Warriors win 27-21
By Parish Howard
The Jefferson County Warriors took another region win Friday, this time over Metter’s Tigers, 27-21.
“We finally got to moving on offense some,” Coach J.B. Arnold said. “It was a big region win for us and you have to realize, Metter had a week off before us, so they had two weeks to put together a game plan against us. It was a tough ball game.”
Warrior senior running back Kobe Jackson scored on a 20-yard run on the Warriors’ second possession to put them up 7-0 with freshman Evans Hodges’ PAT.
Jackson scored again in the second quarter, this time on a 25-yard run.
Metter’s Tigers attempted a rally in just before the half, connecting on a short pass to close the Warrior lead to 13-7 at the half.
However on their first play after the kickoff, junior runningback Tyler Williams found a hole an ran 35 yards for a touchdown. Quarterback Will Jordan connected with Marquis Carter for a two-point conversion to put the Warriors up 21-7.
On the second play of their next possession, Jackson ran 87 yards for his third touchdown of the night
The Tigers found paydirt once in the third and again, midway through the fourth quarters, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Warrior lead.
Kobe Jackson led the Warriors with 163 yards on 15 rushes and three touchdowns. Jackson also caught one pass for 15 yards.
“It was really a break out game for Kobe,” Arnold said. “He’s not real big but he works hard and he plays his tail off. He’s about as tough a kid as I know and Friday he played the game I know he is capable of having.”
Senior quarterback Will Jordan completed two passes for 16 yards and carried the ball 10 times for 17 yards.
Tyler Williams had six carries for 55 yards before he left the game with an injury.
Junior QB Tyrone Bell carried the ball five times for 20 yards.
In all, the Warriors had 271 total yards, 255 of those rushing, to the Tiger’s 282.
“I give Metter credit, they did some things we hadn’t seen on film,” Arnold said. “As the game wore on, they found a play or two that really gave us fits. We got tired, but we didn’t give up.”
This Friday the Warriors will have a week off to heal up and prepare for their last three region games on the road against Harlem, at home versus East Laurens and then on the road again to Swainsboro.
“This week off couldn’t come at a better time,” Arnold said. “We are going to focus on fixing what we see wrong and fine tune things for the final push getting through these last three games and hopefully getting as high a seed as possible going into the playoffs.”
