Jags fall short against BA



“We fought long, we fought hard,” Green said. “It wasn’t enough. We are a better team than what we played tonight. A lot of little mistakes we need to fix going into the playoffs.”

On their next possession, Lee connected with Deshawn Lookout for a 42-yard bomb down to the Tigers 2-yard line. However, Broken Arrow held them out of the end zone on three consecutive run plays up the middle. Austin Dodd hit a 22-yard field goal to give Jags a 10-0 advantage.

The Tigers (8-2, 5-2) responded with an eight-play, 60-yard drive that concluded with a Austin Reed TD run that cut the lead to 10-7 at halftime.

Cody Harris picked off Lee to start the third quarter. It led to a game-tying field goal. The Tigers added another field goal midway through the period to take 13-10 advantage.

The Jaguars offense was nonexistent for much of the third quarter. The Tigers shut down their run game and didn’t give Lee any time to throw the ball downfield to his wideouts. It was the second time this season the Jags’ offensive line was unable to hold up under pressure

“They just have to keep working and trying to get better every day with their technique,” Langford said. “We still have a bunch of new kids up there, first-year starters that are still trying to learn and improve.”

Lee was intercepted again in the fourth quarter, and it was returned to the Jags’ 14-yard line. It led to a Broken Arrow touchdown that put the game away. Westmoore’s offense was unable to put anything together; they racked up only 275 total yards.

The Jaguars have one week to figure out what they need to do to get back to their winning ways or their season could end sooner than they wanted.
