Jesuit 40, Lennard 0

RUSKIN — One week after a heartbreaking loss to Robinson, Jesuit shut out Class 2A, District 5 rival Lennard on the road.

"We knew that we (needed) to finish strong tonight," Jesuit coach Joe Ross said. "We needed to come out and make a statement."

Jesuit's Bobby Eveld hit 15 of 22 pass attempts for 255 yards and three touchdowns. The Tigers had two touchdown drives of 60 yards of more in the first half.

Jesuit's offense really got going in the third quarter, scoring touchdown on all of three of their possessions. Robby Garcia and Rusty Davis had short rushing scores, and Eveld hit Bryce Walker for a 49-yard TD.

The game ended on a fumble recovery and 20-yard TD return by Taylor Doan.
