TNL FINAL: Burbank rallies past Jefferson 30-16
SAN ANTONIO - Dylan Gusme scored 2 TDs and the Burbank Bulldogs stayed unbeaten in district play with a 30-16 win over Jefferson at Alamo Stadium on Hallmark University Thursday Night Lights presented by Jack in the Box.
Burbank improved to 3-2 overall and 3-0 in District 28-5A.
Gusme didn't touch the ball a lot on Thursday, but when he did he made something happen. The Bulldogs wideout took a reverse 31 yards for a touchdown and hauled in a 75-yard touchdown pass from Julian Basaldua for his two scores that helped Burbank pull away.
Down 10-0 after the first quarter, QB Jason Gray threw a pair of TD passes to ERic Araiza and Jose Calvillo to give Jefferson a 16-10 lead at halftime.
But Basaldua connected with Marcus Bolden on a 10-yard score to give Burbank the lead for good at 17-16 early in the 3rd quarter.
