Football Coach Brendan Flaherty Scores His Hundredth Win
Football Coach Brendan Flaherty didn't even know it.
But the team's playoff victory on October 19 against long-time-rival Seaholm was Flaherty’s 100th win.
Flaherty only found out when assistant coach Brian Hafner gave him the game ball. After coach Flaherty speaks at the end of each game, he always asks the other coaches if they want to add anything about the game.
Hafner stepped up and said, “I just want to give it up to coach Flare. Tonight is his 100th win, and it’s great to do it against Seaholm.”
The football game started on the rough side with Seaholm winning 9 to 6. During halftime something came over Groves football players. Senior cornerback Josh Salter made two game changing interceptions. Senior running back Demonte Mccurdy ran three touchdowns, and Khalil Dawsey scored a touchdown that pulled Groves 26 points over Seaholm’s 9.
