Sterling Jets cruise past Tigers

STERLING - The Sterling Jets hosted the Lewiston Tigers for their Homecoming on Friday night, October 12th in cool, damp and foggy conditions.

The Jets didn’t waste any time as they pounced on the Tigers early and often in the first half. Sterling faced a 4th and 11 on their first possession when quarterback Logan Jasa rolled to his left and found Colin VanGroningen wide open for a huge gain and a 1st and goal at the Lewiston 10 yard line.

Three plays later, Tristan Dirks found the end zone on a 10 yard run with 8:37 left. The Jets had their problems all night with the PATs however, as they had their first PAT kick blocked and it remained 6-0.

On Lewiston’s first drive of the night, Jasa went to work on defense by picking off an errant pass to get the ball back for Sterling at their own 10 yd. line.

JCC edged out by Freeman, 12-8

The Thunderbirds once again battled, but came up short on Friday night against the Freeman Falcons. JCC traveled to Adams to take on the 4-2 Falcons, who were ranked #10 in class C-2 entering the contest. “This was one of the most nail-biting finishes that I have been a part of as a head coach, as it came down to the last drive of the ballgame to determine the victor,” Coach Gabe Meints commented. “In the last few years, we have not found ourselves in a position like this very often, that is, making one last drive to try and come from behind to win a ballgame. Our kids showed a lot of fight to try and win this game, as they knew what was at stake.” What was at stake, Coach Meints added, was the chance to beat yet another ranked team on their schedule, as they have been defeated by three previous ranked teams in Wilber, Shelby-RC, and North Bend Central.
