The Warriors had a shaky start as Gilmer took charge early scoring two touchdowns quickly in the first quarter. Unfazed, Pocahontas domi- nated the second quarter led by freshman, Jesse Burdette, who grabbed the first touchdown for the Warriors, on a 45 yard run. Not long after, Jonathan Taylor scored the second touch- down off an eight yard pass from Mark Burdette.
