At the start, things were not looking so good for the Dalers, as the Generals struck first with a touchdown in the first quarter of the game. And by the second quarter things were really looking bleak, once MacArthur’s Vin Martino scored a 5-yard touchdown, giving the team a 14-0 lead.
The Giants and Jets met for the 2nd time this season, with the Giants again getting the victory over the Jets. Jalen Gordon scored late into the 1st half for the Giants, which turned out to be the only points in the half. The Giants shut the Jets down for both halves, keeping the offense off the board. The Jets strong point this weekend was the defense, with Kyle June and Jake Kuller picking up the weekly William June Foundation awards. In what is turning into a rough offensive season for the Jets, these awards continue to remind the boys of the perseverance and determination of the award’s namesake and his “never say quit” attitude.
