Jahlil Jefferson, senior running back, scored on touchdowns runs of 65, 8 and 3 yards in a 35-7 Division II-A East Region win versus Chattanooga Christian in Webb’s David Meske Stadium Friday night, Oct. 12.
About the 65-yarder, “It was obviously great blocking,” said Jefferson, whose Spartans improve to 3-5 overall, 3-1 in region.
Elijah Howard, Webb sophomore, scored on a 51-yard run.
Alec Boruff put the Spartans up early, using a 7-yard quarterback bootleg run to make it 7-0.
“The best thing was how well our defensive line played. That allowed the linebackers to be freed up and make a lot of plays,” said Turley Wall, Webb senior linebacker, among a host of green-clad defenders who, while allowing the Chargers (5-3. 3-1) to string together a few first downs here and there, bowed up and stopped CCS short of the end zone — minus one scoring drive.
