PHENIX CITY, Ala. — Glenwood’s Brandon Dailey found Chase Silvani open for their fourth touchdown pass of the game as the Gators took a 47-44 win over Tattnall Square on Friday night in the season opener for both teams.
The touchdown came with only 26 seconds left in the game as the Trojans and the Gators hooked up for one of the wildest scoring fourth quarters ever for Glenwood.
Glenwood led going into the fourth quarter by a 21-7 margin before the fireworks started and both teams saw scoring in just about every imaginable way.
The Gators were outscored by the Trojans 37-26 in the final quarter as the teams combined for more than 500 yards of offense in the second half alone.
For Dailey, it was a bit of redemption as he threw the four touchdowns of 85, 28, 45 and 10 yards to Silvani but also threw three interceptions and was called for intentional grounding in the end zone, giving Tattnall a safety.
In the second half, Dailey was 9-for-9 and threw for 157 yards and added 79 more yards in the first half.
The Trojans were also without the services of John Rader, who did not dress for the game. But Clay Humphries sparked the Trojans’ comeback as he ran 111 yards and scored on an 82-yard kickoff return.
