    Congratulations to Glasgow on advancing. Was hoping for a Breds win but figured they would be challenged with how the season has been. Not sure on when the last time was that the Breds hasn’t been in the quarterfinals, want to say in the later 90’s.

    From the Glasgow Daily News:

    Glasgow scores 2 straight points, knocks off Newport Central Catholic | News | glasgowdailytimes.com

    Glasgow scores 20 straight points, knocks off Newport Central Catholic

    BY JAY SISKIN jsiskin@glasgowdailytimes.com 17 hrs ago

    GLASGOW — Glasgow head coach Jeff Garmon wanted to use the combination of Tanner Abernathy and Dalvin Smith to his advantage against opposing defenses.

    The strategy paid off.

    Abernathy — who entered the season as the backup quarterback — got the starting nod once again. The talented thrower connected with Smith eight times for 140 yards and four touchdowns, leading Glasgow to a 27-20 win over Newport Central Catholic

    The Thoroughbreds seemed like for most of the night that they would ultimately knock off the Scotties out of the playoffs, leading the game for a total of 38 minutes.

    The Scotties kept chugging along and climbed their way back. The comeback victory earned Glasgow an appearance in the regional championship game for the first since 2012.

    Garmon took no recognition after the game.

    "We got over the hump," Garmon said. "We beat a really good football team tonight. The kids stepped up. Our kids wanted this one and they stepped up. We just wanted a little bit more than what (Newport Central Catholic) did in the end, and I believe that.

    "Hats off to my kids for the heart they showed. The kids deserve all the credit. They played well tonight," Garmon added.

    While Abernathy and Smith were the stars of the night for the offense, the Glasgow defense — with its heels in the dirt from a difficult first half — held the Newport Central Catholic offense scoreless in the fourth quarter.

    "Our defense played lights out after we came out of the locker room," Garmon said. "We made some plays. It was a lot of people making plays on that side of the ball. It wasn't just one or two people. It was an entire group effort."

    Kyle Kelly — who finished the game with 148 yards on 24 carries and three touchdowns — was held to just 52 yards on 10 carries in the second half.

    "We came out and hit him," Garmon said. "For the most part we were doing a solid job, but we weren't finishing tackles. We decided we were going to come out and just hit him harder. That's how we were going to go down. We were going to hit him and make him earn it and that's what (the defense) did."

    Newport CC was able to visit the end-zone first with a seven-yard run by Kelly in the opening quarter. Glasgow was shut out in the period, but found some momentum to begin the second. Abernathy hit Smith on a post pattern for 39 yards, giving the Scotties an early taste of the lead at 7-6.

    The Thoroughbreds were threatening on the ensuing drive, but Newport CC quarterback Paul Kremer under-threw his receiver in the end-zone, allowing Smith to run under the ball and grab it for an interception.

    On offense, Glasgow made it interesting on its fifth, sixth, and seventh drives. The Thoroughbreds used two turnovers to jump out to a 13-point advantage.

    Abernathy was intercepted by Kyle Losey after the ball slipped through the hands of Smith, which led to an 18-yard touchdown run by Kelly that gave Newport CC a 13-7 lead with 6:08 in the second quarter. Moments later, Abernathy broke off for a 38-yard run to the Newport CC 39-yard-line, but was picked off in the end-zone three plays later.

    On the first drive of the second half, the sophomore quarterback had the ball ripped out on a read-option play. That turnover eventually led to a 34-yard scamper to the end-zone by Kelly — a run that gave the Thoroughbreds a 20-7 lead at the 8:10 mark of the third quarter.

    "It's very uncharacteristic of him," Garmon said in regards to the three turnovers by his sophomore quarterback. "But it was a big ball-game for a sophomore and I'm proud of him for keeping his head up. We needed him and he stepped up."

    Then the switch was flipped.

    Glasgow drove down the field in nine plays to cut the Newport CC lead at 20-13 with 5:26 to go in the third quarter. The drive was capped off with a five-yard pitch-and-catch from Abernathy to Smith.

    On their ensuing drive, the Scotties responded once again. After forcing a three-and-out by the Newport CC offense, Glasgow found itself with a distance to go, starting at its own five-yard-line.

    No problem.

    A 37-yard catch by Griffin Murphy put Glasgow in Thoroughbred territory at the 44. Four plays later, the Newport CC failed to stop the duo of Abernathy and Smith, as they connected on a 29-yard score.


    But after no luck on the two-point conversion, the Scotties found themselves trailing 20-19.

    No problem, again.

    After another three-and-out stop by the defense, Glasgow was handed great field position at the Newport CC 48 — but it took two big fourth-down conversions to get down the field.

    A 12-yard catch by Gavin Burd put Glasgow in striking distance at the Thoroughbred 30. Moments later, Sielverio Rescontellio — who led the Scotties with 81 rushing yards on the night — gained four yards on fourth-and-two to keep Glasgow's hopes alive.

    Two plays later, it happened. The Abernathy-Smith struck once again.

    Smith put his foot in the ground, snagging the ball out of the air from his signal-caller. Glasgow's new wide receiver rolled into the end-zone, giving his team a 27-20 lead with 55 seconds remaining.

    "He had some big catches. (The Newport CC defense) struggled to find an answer for it," Garmon said. "All year long, our wide receivers have made plays."

    Newport CC gave a scare at the end, though. The Thoroughbreds drove down to the Glasgow 12-yard-line but ended up turning it over on downs as time expired.

    Next week, Glasgow faces another rematch against district rival Monroe County — who knocked off Lloyd Memorial 35-20.

    "It's a rematch and there's a lot at stake," Garmon said. "Psychologically, (the Falcons) probably have the advantage. They are going to come in here to play with nothing to lose."

    Great game by two teams that gave it everything they had. Wish Kyle Kelly wouldn't have twisted the ankle early in the 4th because it really limited NCC's options. Even with that, they still put together a nice final drive with under a minute left and had a chance to possibly tie or win on the last play.

    I don't know all the particulars, but after the game one of NCC's busses wouldn't start and after trying unsuccessfully for a while to get it started, they wound up using a Glasgow school bus to get those kids all the way back to Newport. Does anyone have any more info on this? Wanted to throw out a huge thanks to whoever made that happen from Glasgow. That's an 8 hour round trip so someone stepped up big time to get those kids home.

    I believe if Kelly doesn't get hurt NCC comes out with at win.
    I am not taking anything away from Glasgow because they did what they had to, to get the win but without Kelly who was running the ball very well ultimately decided the game. Keep in mind Kelly plays both sides of the ball.

    Anyone who was there to witness that game knows exactly why NCC lost. Did it hurt lose Kelly absolutely but they still had the game in their control. I will not go into it any further but for anyone who can find the film please watch it so you can see first hand what happened.
