A loaded Bishop Gorman squad made an early season statement last night as they hosted the Orem Tigers out of Utah routing the Tigers 40-7.
Sophomore running back Cam Barfield led the way for Gorman, rushing for 194 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries.
The Gaels, ranked 18th by USA Today, jumped on the Tigers early when Bowens connected with freshman wide receiver Zakariah Branch for a 45-yard touchdown less than a minute into the game.
Barfield scored a few minutes later on a 2-yard TD run to push the lead to 13-0.
By the end of the 1st quarter, Gorman had already extended their lead to a 27-0 margin.
Orem was without the services of superstar linebacker Noah Sewell who is nursing an injury.
Now, the Gaels turn their attention on a trip to Hawaii to play St. Louis of Honolulu, USA Today’s 12th-ranked team that also has Division I talent at the skill positions.
