Gadsden City wrapped up its regular season schedule in fine fashion on Oct. 27, as the Titans posted their second straight shutout after a 46-0 blanking of Calera at GCHS. It was the third time in four games the Titans held the opposition scoreless.
The Titans (7-3, 5-0) limited the Eagles to 54 yards while rolling up 270.
Gadsden City raced out to a 25-0 lead after one quarter thanks to an 80-yards kickoff return for a touchdown by Dre Kirkpatrick, Jr., a safety, a pair of touchdown runs from T. J. Worthy (one for 55 yards another for six) and Gabriel Brito’s 21-yard field goal.
Luke Waldrop’s 1-yard touchdown run in the second quarter sent GCHS into halftime ahead 32-0.
The Titans scored twice more during the third period, first on Waldrop’s 20-yard TD pass to Kerrell Yow and then on Zyan Gibson’s 58-yard punt return for a touchdown.
Waldrop was 10 for 13 in passing for 153 yards. Matthew Sparks had four receptions for 83 yards, while Justin Peoples caught three passes for 20 yards.
Worthy rushed for 72 yards on nine carries.
Cameron Rolley and Jerrell Brasher each had a sack, while Kevin Brooks had an interception.
Gadsden City has an open date this week before hosting Gardendale in the first round of the Class 6A state playoffs.
