Football: Jefferson 48, Strawberry Crest 7

DOVER — Jefferson took out its frustrations of missing the playoffs a year after winning a state title on Strawberry Crest (1-8, 1-5), prevailing 48-7 Friday.

The Dragons (5-4, 4-2) used a dual quarterback attack of sophomore Deiondre Porter and junior Tyler Small. Each threw three touchdowns in the first half and combined for 326 passing yards.

"It's a great attribute to have two great quarterbacks," Jefferson coach Jeremy Earle said. "They both deserve (to play), both really hard-working kids, and have a chance to play at the next level."

Jefferson's defense didn't allow a first down until the penultimate play of the third quarter, forced seven punts and allowed only 32 total yards. The Chargers' lone score was on a 70-yard kickoff return by Josh Engram.

"Our goal was to go 5-0 the last half of the season and we're right there with one more to go," Earle said.
