To say the James Logan Junior Varsity squad had a good game yesterday would be an understatement. They defeated the Mission San Jose Warriors 61-0. It was over quickly.
“I’m proud of the guys, we put a complete game together and that was our goal from the beginning of the week. I was overall very proud. “Head Coach Jon Nord said, “I was definitely expecting for us to win, I knew that if we put a good game plan and executed we could possibly score 40-50 points."
The lop-sided score gave coaches a chance to give some game time to some player who don't usually play. "It felt really good because the second and third string kids got in,” Nord said.
The JV squad started their game with a good offense; they were able to score 47-0 within the first half and 61-0 by the end of the second half.
In the first quarter the Colts were able to score 40 unanswered points. The Warriors also played a good game; they kept their motivation going and didn’t give up.
Mission tried to fight back, but an interception by Logan player Marquis Jordan snuffed out one of their futile attempts.
The Colts also had a couple of mistakes during the first half, but they remained in the lead with 47-0 by the end of the first half.
During the second half, wide receiver Marquis Jordan was able to score two touchdowns for the Colts, while David Davis scored two more extra points. The second half ended, and the Colts won by 61-0.
After their win, the Colt’s main worry would have to be next week’s game. Next week is going to be a very important game for the Colts, it’s against MVAL rival Washington High. They plan on working twice as hard during practice to make sure that they win next week.
“We definitely have to step up the intensity for next week. It’s one of the biggest rivalries if not the biggest rivalry in the MVAL. There are not a lot of good feelings between Washington and Logan. “Coach Jon Nord said, “We need to put a good game plan together and step up the intensity. The biggest challenge for next week is to come out and out hit Washington in every single play, that’s our goal. “
