The Junior Varsity team did a great job today to spoil the home coming for the Argyle Pipers Junior Varsity team.
The Junior Highlanders powered to a 20 - 8 lead in the 2nd quarter and then shut down Argyle for for the win.
Our defense had a big day. Lots of guys stepped up, whether it was creating havoc along the line, linebackers flowing and getting tons of tackles, or db's shutting down the deep pass game. After a TD scored against us in the 2nd quarter, it was lights out on Defence
Offensively we were able to grind out a decent enough run game to allow for the big plays deep downfield, our TD's came on 50 and 40 yard plays. Late in the game we were able to work our way out from our own 1 yard line to keep possession of the ball and run out the clock.
Big shout out to Golo for his 1st interception as a Highlander. This came late in the 4th at the 1 yard line as Argyle was trying to stay alive down 12 points.
Jay Armitage with a 3 TD day was very impressive. 2 receiving TD's on deep passes from Nolan Zen and a fumble recovery scoop and score after a sky high punt from Joaquin Cacho Sousa and great coverage downfield by the punt team.
OLine held strong and provided the protection necessary to have success on offense today. Kian with a strong outing today starting at LT.
Lots to build on, I hope we all enjoy the feeling of getting our first win as a team.
