Last night, the Cowboys lost to the Plant Panthers at home, 34-44.

On the first two plays of the game, Plant quarterback Tucker Gleason connected with Leonard Parker to score a 65-yard touchdown and a 2-point conversion.

Gaither was forced to punt in their first possession, and Parker secured another pass from Gleason for a 39-yard TD. Gaither’s defense was able to stop the 2-point conversion attempt, and Plant was quickly ahead, 0-14.

Cowboy quarterback Tony Bartalo passed to Jeromy Reid for a 40- yard TD, cutting the Panthers’ lead in half with 1:38 left in the quarter.

Plant scored three touchdowns in the second quarter thanks to running back Walter Wilbon and Gleason, who ran many successful keepers throughout the game. Gaither pushed back with a 77-yard TD to receiver Adrian Higgins. The half closed with the Cowboys trailing 14-35.

Gaither put up a hard fight for the rest of the game, finding their way to the endzone three more times and keeping Plant’s offense from scoring during the entire fourth quarter.

The game ended with a final score of 34-44.

Offensive Highlights: Tony Bartalo, junior QB, 229 yards passing, three TDs. Adrian Higgins, senior WR, 158 yards receiving, one TD.

Defensive Highlights: Chance Coleman, junior LB, fumble recovery returned 32 yards.
