The ground game was superb as the GFW Thunderbird football team ran over the Randolph Rockets 36-20.
On the third play of the game, Owen Swenson broke through and sprinted down the far sideline 59 yards to put GFW up early 6-0.
Randolph would respond with a 10-play, 65-yard drive that resulted in a 16-yard touchdown run by Tristan Zingler. The T-Birds blocked the extra point and the teams were tied 6-6.
