October 1, 2009GARLAND - After a 1 hour and 49 minute lightening delay, the game was finally in session. The game looked like it was going to be a two-sided defensive affair as no team scored in the first quarter of play.
However, all changed on Garland's first possession of the second quarter. On 3rd and 8 from the 18 yard line, Jared Barnett connected with senior wide receiver Adrian Phillips on a beautiful 40 yard strike. Phillips hauled in the pass at the Centennial 45 yard line and proceeded to break 2 tackles as he crossed the 40. He never stopped and the 82 yard TD gave Garland the 6-0 lead with 8:29 remaining in the 2nd quarter. The point after try was blocked, but an offside call against the Patriots gave the Owls a second try. The kick from Eduardo Barajas was up and good giving Garland the 7-0 lead.
Four plays into the drive, Barnett connected with Phillips in the flat and raced down the right sideline for the 17 yard touchdown. Phillips ended the day with 3 touchdowns and Garland took a 35-0 lead with 7:36 to go in the 3rd quarter.
