Article excerpt

TOWN AND COUNTRY * The Red Devils will have to wait another year to exorcise their demons.

CBC rallied from a two-touchdown deficit for a 33-20 win over Chaminade on Friday night at CBC.

The much-anticipated showdown between Metro Catholic Conference heavies was just more of the same old song.

The No. 4 large school in the STLhighschoolsports.com rankings and the No. 1 team in Class 6, CBC (3-1 overall, 1-0 league) hasn't lost a conference game since 2009 and hasn't lost to Chaminade since 2008.

Brown caught five passes for 144 yards.

After a 30-minute delay at halftime, CBC scored on its first drive of the third quarter. Senior running back Kaleb Allen dove in from 1-yard out to make it 20-13 three and a half minutes into the second half.

Gabbert threw his third touchdown pass when he found junior standout receiver Kamryn Babb over the middle for a 43-yard touchdown. Babb made the catch and in two steps hit full speed to leave Chaminade's secondary grasping at his dust with 3:12 to play in the third.

Gabbert finished the night 14-of-22 for 265 yards with three touchdown passes. …
