Offense shows life in loss to Vikings

The score might not tell you everything you need to know about last Friday night’s loss to Selah.
The Vikings won 41-14 over the Jacks, threw for 371 yards and had five passing touchdowns. But Quincy (1-1) hung with them until they stalled out on the Selah 2-yard line after a six-minute, 46-second, 70-yard drive. It was the final straw that broke the camel’s back.
Couple that heart breaking drive with a porous defense in the final minute of the first half and the two drives were too much to overcome. Just after Zac Hunt scored on a 7-yard run to pull Quincy within 21-14, the Vikings took over possession at their own 45-yard line with 1:09 until halftime. It took them 58 seconds before Peter Kuhn hauled in an 11-yard pass from Montana Blehm (28-37-5-371).
The Jacks offense came ready to play as they rolled up 399 yards and scored two touchdowns. Junior Travis Harris had 122 yards on 10 carries, junior Hunt had 72 yards on 11 carries and junior Juan Aguilar had 47 yards on seven carries. Junior quarterback Kaeden Murphy added 38 yards on eight carries and a touchdown, as well as throwing for 102 yards on 8-of-13 passing.
Harris added three catches for 41 yards and sophomore receiver Carlos Solorio had five catches for 46 yards.
On defense, senior Alberto Tafoya had 12 tackles, senior Jonathan Aguirre had nine tackles and junior Adrian Avila added seven tackles.
Next up: The Jacks host Prosser (2-0) at home Friday night at 7 p.m.
