The Jackets cruised to a 50-14 victory over the Belton Tigers on Friday night. The game was tight early as the Jackets and Tigers exchanged punches to begin the game, but the Jackets began to pour it on and never looked back. Jaxon Smith hauled in three touchdown passes from Senior Jacob Clark and the running game hit a spark too. The Jackets defense who had been suspect to begin the year really came into their own on Friday as they were able to hold the Tigers to 273 yards of total offense and a season low for the Tigers in points.
The Jackets will advance to the Area Round to take on the defending State Champion Allen Eagles. The game will be played at Williams Stadium in Garland this Friday at 6:00 p.m.
