Another Homecoming, Another Win

Flowers’ new principal, Mr. Brown, has come up with a new tradition for Jaguar football games. After every score, Mr. Brown does a pushup for each point put on the board. He got a lot of exercise today.
Flowers won arguably the most important game of the season so far in convincing fashion, dominating Roosevelt 33-14. Their success came courtesy of big plays on both sides of the ball, as they not only scored on long runs and passes, but they set up those plays with timely interceptions and tackling.
It didn’t take long for Flowers to score in this game. Their first touchdown came by way of a 50 yard touchdown strike on the third play of their first drive. Their receivers were able to easily slip by and separate from the Raiders’ defensive backs all game, which aided significantly in opening up the field for pass plays.
After forcing Roosevelt to punt, Flowers scored once again after a long drive up the field. A trick play was the key moment of this drive as the Jaguars deceived the Raiders’ defense on a double reverse run for a touchdown. That score brought the score to 12-0 in favor of Flowers and many thought that the Jaguars were in for a huge day.
The Raiders managed to make things a little interesting before halftime, scoring on a pass play with 4 seconds left in the 2nd to make the score 12-6.
From there however, it was all Flowers. They scored on another long pass play with 9 minutes left in the third quarter and completed the two-point conversion to make the score 20-6. With good field position after yet another Raider punt, the Jaguars scored on a 60 yard QB draw play to make it 26-6.
The rout would continue as the Jaguars were able to intercept their third pass of the game with about six minutes left in regulation. After the turnover, they scored yet again to bring the tally to 33-6. A fourth pass was picked off with five minutes left but Flowers was unable to convert it into another touchdown. Roosevelt scored with 15 seconds remaining to make the score look a little more respectable, but this was by all means a blowout.
