Football: Gibbs 19, Spoto 13

RIVERVIEW — Gibbs won its third straight road game of the season as the Gladiators held off Spoto 19-13 on Friday night.

Spoto got on the board first as senior quarterback Jaylon Davis connected with Geronimo Allison for an 80-yard touchdown. Quarterback Devontae White answered on the Gladiators' opening drive with a 45-yard pass to Gary Simon. Gibbs' defense stepped up in the first quarter when defensive end Maurice Hall intercepted Davis' pass and ran in for a 55-yard touchdown.

In the second quarter, Gibbs (3-0) converted on fourth and goal as White threw a 5-yard pass to Devontay Williams to give the Gladiators a 19-6 halftime lead. After a scoreless third quarter, Spoto's Timothy Adams cut Gibbs' lead in half as he scored a 6-yard touchdown on a run in the fourth quarter. But the Spartans (1-1) didn't get any closer.

White was 7-for-14 with 109 yards and two touchdowns.
