Homecoming was sweet for the Jones Longhorns, as the Home team celebrated a 62-19 win over the Kellyville Ponies. Carson May threw for 3 TDs and Clayton Creasey rushed for 2 TD as the Longhorns moved to 3-1 in the crowded 2A-2 District.
“Kids got on track, went out and expected, and carry this stuff through each week” Coach Martin said after the game. The Longhorns were looking to get back on track early, and they showed up in a big way.
The Longhorns received the opening kickoff and went on an 8 play, 60 yard drive capped off by a Carson May rushing TD from four yards out. After a three and out the Kellyville punt was blocked and recovered by Will Irvine. Three plays later Clayton Creasey would find the end zone on a 5-yard score. The Longhorns didn’t completely steal the momentum as Kellyville star Jaustin Miles returned the ensuing kickoff 94-yards for a TD. The Horns answered with a six play, 60 yard drive. This time May found Emmett Murphy for the 34-yard score. Murphy juggled the ball and used excellent concentration to control the ball in the end zone. The Ponies would punt again, setting up another short field and another Creasey TD run, this time from the two yard line. Kellyville would fumble on the first play of the next drive setting up a Chase Pitts 9-yard TD run. By the end of the first quarter, Jones led 35-7.
The Horns would slow the pace significantly in the 2nd quarter. May would connect with Luke Huckaby on a 3-yard score early in the 2nd. Cadyn Karl would cap off the scoring for the Longhorns in the 2nd with a 12-yard rush. This would send the Longhorns to the locker room with a 49-7 lead.
The First Team offense would complete one full series in the second half, and May and Murphy would connect for a second time in the evening on a 29-yard toss. Through essentially one half of football, Carson May was 20-22, 302 yards and 3 TDs. Emmett Murphy had 7 receptions and 133 yards and two scores. Cadyn Karl had 95 all-purpose yards on only 8 touches, scoring one TD. The Horns leading rusher was Creasey, who was by no means done for the evening. Creasey then ran the second-team offense through most of the second half, going 5-6 for 49 yards. “It was a bit of a different switch…practicing at running back, but it was fun” Creasey said after the game. When asked if it was difficult to go back out at QB in the second half, he simply replied “I was back in my zone.”
“He is a kid that has a burning desire to be out on the field in any capacity and do whatever he can for the team” Coach Martin said about Creasey after the game.
The only other scoring for the Longhorns came late in the 3rd Quarter when a Kellyville fumble was recovered by Will Jasper in the end zone. Kellyville scored a few times late to seal the game at 62-19.
Jones now will look forward to a matchup at Millwood next week. The Longhorns now find themselves in a four way tie for first place in District 2A-2. Crossings Christian, Prague, Chandler and Jones all sit at 3-1. “All we can do is play the games in front of us.”
The Longhorns have one week until the big matchup with Millwood.
