Gilman Vs Good Counsel Recap

The top two high school football programs in the state of Maryland squared off against each other last Friday night. The Good Counsel Falcons (Olney), featuring UVa-bound QB Micah Kiser -led Gilman (Baltimore) with both teams looking to rebound after losing in the ESPN High School Kick-off the previous week. The hard-fought contest needed an overtime period to be decided, and the Falcons came out on top with a 20-19 win.

First Half Summary

Gilman could hardly have asked for a better start to this game. Greyhounds senior linebacker Micah Kiser recovered a Dorian O’Daniel fumble on the game’s first play. Three plays later, Trevor Wey connected from 29 yards out to give his team an early 3-0 lead.

Good Counsel appeared to have something started on its next drive, when senior wide receiver/cornerback Kirk Garner took a short pass and sprinted about 30 yards down the field. But Garner fumbled, and once again a Gilman defender recovered. Bob Milloy’s defense once again stiffened, and this time the Greyhounds were unable to convert the turnover into points.
