With a football feel outside, the Port St. Joe Dolphins and Jaguars traveled to Blountstown to defend their titles as Big Bend Football League Champions.  Both teams came home victorious.  The Dolphins won their second title in a row with a 28-20 win.  The Jaguars won their fourth consecutive championship 28-22.

In the first game, the Jaguars got off to a fast start.  After running the opening kickoff back to their 44 it took three touches to score a touchdown and the 2-point conversion.  Jasmine Thomas carried all three times. First he covered 34 yards and then finished off the drive with a 28-yard dash to the end zone, followed by the 2-point conversion.

Blountstown came right back by scooping up a Jaguar fumble at the Port St. Joe 35 and returning the fumble to the 15.  Four plays later Blountstown scored, added the 2-point conversion for an 8-8 game.

The Jaguars faced third-and-long at the midfield on the ensuing possession. Thomas threw a long pass to Bryce Register at the Tiger 18.  With 13 seconds left in the half, Thomas punched it in from the 1. The conversion failed.
