The JSMS Boys traveled to Smith County Middle and played very sloppy in the first half that led to a 50-17 blowout loss to a good Smith County team.
The first matchup between the two ended in a 13-point Owl victory.

“We are better than 50-17. Smith is a good team. They are well coached, and they brought a different defensive energy tonight that caused us problems.”, explained JSMS coach, Davy Cothron.

Down 28-5 at the half was tough enough, but add the fact that the team had to deal with the injury to Dalton Stafford, who ended up being back boarded and taken to a near-by hospital. “That was a scary moment. We just wanted to be over-cautious right there and let the medical people check him out.”

After play resumed, the Jackets went on a spurt to cut the Owl lead to 28-14 in the 3rd quarter, but back-to-back three point bombs ended any threat of a JSMS comeback story.

Dalton Stafford had 6 points. Gregory 4, McClain 3, and Eden, Cooper Henley, Jake Fergusson, and Calhoun each had 1 point to round out the Jacket scoring.
