Published 11:25pm Friday, September 14, 2012

“I think we played well,” Jemison head coach Merritt Bowden said. “It was nice to be able to go out there and put four quarters together.”

Bowden said his starters’ performance gave Jemison a large enough lead to give younger players some time on the field.

“The older guys were encouraging the young guys,” Bowden added. “That’s what the young players need.”

For Jemison, Underwood had seven carries for 132 yards and two touchdowns, and King had seven carries for 82 yards and three touchdowns.

Jacob Hatch had six completions for 98 yards and two touchdowns.

Ziegler had two catches for 36 yards and two touchdowns.

Raequane Jones had 11 tackles, six tackles for loss and a forced fumble.

Keyshawn Jemison had seven tackles and two tackles for loss.

Roberto Abarca had six tackles and two tackles for loss.

Jemison will host Bibb County on Sept. 21.

JHS announced its homecoming queens before Friday night’s game.

Vinzant’s court included: freshman Kelsea Smith, daughter of James and Teresa Smith; sophomore Kyra Glasscock, daughter of David and Allegra Glasscock; and junior Morgan Lucas, daughter of Buddy and Pam Lucas.
