Football: Chamberlain 19, Gaither 17

TAMPA — Chamberlain senior Jermaine Gilyard scored on an 8-yard double reverse in the final 1.5 seconds as the Chiefs won 19-17 over Gaither, which had erased a fourth-quarter deficit.

"Last year we would be in that same situation and we wouldn't get it, this year it's different," Gilyard said.

The Chiefs rushed 54 times though star running back Xavier Johnson left in the first half. Juniors Dakari Highsmith (19 carries, 120 yards) and Nick McNeal (15 for 56) stepped in as the Chiefs stayed alive in Class 7A. District 6.

The Chiefs led 13-10 when the Cowboys faced third and 8 from the Chamberlain 8-yard line. A shotgun snap squirted between junior quarterback Alex McGough's legs but he scooped it, scrambled left and hit senior Marcus Brown in the end zone to give the Cowboys a 17-13 lead.
