Jay blasts Sequoyah, dampens Indians' playoff hopes

JAY – Jay quarterback Brandon Weaver ran for threetouchdowns and threw for another as the Jay Bulldogs led from start to finish in a dominant 48-14 win over Sequoyah-Tahlequah on Friday.

With a win next week and a loss by the Indians against either Hilldale or Lincoln Christian over the final two weeks the Bulldogs (4-4 overall, 2-3 in District 3A-7) will return to the playoffs for the third straight season.

Weaver broke open a scoreless game late in the first quarter when he found a streaking Hayden Cunningham down the right sideline for a 57-yard pass completion to the Sequoyah 1. The sophomore quarterback scored on a sneak on the next play and Derick Shrum ran in the two-point conversion for an 8-0 lead.

After Sequoyah (4-4, 3-2) fumbled the ball away on the subsequent possession, Weaver finished off another drive with a quarterback sneak to make it 15-0.

The two teams then traded long kickoff returns. Nick Kingfisher went first for Sequoyah, sailing down the sideline for an 85-yard touchdown which made it 15-8. Kong Vang then returned the favor for the Bulldogs, going 70 yards to the five-yard line, with Weaver scoring on another sneak two plays later to make it 22-8.

The Bulldogs would take a 25-14 lead into the locker room only to come out and finish things off in the third quarter. Jay took the third quarter kickoff and covered 71 yards in 11 plays before Christian Duffield scored from seven yards out to make it 32-14.

Duffield would break loose for a 24-yard run to spark another touchdown drive later in the third, with Weaver finding Brett Pritchett over the middle for a 20-yard scoring strike to effectively put the game out of reach.

A high snap on a punt would lead to a Sequoyah safety near the end of the third, then Brooks Carroll added the coup de grace with a 46-yard dash on the second play of the fourth quarter for the final margin.
