Pat Johnson

St. Frederick receiver Pat Johnson reels in an acrobatic 31-yard catch against Delhi Charter in Friday's scrimmage. 

FINAL: Jonesboro-Hodge 12, St. Frederick 7

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 A sack and a false start put the Warriors behind the sticks and St. Frederick couldn't recover. A turnover on downs all but seals a victory for the Tigers. (JH 12-7, 1:00, SF 38) 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rightsell picked up a first down with his feet and followed the conversion with a nine-yard pass to Pat Johnson, as the Warriors cross the 40-yard line. (JH 12-7, 2:41) 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TOUCHDOWN — A.J. Blundell blocked St. Frederick's punt and fell on it in the end zone for the touchdown. (JH 12-7, 3:25)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The scoreboard is still out but just got word it's roughly three minutes to go in the half. St. Frederick was going in reverse and committed yet another fumble. This time the Warriors were able to fall on it to set up a punt from the Warriors' own 9-yard line. (SF 7-6, SF 9) 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 The ensuing play was an interception by Pat Johnson for the Warriors. St. Frederick takes over at its own 20-yard line. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

St. Frederick's first play on offense results in a fumble by Rightsell. Rightsell could not corral the snap and Jonesboro-Hodge fell on the loose ball. (SF 7-6, SF 15) 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A one-yard gain followed by two incomplete passes set up a 26-yard field goal attempt. The kick was no good. Despite multiple turnovers this half, St. Frederick's defense has controlled the line of scrimmage and shut down anything and everything through the air. (SF 7-6, no time available) 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jonesboro-Hodge linebacker Connor Webb picked off Rightsell at the 10-yard line. (7-6 SF, no time available, SF 10) 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Warriors gang tackled Hassen in the backfield for a sack on third-and-long. No harm, no foul after the turnover. St. Frederick's average starting field position has been inside the 15-yard line this half. (SF 7-6, 6:47, SF 14) 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 The Warriors attacked Jonesboro-Hodge deep and paid for it. Jaylen Kendrick made an acrobatic one-handed interception to regain possession for the Tigers. (SF 7-6, SF44, 8:11) 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

St. Frederick's defense holds tough after a personal foul on the punt gave the Tigers excellent field position. The Warriors force a three-and-out and will take over at their own 12-yard line. (7-6 SF, 8:33) 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

St. Frederick opens the second half with a three-and-out. Warriors punt it back to the Tigers. (7-6 SF, 10:17, JH 37)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 HALF

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rightsell rolled to his and found Beau Bennett uncovered near the back of the end zone for the touchdown. Will Ellender's extra point gives the Warriors a 7-6 advantage. (0:22) 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A roughing the passer penalty placed the ball inside the 33-yard line. Rightsell picked up another first down with his legs before he took a late hit out of bounds and drew more flags. The personal foul placed the Warriors inside the 10-yard line with 30 seconds to play. (6-0 JH)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A muffed punt was recovered by St. Frederick's Gordon Bennett, who returned it all the way for the score. However, you can't advance a muffed punt. The Warriors take over at the JH47 with 45 seconds to play in the half. (6-0 JH) 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A pre-snap penalty backed St. Frederick inside the 1, but quarterback Alex Rightsell picked up a first down with his feet on back-to-back play-action plays. (6-0 JH, SF 19, 2:05)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A deep attempt falls incomplete on third down, setting up another punt for the Tigers. St. Frederick will take over at its own 2-yard line. (6-0 JH, 4:46, SF 2)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jonesboro-Hodge faced a third-and-medium near midfield, and quarterback Caleb Hassen converted by making a few players miss in the backfield and finding Jaylen Kendrick for the first time. (5:13, SF 43)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

St. Frederick goes three-and-out on the ensuing possession and punt the ball back to the Tigers at Jonesboro-Hodge's 41-yard line. The Warriors have run five plays for five yards and one fumble. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tigers quarterback Caleb Hassen found a wide-open Acarian Tatum for a 20-yard touchdown for the first score of the game. (6-0 Jonesboro-Hodge, no time available) 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Alex Rightsell connected with Pat Johnson for a short gain, but in an effort to pick up extra yards, Johnson fumbled. Jonesboro-Hodge recovered the fumble on St. Frederick's 23-yard line. (Scoreboard is out so no time available at this time)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After a LaJavion Nichols first down, tackles for loss by St. Frederick's Beau Bennett and Gordon Bennett set up a 3rd-and-long for Jonesboro-Hodge. Another tackle for loss, this time by Caleb Scurfield, led to a punt by Tigers.
