JV Huskies romp to 48-13 win over J.C.

After a tied first quarter, the Sweet Home junior varsity took no prisoners, routing Junction City 48-13 Thursday.

“I think we came out a little flat in the first half,” said Coach David Younger. “The kids did a great job adjusting their intensity level after half-time.”

Junction City put the first points on the board on a 62-yard pass play. The PAT kick was good.

Sweet Home’s Donny Cliver scored first for the Huskies, on a four year run, and then kicked the PAT.

The Tigers responded in the second period with a 47 yard pass touchdown and Sweet Home blocked the PAT kick.

Howe picked up a 39 yard pass from Cliver for the next Husky score and Cliver kicked the PAT.

Severns rounded out the first half Husky scoring, tallying six on a four yard run. The kick was blocked.

Graves kicked off the third quarter scoring on an impressive 74 yard kickoff return. The PAT kick was blocked.

Miner added a one yard TD and PAT run, then Severns picked up touchdowns on six and three yards. Cliver kicked both PATs.

“Defensively, the guys did a great job,” Coach Younger said. “Both of Junction City’s touchdowns were a result of blown coverage. We were pretty much two plays away from throwing another shutout.”

Coach Younger said the offensive line did a fine job .

Matt Slauson and Rob Martin dominated the line of scrimmage, he said.

“Sean Swett had a fantastic day at center,” Coach Younger said. “We have so many weapons on offense it really makes it difficult to single out one guy.”

As a team the JV Huskies have scored 166 points and limited their opponents to just 21.
