Jaguars rough up No. 7 Timberwolves

Lexus Lee shines in win

MOORE — Westmoore wanted to send a message. A week after losing a heartbreaker to cross-town rival Southmoore, it needed to let teams know they are better than that.

Facing No. 7 Norman North, the Jaguars felt the message went through loud and clear Thursday at Moore Stadium. They defeated the Timberwolves 29-16 behind a punishing defense and the breakout performance of receiver Lexus Lee.

"We are not as bad as we played against Southmoore," Lee said. "We just had a bad game. We made up for it this game. Hopefully that shows we are not a pushover team."

Lee ignited the Jaguar's offense with 157 yards receiving to go along with two touchdowns. That included snagging a score with three defenders surrounding him late in the fourth to put the game away for the Westmoore.

"Are you kidding me," Westmoore quarterback Jhames West said. "He had a great game. He bailed me out on that last touchdown. He's a tremendous athlete. It kind of makes me mad that he is just now getting credit for the stuff that he's been doing all year. It should put his confidence way up."

Westmoore (2-1) racked up 403 total yards, with 198 of them coming on the ground. West was 9 of 17 for 205 yards passing and four total touchdowns.

Conversely, the Timberwolves (2-1) were turned into a one dimensional team. They rushed for a grand total of 21 yards.

"The defense played so hard," safety Addison Staggs said. "We were swarming to the ball. I don't know how many three and outs we had. We did pretty good tonight. I'm proud of our defense."

Norman North got on the board first when the Jaguars muffed a punt and Devon Navarro was tackled in the endzone. Westmoore compounded the situation when it attempted an onside kick and the T-Wolves recovered at the 37 yard line. The next play Peyton Gavras hit Channing Meyer for a touchdown. North led 9-0.
