Booker T. Washington had two quarterbacks injured, but the Tornadoes (8-0, District 8-4A) rolled past Gulliver (6-2, 1-1) on Thursday at Curtis Park.
On the first drive, starting quarterback Treon Harris went down with a knee injury and did not return. Coach Tim Harris said that it was intentional to get the second and third string players experience in district play.

Running back Krondis Larry scored twice, including a 94-yarder in the fourth quarter.
