News 25 Game of the Week: Gulfport vs. Oak Grove

- if this was march madness, it - would be the elite 8... but - instead... it's the news 25 - friday night showcase.- alongside andrew scherer... i'm- jeff haeger... in - house, for this very special re- match edition.- yeah, jeff... four local- teams... and four trips to sout- state on- the line... starting of - course... with the news 25 game- of the week.- no doubt, my good sir... and as- has been the case a lot - recently... that honor goes to- gulfport... fresh off its first- playoff win, since 2010...- against visiting oak grove.

- they say it's hard to beat the- same team twice, right?

- well... the admirals are bankin- on it, here in round- two... where the stakes are muc- higher than they were... for- that- early september loss.

- first quarter... opening drive- for the admirals... cade- crosby... to de-shun shields...- and he's got it... steps out of- bounds immediately... but the - man was catching 'em- one-handed, in pre-game... so - you know he's feeling it.

- but oak grove playing that- oak tree defense... - standing tall on fourth down, - for the admirals... tyran - gable is close... but doesn't - quite get there... and that's a- big time- turnover on downs.- later in the quarter... gulfpor- getting fooled, - on the play action... as damon- stewart gets it to eric - robinson... and the senior had- his man shook like the- shooklyn bridge... he could...- go... all... the... way... or - does he... ball fumbled at the- goal line... might be a - touchback...- but no... official says - touchdown... and as you might - expect... head coach john archi- absolutely irate, - at the call... yelling the ball- went out the back of the end- zone... so we're gonna have to- slow this one down... and take- another look... a lot to digest- here... did he cross the plane- before the ball was out... was- his knee down before the ball - was out... and if it is a - fumble... where did the ball go- out of- bounds... what's a playoff game- without a little controversy...- 7-nothing warriors.

- second quarter now... admirals- giving it to tyler reed... and- this- might be the first time we've - called his name, all year... an- that's our fault... check out - the burst, from the sophomore..- as- he barrels into a pair of o-g - defenders... for the gulfport - first down.

- and how about a gulfport- touchdown... crosby... to blue- admiral... blue shields...- sticks it right on his chest...- in- stride... and just like that...- the home team has this thing al- tied up, at 7-all... man, every- week... these receivers are - doing something flat out nasty.- only problem... oak grove's are- pretty gross, too... stewart...- quacks a duck right into the- hands of tavion smith... a- little- wobbly... but hey, it gets the- job done... smith down right at- the goal line.- and on the very next play...- warriors not wasting any time - punching it in... as robinson - walks in, practically un- - touched... his second score, of- the night... visitors back in - command... leading 14-7.- now the last time these two - teams played... word is crosby- was running for his life... but- this time he's ready for the- pressure... the pocket- presence... to flip it out to - tommie johnson... and that's a- big first down, for the - admirals.

- and really making this last - possession before the half- count... as gable finally shake- loose, for a big gain... and- here's- the important thing... that put- gulfport in field goal range...- for - this eventual boot... from more- than 40 yards out... and- tres ladner absolutely buries - this one, through the - uprights... - student section loving it...- they're always loving it... but- unfortunately... not loving the- result... as gulfport's last- game at milner stadium, in- 20-19... ends in defeat... by - way of a 42-24-
