Jaguars rough up Roughers

(Continued)

MOORE —

“Once we get the run game going, it’s real hard to beat us,” Hardrick said. “When the run game and passing game are going, it’s impossible to stop. I don’t think anybody can stop us. Because you can’t shut down the run and not pay attention to the pass.”

The Roughers made the decision to not let the Jags’ Dahu Green have a field day against their secondary. For much of the first half, they double teamed the 6-3, 185 pound junior wideout.

But midway through the second period, Muskogee left its cornerback on an island with Green and he took advantage. He caught a 31-yard pass to put Westmoore deep into Roughers’ territory. Two plays later, once again seeing man-to-man coverage, Green caught a touchdown pass to put the Jags 20-0.

“I get excited every time I see someone close up to me single covered, I’m sure every receiver gets it,” Green said. “But oh yeah, it’s my time.”

Muskogee didn’t help themselves by turning the ball over five times while also being flagged 12 times in the half. MHS accounted for 20 penalties for 178 yards for the entire game.

The first drive of the third quarter signified the entire game for Muskogee. After holding the Jaguars and forcing them to punt, a Rougher was called for roughing the kicker. A second personal foul was called on same play, which gave the Jags the ball near midfield.

Later in the drive, Green once again made his presence felt. He caught a 23-yard touchdown pass in which he leapt over the defender and snatched the ball out of the air with two hands.

Green finished the night with five catches for 93 yards, two touchdowns and one impressed opposing coach.

“I think I’d throw it up to that receiver about every play,” Muskogee coach Josh Blankenship said. “We had guys in position. There was absolutely nothing we could do. Nothing we could do. It was unbelievable.”

Westmoore moved to 5-0 on the season and kept pace with No. 1 Jenks in the race for the District 6A-2 crown. While the Jags will face the Trojans Oct. 18, they do not plan to over look Putnam City, who they play at 7 p.m. Friday at Putnam City Stadium.

“Last year we lost to (Putnam City),” junior Dahu Green said. “We got something coming for them. Wee will be ready to play.”
