Jackets grab early 21-0 lead, beat Harper for first league win

Sabinal scored on its first three possessions of the night, then played solid defense the rest of the way, to record a 28-17 win over Harper in District 14-AA-I action last Friday, Oct. 10, at Yellowjacket Stadium.

The win, which breaks a two-game skid, raises the Jackets’ season record to 4-2, and evens their district mark at 1-1.

This Friday, Oct. 17, Sabinal travels to Center Point to face the Pirates in another district game, starting at 7:30 p.m.

Sabinal scored three touchdowns in the opening period. Scoring passes of 25 and 62 yards, from JR Vera to Justice Gonzales, were bookended around a scoring drive capped by a one-yard Preston Nevarez TD run. Shane Medina added the extra point after each of the Jackets’ scores.

Harper got on the board early in the second quarter when Bryle Jalowy boomed a 42-yard field goal, to bring the score to 21-3. The margin stayed there until the fourth quarter.

Vera connected for his third scoring pass of the night, this time a 21-yard strike to Andrew Guevara with 8:16 left in the game. Medina’s PAT gave Sabinal its biggest lead of 28-3.

Harper wasn’t finished, scoring on its final two possessions of the night. Quarterback Gus Sagraves scored on a 14-yard keeper midway through the fourth period, then threw a 67-yard TD strike to Jacob Pierz with just 80 seconds remaining in the game.

Sabinal went over the 200- yard mark in both rushing and passing on Friday, with 280 yards on the ground and 201 through the air.
