamberlain’s offense dominated the first half, maintaining possession for a majority of the second quarter and scoring a TD with a deep pass to the corner of the end zone. After missing the 2-point conversion attempt, the score was 12-0 going into the half.

The Chiefs scored another TD and the Cowboys gave up a safety in the third quarter.

Gaither’s defense could not get off the field and the offense had a hard time converting on third down in the second half.

Despite the outcome of the game, the Cowboys are confident about the rest of the season.

“We [didn’t play] as well as I thought we would but going forward I think we’re going to have a very good season… I have high expectations on going farther in the playoffs than the team did last year,” said junior fullback Jake Karsen.

The final score in the Carrollwood Classic was 21-0.
