Last Saturday, Bishop Gorman destroyed Bishop Manogue in the high school football State Championship at Sam Boyd Stadium. Both teams fought through the stacked brackets because of their ability to recruit players from all over town.

On November 24, Bishop Gorman from the Desert Region faced off against Liberty from the same region. Gorman made quick work of the opposition, beating them 42 – 28, and pushing themselves to the Championship. On the other end, Bishop Manogue from the Northern Region played Arbor View of the Mountain Region. This was a little more of a struggle as Bishop Manogue only beat Arbor 42 – 34, with a late drive by Arbor. Regardless of the scores, the finals were set as Bishop Gorman would be favored to win against Bishop Manogue.

Come game day, you could feel the intensity in the air. With many of the player’s last game coming up, it was a do or die mentality. Gorman came out with a sense of aggression that could not be matched by Manogue. Bishop Gorman would jump to an early lead that they would hold on and add to for the rest of the game. The end score would prove our predictions correct as it was a blowout of 69 – 28.

Gorman and Bishop Manogue both had an amazing season with Gorman going 10-3 and having an undefeated playoff record which is 7-0. On the other hand, Bishop Manogue had a better season compared to Gorman going 11-3 but they went 4-2 in the playoffs with Gorman, making for an unforgettable game and season.
