In their previous meeting, McGregor routed Jarrell 62 - 13. This time around? Just more of the same. McGregor took its contest against Jarrell last week by a conclusive 42 - 10 score. McGregor struggled to find the scoreboard the game before, so the high-scoring effort was a welcome change of pace.
Jarrell had a mediocre defensive performance in the first half, giving up 35 points. That left it at a 35 - 7 disadvantage. With three second-half points, the offense didn't much help its chances for success either.
McGregor can chalk up much of its success to the efforts of senior Johnathan Phenix, who ran for 149 yards and also punched in four touchdowns. Phenix's longest score was a 46-yard scramble in the second quarter.
The defeat makes it one more game for Jarrell (0-8) without a win. The victory lifted McGregor to 4-3.
The teams are out to raise these records in their next games. Jarrell will look to defend its home turf against Franklin this Friday at 7:30 PM. After another low point total this last game, Jarrell has fallen into a real scoring funk its past three games; hopefully the team can find some way to reach the endzone more consistently.
