Under a blanket of heavy mist at Whitt Memorial Field, the Jackets got it done. The Yellow Jacket defense answered the call by shutting down the Wildcat offense that had been on a tear in region play. Thanks to the D, the offense made quick work in the 1st quarter with a Zacch Pickens score from 3 yards out. The Wildcats recovered a bad punt exchange for their only score of the night. Isaiah Norris zoomed in for the 2nd quarter TD giving the Jackets a 13-7 halftime lead.
The Yellow Jacket offense found it’s groove in the 3rd with 2 TD’s, one from Pickens and Alex Meredith slashing his way for 44 yards. Meredith again scampered for a long run, this time 36 yards. Jay Billingsley connected on 3 PAT’s for the night and Jackson Pusey hit for a 24 yard run to score. Game over 41-7!
