(5-0/8-2) Jackson blocked a CHS punt, which set up the Ironmen’s first score of the game. Jackson’s Holden Blankenship ran 11 yards for a score, and following the PAT kick, they led 7-0 at 10:56 in the first quarter.

Quarterback Jacob Winters’ 1 yard keeper at 4:30 of the first quarter and PAT kick gave Jackson a 14-0 lead, which held up to end the first quarter.

One of the few highlights for Chillicothe was a Jaiden Cain interception, picking a deflection out of the air.

Cade Wolford scored the first of his two touchdowns in the game on a 21 yard dash at 7:16 in second quarter for a 21-0 advantage.

Jackson would score two more times in the first half. Jacob Winters 1 yard TD run at 4:19 of the second quarter followed by the PAT made it 28-0.

The Ironman held the Cavs and got the ball back with a little more than one minute left in the half. Jackson drove 88 yards and saw Winters scramble for a 21 yard TD run with 4 seconds left in the first half, sending Jackson to the locker room with a 35-0 lead over Chillicothe.

With the 35 point spread, the second half started with a rolling clock, which never lifted the rest of the game.

Cade Wolford added to the Ironmen’s lead to 42-0 on a 12 yard TD run with 4:23 left in the third quarter, which was the score at the end of the third period.

The Cavs best scoring chance came on a field goal try, which went wide-left with 6:45 left in the game.

Jackson freshman Gavin Jones put the final touches on their title win with mostly reserve players in the contest, when Jone plunged into the end zone from 2 yards out with 1:28 remaining, for the final margin of 49-0.

The McDonald’s “Player of the Game” was Jackson’s Cade Wolford.

Chillicothe closes their regular season at (3-2/5-4) and are questionable to make the post-season cut of 16 teams in their region, which would have them on the road- if they advance.

Jackson will definitely be a top 8 team, meaning they will host a first-round game.

The post-season pairings will be released by the OHSAA on Sunday, and will be found on www.littermedia.com

Jackson Wins OT Thriller Over Wheelersburg

Presented By Rathkamp Financial

The (3-2) Jackson Ironmen showed great determination in the second half as they overcame a Wheelersburg rally and leaned on their back-up quarterback in a 21-20 overtime victory over the (2-3) Wheelersburg Pirates, Friday in Jackson in our Litter Media Game of the Week.

(Evan Spires led Jackson at QB in the first half, before leaving with an injury)

Jackson scored first thanks to a scoop and score TD fumble return by Drew Bragg at 9:41 of the first quarter, followed by the PAT kick from Ethan Crabtree for a 7-0 lead.

Wheelersburg capitalized on a fumble recovery of their own, then later saw Ethan Glover score on a 3 yard run at 2:35 of the first quarter. The PAT kick was good, tying the game at 7-7.

The Ironmen grabbed the lead back at 2:33 of the second quarter, when starting quarterback Evan Spires connected with Eli Broermann on a 17 yard TD strike. The PAT kick gave Jackson a 14-7 advantage, which they would take into the locker room at halftime.

After Jackson’s Evan Spires left the game with an injury, Jacob Winters came on in relief to lead the Ironmen’s offense the rest of the game.

With Jackson leading, the Pirates’ Eli Sword provided a key interception deep on Jackson’s side of the field with less than 20 seconds to play in the third quarter. That led to an Ethan Glover TD run from one yard out with five seconds left in the third period. The PAT kick evened the score at 14-14 headed to the fourth quarter.

That’s the way the score remained until late in regulation play, as the Pirates had a couple of possessions that took the ball into Ironmen territory. With 4:13 left in the fourth quarter, the Pirates had the ball at the Jackson 35, but lost the ball on a fumble. Jackson was unable to get anything going and punted to Wheelersburg’s 33 yard line with :38 remaining.

The Pirates crossed midfield and attempted a 51 yard field goal that could have won the game. Braxton Sammons’ gave it a gallant try, but his field goal attempt bounced off the crossbar sending the game to overtime at 14-14.

Wheelersburg won the coin-toss and elected to give Jackson the first possession with the ball. The Ironmen’s Jacob Winters found Cade Wolford on a 12 yard TD pass and their PAT kick made it 21-14 Jackson.

Wheelersburg took their OT possession and also scored on a two yard run making it 21-20. Electing to go for the win, the Pirates went for two points on the PAT try, but Jackson’s defense held on a running play, sealing the home victory 21-20.

Jackson QB Jacob Winters was named McDonald’s Player of the Game.
