Jets Pull Away From Pesky Chiefs

Coming into tonight's game against Airport the Huron Chiefs knew they would be able to score. The big question would be, could the Chiefs stop the Jets offensive machine. The answer was no as the Jets rolled up nearly 550 yards in total offense with 390 yards coming on the ground.

Huron opened the scoring in the 1st quarter on a 30 yard FG by Zach Richardson after the Jets muffed the opening kickoff. The Jets answered with an 8 play, 72 yard drive that ended with a Daniel Jones touchdown run. Huron would respond with a 5 play, 70 yard drive of their own which ended on an electrifying 35 yard TD run by Sterling Wilson which gave the Chiefs a 10-7 lead with 1:49 to go in the quarter. The Chief lead was short lived as Tyler Pluff scored .20 seconds later on a 53 yard scamper which gave the Jets the lead at the end of the 1st quarter 14-10.

The Jets picked up where they left off by marching 87 yards on 9 plays. Jodeci Mays scored on a 29 yard run and the Jets led 20-10 with 7:36 in the half. Huron would respond by kicking another 30 yard FG which was set up by a Will Brennan 56 yard kickoff return and with 3:57 to go until halftime Airport led 20-13. The Jets would respond again. This time QB Daniel Jones threw a 35 yards TD pass to RB Derek Williams. The play came with 24 seconds left in the half on a 3 and 12 play. That score made the halftime score 26 -13 Airport.

The scoring picked up early in the 3rd quarter as Huron QB Andrew Mayrand hooked up with WR Dave Stockert on a 68 yard scoring strike. The 6-4 Stockert caught the ball across the middle and out raced the Jet defenders to the endzone. That made the score 26-19 with 10:32 left in the 3rd. After Huron forced an Airport punt the Chiefs began to drive again going 48 yards in 8 plays. The drive ended at the Jet 37 yard line when a fake punt attempt was thwarted by the Jet defense. The Jets responded by going 63 yards on 9 plays as Tyler Pluff ran 25 yards to make the score 33-19 with 1:22 left in the 3rd. Once again Huron responded, Sterling Wilson ran 33 yards to get into Airport territory and Andrew Mayrand struck again with a 48 yard scoring strike to Caleb Tavtigian and the score was 33-26 at the end of the 3rd.

With only a touchdown separating the two teams with a quarter to play. Airport responded like a true championship contender. The Jets would score 21 unanswered points in the 4th as Mays scored 2 touchdowns and Williams would score on a 72 yard run. Airport's speed and depth seemed to wear down to Chiefs and the final ended up 54-26 Airport.

For the Jets; Mays finished with 137 yards, Pluff finished with 133 yards and Williams with 112. Daniel Jones was 11-15 for 157 yards and a touchdown and also threw 2 interceptions. For the Chiefs; Mayrand was 13-25 for 215 yards with 2 touchdowns and an interception. Sterling Wilson led the Chiefs ground game with 139 yards on 19 carries and a TD.

Both quarterbacks played well so they are still very close... Williams had a long touchdown catch and Baker and Close led the rest of the receiving for the Jets

Not a "fan" of either team, but what I saw from Airport tonight was amazing. Airports offense had some impressive drives. Huron never really put together a drive. Just a bunch of lucky passes and missed tackle runs. Plenty of weapons on Airports squad. When they want to score, they will.

Those Jets looked amazing tonight! the ground game was intense. i mean seriously 3 athletes with over 100yrds rushing? thats what a talented team with speed has to offer. They turned a close game in the 4th quarter into a blowout that last quarter! 21 unanswered points!?!? And that #22 Williams has some speed! The boy got the ball and outran every kid on the field for that 72yrd un-touched run! Good win jets

Great Blog site! I realize that the true stars are all on the Varsity teams - lets start hearing more about the JV or even Freshman scores - rather hear about those kids than the college level.

Unfortunately I can only post the info I have. I need people to email me JV scores. Only 1 person did that this week so I decided not to post them. I will do the same with the Freshmen scores too if people get me the info.

Wow, Airport really made a statement. Especially after the Freshmen won 82-30(Something), Then the JV won 51-14. Then the incredible 3 headed attack from the Varsity. OUTSTANDING Job Airport offensive line for all 3 Teams.

You have to ask yourself after scores like that. Is the word Defense used in Huron's football program??? After watching the Freshmen & JV games, Huron's players matched Airport's skill level and matched up well quickness and size wise, its just the basics that is missing. I am hopeful that Huron's head coach takes note of the tackle disicplines being taught at all 3 levels.

Regardless, Airports program is becoming the best in the region. And let me say as a Jefferson Grad, with two boys both attending Airport (which kills me). I am thrilled with the fundamentals taught in all the the sports programs at Airport.

Great Job Jets, and Go Jefferson, LOL...

That is because Airport's coach got his start at Monroe Catholic Central under Joe Sanderson.....

I cant believe Joe Sandersen quit coaching 12 years ago and is still teaching. Its usually the other way around, especially with a coaching legend like Joe

Your an idiot Redmand has never coached at SMCC... He coached at monroe

Eric Redmond definitely did coach at Monroe CC. Coached there with Mark Hull who is no coaching with him at Airport.

Call someone an idiot again, when you are the one that is wrong!

Just because someone coached at Monroe before they came to Airport, does not mean that they STARTED at Monroe.

MCC ---> Monroe ---> Airport

BOZO!

your right, Redmond coached at CC before he coached at Monroe. I'm guessing early 80s.

airports offense looked good. give credit to hurons offense for putting up points also. airport needed to step up its pass defense in that game tho.

When ever Airport gets more credit than SMCC, it comes back to Redmond starting at SMCC.

I can't believe how much some of you sound like jealous brothers and sisters when you respond. You like CC better, wah-wah. People are not subjective when they talk about their teams. They are fans of their own teams. You actually expect us to give credit to another team? The proof is in the pudding, as they say. Aside from all the blow-harding going on, we will eventually see how things pan out. I hope Airport loses to Milan, not because I like Milan better, but because I am sick of the bragging. No one likes a sore winner. Grow up.
