JH Football Picks Up First Win

by Tyler Williams

September 17, 2018

     Third time was a charm for the junior high Warriors as they were able to pick up their first win of the season on the road against Lakeside, 32-22, on September 13.  The win improves the record to 1-2 on the still young season. 

     The game saw many score changes and had many ups and downs throughout.  The Warriors were able to take a 14-12 lead into the half on the strength of a Bryson Schmidt touchdown from 15 yards out on a toss play (Two-Point try failed) and a Cody MacLean touchdown off a draw play that included a botched snap.  The two-point conversion was good as Levi Cool hit MacLean on an out route.

     In the second half, the Warriors were able to force a safety on a bad snap from the Knights.  MacLean crossed into the end zone twice on runs, with both two-point conversions being successful (Schmidt run on a toss play, MacLean run up the middle). 

     The defense throughout the game was what kept the Warriors in it and eventually led them to victory.  After being mercy ruled the first two games of the season and never forcing a punt, the kids of SC seemed to have an “Aha!” moment.  Lucas Jamison had a monster game from his defensive end spot, sacking the quarterback 3 times, as well as recording numerous tackles for loss.  Misdirection plays were shut down on his side of the field as he set the edge and did not let anyone around. 

     Schmidt was on the other side of Jamison and made some big plays of his own, stuffing reverse tries for 7 yard losses.  MacLean was all over the field from his linebacker position, meeting ball carriers and driving them back.  Cool and Dante Peterson made great solo tackles that would have been touchdowns otherwise, despite being undersized.  The Warrior defense also allowed only one pass completion, having excellent coverage on pass plays. 

     Next up for the Warriors will be their first home game of the season against Pike Valley at Lobaugh Field in Miltonvale.  Game time is set for 6:00.
