Jags win city title with 31-13 win over Southmoore



“I knew they had seen a little bit of film and seen me catch a few jump balls last week,” Green said. “We just put the ball downfield and I’m a lot taller than their corner. I thought they were going to put the safety over the top. But we have so many other weapons on offense that putting two men on one person is going to leave somebody open.”

Two plays later, Kieron Hardrick scored from four yards out to give the Jaguars a 7-0 advantage.

Southmoore hurt themselves on special teams with a muffed punt return recovered by the Jags on the Cats’ 16-yard line.

Green made them pay again with an 11-yard touchdown catch to put the Jags up 14-0. Westmoore went up by 21 points when Green caught a 17-yard TD catch that came on fourth down.

Southmoore was unable to get anything going on offense until the end of third when Jaelon Walker put the SaberCats on the board with a 5-yard touchdown run.

However, the Jags responded when Lee connected with Deshawn Lookout for a 75-yard touchdown pass. Lookout caught a slant pass across the middle, streaked down the middle of the field untouched and gave the Jags a 21-point advantage.

The SaberCats added a touchdown when Dunya Rice caught a 27-yard pass, but it wasn’t enough, as Westmoore held on for the win and claimed its second city championship in three seasons.

“It’s big,” Lee said. “Gives us all the momentum in the world. It’s a great win for the school because we needed it. We needed to beat these guys. It’s the best thing ever. This is our house. We beat all the Moore teams. This is our field.”
