The Tri-Cities Prep Jaguars traveled to Waitsburg Friday night to take on the Cardinals on a beautiful Friday afternoon. But it didn’t stay that way for long as a driving wind storm arrived to upset what was a perfect Friday night for high school football.

Three plays into the game, TCP’s sophomore quarterback Evan Sherfey ran 47 yards on a keeper. The play finished for Sherfey at the one yard line and a broken ankle. Running back Noah Elliott moved into the quarterback position and ran for a game high 130 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries. He also completed 7 of 14 passes for 81 yards and a touchdown.

But the night belonged to the Jaguar defense. They held the Dayton-Waitsburg offense to minus 19 yards on the ground and just 188 total yards on the night. 122 of them coming in the 4th quarter after liberal substituting began for the Jags.Kellen Hobson led the Jag defense by collecting 12 tackles, a blocked punt and recovery for a touchdown, and a fumble recovery. Noah Elliott had seven tackles and an interception, while Austin Hiett got an interception in the second straight game. Junior Chris Yniguez had three of the Jaguars six sacks on the night.

The Jags move to 1-1 on the season and will host new EWAC member River View at Chiawana Stadium Saturday night at 6:00 p.m. It will be the first ever football contest between Tri-Cities Prep and River View.
