De La Salle safety Antoine Pickett got things started with a 90-yard kickoff return for a touchdown on the opening kickoff, but then Gorman scored a pair of touchdowns to go up.

Gorman's 2012 running back Shaq Powell ran for 112 yards and two touchdowns, but a fumble early in the third allowed the Spartans to tie it up, returning it for a touchdown.
