Washington holds off late Snow Hill comeback for their first win of the season
PRINCESS ANNE, Md.- After starting the season 0-5, the Washington Jaguars earned their first win of the season with the 7-0 win over Snow Hill. The win improves the Jags to 1-5 on the year and the loss drops Snow Hill to 1-5.
After receiving the opening kickoff, Snow Hill would drive the ball down inside the five yard line. On the tenth play of the drive, Skyler Arsenault would get the handoff up the gut but while fighting for extra yards he’s stripped and Robbie Maddox took ti 94 yards to the Eagle six yard line. A block in the back would back the ball up to the 45 yard line. The Jags drove the ball down in side the ten yard line but six combined penalties, including a hold that wiped a Gavin Fontaine touchdown off the board. The drive would end in a Washington fumble recovered by the Eagles. The teams would trade a few more fumbles throughout the first half until Washington got the ball with thirty seconds left in the half. A screen to Jahmir Woolford would go 55 yards to the house as time expired to give the Jaguars the 7-0 lead at the half.
In the second half, the Jaguars defense did what they needed to do to keep the Eagles out of the endzone. Constant pressure on the QB and a stout run defense helped keep the lead while the offense was able to take time off the clock as Washington holds on in the second half 7-0.
The Jaguars return to action when they travel to Worton to take on Kent County next Friday. Snow Hill will look to end their losing streak when they host Cambridge next Friday.
