Jersey Shore closes Shamokin | Sports
COAL TOWNSHIP – Trolling with two touchdowns late in the second quarter after at least partially dampening the Jersey Shore no-caucus offense, Shamokin appeared to have Bulldogs big-back Hadyn Packer stopped before the first down at Jersey Shore 16 – yard line.
Packer managed to get away from the initial wall, and he covered 9 yards and a first try on his second effort. On the next play, Brady Jordan hit his All-State wide receiver Cayden Hess, who landed a one-handed catch with Shamokin defenseman on him and traveled 75 yards for a touchdown.
It seemed like the turning point of what had been a close game so far. Jersey Shore‘s defense stopped Shamokin and the Bulldog offense provided plenty of points in a 38-0 win
“The first half, minus three games, it was a pretty good defensive effort. They only made three games and other than that we did a good job of containing them, ”said Shamokin coach Henry Hynoski. “We were able to slow them down at the start of the game, but our attack struggled tonight. The main thing we struggled with tonight was getting their blitz and pass protection back. We’ll have to look at that. and clean it up. “
Because as well as Shamokin’s defense sometimes played, the Indians were unable to muster anything offensively. The Indians were held to a first try in the first half until the penultimate play of the third quarter. They finished with four first downs on the night and 70 offensive yards as Jersey Shore sacked Shamokin quarterback Brett Nye six times and made four more tackles for loss. Shamokin kicked 10 times in the match.
“In order to maintain what we were doing defensively, we have to be able to get the first downs and move the ball, and we haven’t done that tonight,” Hynoski said. “We felt great even at half-time. We felt we still had a chance for this game. We actually played a decent fourth quarter by running the ball offensively with their starters still in the game. had some positives to take from that, but we have to be able to maintain consistent offensive controls and we have to find a way to get the first downs and take our defense off the pitch. “
While the Indians couldn’t do much with the ball, they managed to limit Jersey Shore’s high-octane offense early on. They forced two punts and a missed basket in the Bulldogs’ first three practices. Then they were burnt by the large pieces of Jersey Shore.
A 55-yard touchdown pass from Jordan to Kooper Peacock put the Bulldogs on the scoreboard with 1:17 left in the first quarter.
In the second quarter, Peacock gave the Bulldogs a 33-yard punt return to set them up at Shamokin 26, and two plays later, Packer ran it 18 yards to give the Bulldogs a 14-0 lead.
The Bulldogs scored three in a row in the second half to put the game out of reach.
“We expect to make some big plays,” Jersey Shore coach Tom Gravish said. “We’ve been relying on running a lot more over the last couple of weeks, but we always thought we could pitch. But we wanted to make sure we kick off the racing game, but we’ll probably continue to pitch a bit more the rest of the season. season.”
Jordan’s only three passes of the night were touchdowns, as he only completed 3 of 14 passes, but for 150 yards.
