Shane Medina connected for two field goals of 33 and 34 yards Friday to account for all of Sabinalís scoring in a 13-6 loss to Junction.

 

Late Junction TD kills Jacketsí hopes

A Junction touchdown with just 76 seconds left to play Friday night, Oct. 24, lifted the Eagles to a 13-6 win over Sabinal in a District 14-AA-I contest at Yellowjacket Stadium.

Sabinal is now 5-3 on the year and 2-2 in district play. The loss turns the two remaining games into some high stakes contests, even more than might already have been.

The Jackets will travel west on Friday, Oct. 31, to face their oldest rival, the Brackett Tigers, in a 7:30 p.m. Halloween contest. The following Friday, Nov. 7, Sabinal concludes its regular season with a home game against currently unbeaten Johnson City.

The Jackets were limited by the Eaglesí defense to just a pair of Shane Medina field goals, a 33-yarder at the end of the first quarter and a 34-yarder to tie the game midway through the third.

Just seconds before halftime, as the Jackets were trying to get something going offensively, Junctionís Asa Plumley intercepted a JR Vera pass and returned it 19 yards for a score, giving the Eagles a 6-3 lead.

In the fourth period, Junction got one last push going, driving to the 2-yard line, where Jose Salazar scored the go-ahead touchdown with just 1:16 remaining. Plumley added the PAT for a 13-6 lead.

The Eagles won the critical turnover battle, with five takeaways, to just three for Sabinal.
