Gaither closed their homecoming week with a win over the Leto Falcons, 55-0.

The Cowboys controlled the game from start to finish, scoring six touchdowns in the first half and two in the second. The Falcons were unable to maintain possession, turning the ball over three times and punting on almost every drive.

Gaither was able to score four rushing TDs, three receiving TD and returned an interception for a TD.

Strong safety and kicker Hunter Mintzer was perfect during the evening, making all seven PATs.

The leading rushers for the Cowboys were: senior Jeromy Reid, who scored two TDs and averaged 34.4 yards per carry; senior running back Jaedin Andrews, who scored on each of his two carries; sophomore running back Jaedin Mendez, who carried the ball two times for a total of 72 yards. The Cowboys had a season high 312 yards rushing.

The Cowboy defense also reached a season high of 10 sacks in one game for a total of 42 yards lost.

After the win over the Falcons, Gaither is now 2-1 against 7A District 8 teams and is ranked third in District 8 over Wiregrass Ranch. Gaither is heading to Wiregrass Ranch next week to take on the Bulls in competition for the third-place spot.
