Last week, it took the Jaguars until the second quarter to get rolling. On this night, the Jaguars did not waste any time. Set up by a Bishop Ford 56-yard dash to the two-yard line, the Jaguars were able to get on the board first with a Montavis Rogers one-yard plunge into the end-zone. Colton Rouse’s extra point gave the Jaguars a 7-0 lead.
Forestview would keep piling it on early and often. The Jaguars would use their areal assult to extend their lead. Logan Bradley connected with C.J. Bumgardner for a 26-yard touchdown reception. Ford got in on the scoring with an 18-yard dash into the end-zone and just like that, it was 20-0.
The Mountaineers were able to get a scoring drive going midway through the second quarter. Quartback Brandon Bell capped off the scoring drive with a 43-yard touchdown pass to Jake Merchant. Cameron Hoard’s kick cut Forestview’s lead to 20-7.
The Jaguars would claw back, though. Bradley, under immense pressure late in the second half, turned what looked to be a sack for loss into another touchdown pass. This time to Moe Neal from 32 yards out. The score would remain 27-7 at half.
Things just kept getting better for Forestview and worse for Kings Mountain. Montavis Rogers scored on another touchdown run, this time from four yards out, to give Forestview a 34-7 lead. Moe Neal, whom accounted for a touchdown reception earlier in the game, scored on a one-yard run to give the Jaguars a 41-7 advantage.
Kings Mountain did score one more time when Bell connected with Tico Crocker for an eight-yard touchdown pass. That would be all the highlights for the Mountaineers on this night. Both teams threatened to score in the fourth quarter, but would come up empty.
“I thought we played really, really well. We had a great game but we had a few lapses.” Forestview head coach Chris Medlin said “(East Lincoln) will be a big challenge and we better be ready.”
The Jaguars will host the Mustangs this Friday. They are 34-7 winners over North Lincoln and are currently riding a 19-game win streak.
“Forestview is good. They are the best we will play this year.” Kings Mountain head coach Greg Lloyd said “We played good, but not as good as we could have though.”
Kings Mountain starts conference play next week as they host East Rutherford.
