JACKSON-The Don Connor Cup will remain as it has since its inception in the halls of Jackson Memorial High School as the Jaguars once again manhandled their crosstown rivals at Jackson Liberty.
In the first quarter, Vincent Lee needed just 2 yards to score two touchdowns to put Memorial out with an early lead. A one yard goal line pass from Dan Barker and a 1 yard goal line rush by Lee got things going for Memorial.
In the second quarter, Mikey Gawlik ran 23 yards for a touchdown, but Jared Calhoun, who was 5 for 6 with extra point kicks missed the uprights this time around.
Kyle Johnson stunned Jackson Liberty and their fans with a second quarter 58 yard punt return for a touchdown to make the score 34-0 at half time with the addition of a 57 yard pass from Dan Barker that Johnson took to the end zone.
In the third quarter, Liberty was on the Memorial 5 yard line, poised to break the shutout, but a fumbled ball was recovered by Gawlik who ran it back 95 yards to seal the Lions’ fate.
