PSJ Gene Raffield teams Super Bowl bound

Published: Friday, November 9, 2012 at 03:35 PM.

In a display of skill, power and depth the Port St. Joe Dolphins and Jaguars insured their place in the Gene Raffield League Super Bowl with big wins over the Wewa Warriors this past Saturday.  Both teams had the opportunity to play their backups for a big part of the games and they performed like the champs they are.  The Dolphins won 50-14, the Jaguars 40-0.

The Jags only score of the first half came on a drive that began on their 20.  It was kept alive when, on third and long, Drew Jones threw a halfback pass to Tyler Cornwell.  A few plays later, Kanon Martin went up the middle, broke outside and went 25 yards for the touchdown.  Martin then ran in the 2-point conversion.

The second half began with a Jaguar touchdown on a 60-yard keeper by quarterback Bryce Register.  Jasmine Thomas scored the conversion.  The Jags got another six points on a 78-yard scamper by Thomas and two more when Martin bulled into the end zone with the conversion.

For the second week in a row the Jaguar defense had an interception for a touchdown.  The Warriors attempted a pass to the flat.  Outside linebacker Gregory Julius read the play, timed it perfectly, made the interception and raced to the end zone.  

The Jags scored one more touchdown on a 24-yard reverse by Cornwell that was set up by a 30-yard pass and run from quarterback Devin Crews to tight end Jonnolan Treglown.  Davien Welch ended the Jaguar scoring by taking in the conversion on a tough run up the middle.

The scoring machine known as the Port St. Joe Dolphins set an all-time record for Gene Raffield Football teams when they put seven touchdowns on the board.  Josh Farmer, De’Marion Gray and Prince Jones had two each.  George Foxworth had one and did an outstanding job of blocking for the other runners.

In the first half the Warriors were able to score two touchdowns, the second as the horn indicated the end of the period.  Despite the lopsided score they never did stop trying their best.
