Jefferson 45, Wharton 7

TAMPA — Quentin Williams led Jefferson to victory with 270 yards passing and three touchdowns on 15 completions. Andre Davis had two touchdown catches for the Dragons among his five catches for 57 yards. Jefferson was dominant on both sides of the ball.

The running game was also working for the Dragons with 188 yards and two touchdowns on 20 rushes. LaDarius Moye led the attack with 10 carries for 52 yards and two touchdowns.

After a failed extra point on its first attempt, Jefferson went for 2-point conversions after the next few scores. Christopher Moore threw for one and ran in two more.

Wharton struggled to get anything going on offense with only 126 yards. The only Wildcats score came off a Jefferson turnover which gave them great field position. Tanner Stocker plunged in from 1 yard.
