In a continuation of the game from Thursday 8/22/19, the Jackets came out victorious! The first quarter was played in heavy rains and high winds making it hard to see onto the field. #6 Cole Gregory scored the Jackets only touchdown on Thursday from 53 yards out. To start the second quarter a string of lightning strikes forced the game to be pushed back to Saturday 8/24/19. The Jackets had to start out the 2nd quarter with the ball in a 4th and 8 situation where #6 again took the ball to the house, this time from 37 yards out. After a great defensive stop the jackets took over and drove down the field taking the rest of the quarter with them and punching in another #6 TD this time from 7 yards out. The Jackets fought hard and took a 18-14 lead into the half. The Jackets started slow after halftime getting the ball and turning it over on 4th down. The Saints marched down field for their own score and to take the lead 20-18 with only 30 seconds left in the 3rd quarter. #6 Cole Gregory took a 4th rushing TD to the house on the final play of the quarter from 55 yards out, this time the Jackets were able to punch in the 2 point try with #20 Parker Clemmons diving over a defender on his way in. The 4th quarter starts with the Saints driving the ball, but the jackets come up with a big stop with 4 minuets left in the game. The Jackets offense slowly moves the ball for a few first downs running the clock down to 1:35 seconds before a fumble gives the Saints life. A few runs and a huge pass set the saints up with 37 seconds left, 1st and Goal at the 6 yard line. the Saints out of time outs, get a break with the clock not starting on their first play, a QB run up the middle. The clock finally starts after the ball carrier was down, but the Saints re already set up for another play, another QB run up the middle that the jackets stop at the 3 yard line. The Saints line up with one more attempt from the 2 yard line with the clock running and go with another QB run, #50 Rob Atwood bursts through the line and tackles him for a loss as the clock hits 0:00 and the Jackets leave with a victory!
