GMC Bulldogs improve to 8-0

MILLEDGEVILLE — GMC continued it march through the 2013 season taking on its fourth top 10 opponent in No. 6 Nassau Community College and coming away with a commanding 45-22 victory Saturday. 

GMC controlled the first half on both sides of the ball, making long drives in their first two possessions to take a 14-0 lead b the start of the second quarter. GMC expanded the lead to 21-0 with only a few minutes remaining in the half, but Nassau took advantage of pass interference on third and long and a long run to punch in their first score of the game with a little over a minute remaining in the half. GMC responded with a nice two-minute offense drive that ended with a field goal and a 24-7 lead at the half.

GMC came out slightly flat offensively after the GMC defense gave the Dogs a short field. Two back to back penalties forced the Dogs to punt and Nassau blocked the kick to set up a very short field drive for their second score.
