Week 12: Bishop Gorman blows past Centennial 59-7 for Sunset title

Bishop Gorman football coach Tony Sanchez isn’t psychic. But the way Centennial carried itself and played during a 49-20 loss to the Gaels on Oct. 19 told Sanchez his team hadn’t seen the last of the Bulldogs.

Sanchez was right. Centennial (9-2) travels to Gorman (10-1) at 7 p.m. today with the Sunset Region title on the line. The winner moves into the Division I state semifinals and will play the Northern Region champion Nov. 24.

“When we walked off the field that night, we were pretty convinced we’d see them again,” Sanchez said. “And they look good right now.”

Centennial is coming off a 14-9 win over previously undefeated Arbor View last week, and the Bulldogs don’t have to fear the unknown against the Gaels.

“Playing them before really gave us an idea of who they are, how they play, and we’re coming out ready,” Centennial senior defensive end/tight end Trajan Pili said.

The task Pili and the Bulldogs face is daunting. Gorman won the last three Class 4A state titles, and hasn’t lost to a Nevada school since 2008.
