Solid Second Half Puts Jags Over Trojans 27-6

After a lackluster first quarter against Gaithersburg on Friday night, filled with punts, fumbles, and penalties, the Northwest faithful may have had some doubts about their offense in the post-Mark Pierce era. While the Jaguars defense looked formidable forcing the Trojans to try a field goal early on in the Friday night’s season opener in Germantown.

The field goal would not end in points a bad snap would end the Trojans hopes of getting on the score board first.

In the second quarter, new Northwest quarterback junior Chris Craddock began to erase some of those doubts with a 40-yard pass to fellow junior Juwon Farri, which put the Jags deep into Trojan territory. Craddock would call his own number from the Gaithersburg one-yard line to give the Jags a 7-0 lead in the second quarter.

The Northwest defense would come up big again after an interception put the Trojan offense deep in Jags territory. The stop allowed the Jags to take a 7-0 lead into halftime.

Gaithersburg began the second half by getting on the board. Trojan senior quarterback Tyler Woodward would complete a pass and earn a roughing the passer call combining in a 40 yard gain for Gaithersburg. The Trojans would score on nine-yard run by junior running back Sidrik Ofori. A two-point conversion would fail, but the Jags lead was cut to 7-6 early in the second half.

The Jags would be forced to punt, but on the next possession, the Jags would recover a Gaithersburg fumble to set up the game-winning score. C
