The Graham Steers took a 35-14 win over the Wylie Bulldogs in a odd game that offered a look into the Steers ability to fight back from adversity.
The Graham defense was the real star of the game Friday night at Newton Field with five interceptions and a defensive touchdown.
 The Steers offense looked good in the first half, after a few drives were stopped, Graham opened the scoring with a good drive capped by a Ben Davis rushing touchdown.
Wylie responded with a nice drive and a touchdown of their own.
It would prove to be the only touchdown that the Wylie offense could muster against the stingy Graham defense.
Davis scored again on a one-yard run to put Graham up 14-7 going into the half.
Graham was supposed to be in good shape entering the second half with the lead and the ball, but an interception returned for a touchdown tied things up and on the following drive Dillon Gonzales fumbled to give Wylie the ball with a chance to go ahead.
The Graham defense once again saved the day with a Dustin McWhorter interception that sat the Graham offense with tremendous field position.
Gonzales took the ball 20 yards off of a pass from Davis and followed that up with a 39-yard touchdown run that was as good or better than any single run that Gonzales has put together in his career.
Gonzales would score again with 6:49 left in the third quarter to put the score at 28-14 with the Steers on top.
