Jaguars fall behind in district race

MOORE — Westmoore had high hopes of going to Jenks last week and erasing the bad taste of losing to Putnam City the week before. Unfortunately, they were only able to double down on the loss with a 38-14 loss to the Trojans.

“They are really talented team and you have to play an almost perfect game to beat a team that is the caliber of Jenks,” Westmoore coach Billy Langford said. “ We could not come up with a couple of key stops defensively and offensively we had two opportunities to score in the red zone and come away with no points. We also gave up to big kickoff returns.”

The Jaguars (4-3, 2-2 District 6A-2) held a 14-7 lead midway through the second quarter behind two Austin Richards 1-yard TD runs. He, quarterback Jhames West and the mammoth offensive line had taken control of the game by pounding the rock for almost 200 rushing yards in n the first half.

However, Jenks (5-2, 4-0) scored right before halftime to tie the game and then again to start the third quarter and the Jags were unable to respond.

“We gave up a big kickoff return to set up their second score,” Langford said. “Then we did not score in response. We moved the ball into the red zone and did not score. It was big to let them score to open the half then not score in response.”

Westmoore racked up 300 total yards, with 230 coming on the ground. West 9-of-15 passing with one interception. The defense gave 397 yards..

“We just needed to get a turnover or two and score when we had our opportunities,” Langford said. “ I thought we played really physical on offense, the offensive line really controlled the first three quarters. I thought defensively we did not tackle well. Overall our effort and preparation was great all week and we executed really well on offense.”
