Gibraltar scored early and often as they dominated the Gillett Tigers 62-8 Friday night.
The Vikings got the scoring going right away as Braden Kita ripped off a 55 yard touchdown run that went all the way to the endzone for a quick 7-0 lead. Kita would find Will Friendenfels on back to back drives and before you know it it was 28-0 Gibraltar after the first quarter.
This one would continue to be all Gibraltar though, as they would pile on 20 more in the second quarter, with 3 rushing touchdowns. Hayden Reetz would be pushed out of bounds after a 25 yard run, and he would finish it off from 1 yard out to make it 34-0 after a fake field goal pass was broken up. Braden Kita would break off two more huge runs, resulting in touchdowns of 53 and 49 yards each. The Vikings would go into the half on top of the Tigers 48-0.
Gillett would respond on their opening drive of the 3rd quarter, with Quarterback Jesse DeBauch finding Tight End Brandon DeBauch for a 46 yard touchdown on their only touchdown of the night to make it 48-8.
Giuseppe Mercier would find the endzone from 4 yards out before Braden Sitte would read Jesse DeBauch like a book and run a pick 6 back for 60 yards and put the finishing touches on a 62-8 blowout of the Gillett Tigers.
The player of the game for the Gibraltar Vikings was once again Braden Kita, who threw for 179 yards and three touchdowns, but was also effective on the ground running for 157 yards and 3 touchdowns as well.
