DALLAS - The Dallas Molina Jaguars (4-3, 2-2) kept their slim playoff hopes alive with a 28-14 win over the Dallas Adamson Leopards (3-4, 0-4) Thursday night at Sprague Stadium. Sophomore running back Lynden Edwards was the key cog for the Jaguars attack accounting for three touchdowns on the evening. Penalties and mistakes kept Adamson from making this an even closer game as two turnovers, a blocked punt and 12 penalties isn't winning football.
Molina opened up the scoring late in the first quarter on a 24 yard run by Edwards making the score 6-0 as the PAT run was no good. Adamson would jump out to a 7-6 lead midway through the second quarter as quarterback Keith Jackson scored from a yard out, the score was set up by a fumble recovery from Adamson DL Jose Ramos. Molina would come up with a big play right before the half as with 17 seconds left and facing a third and seven, Edwards would haul in a 14 yard touchdown pass from Ivan Castellon right on the sideline to put the Jaguars up for good at 13-7.
Molina would extend the lead to 21-7 early in the third quarter, the key play for this sequence was a blocked punt by Molina DL Jonathan Diaz. Two plays later Edwards scored from 40 yards out to all but put the game out of reach. Adamson would make another huge mistake on their next drive fumbling the ball away and MHS would again take full advantage as Castellon scored on a two yard run making it 28-7.
Adamson tried fighting back moving the ball to the Molina 32 on their next series but another lost fumble ended any hopes of a miracle comeback. Adamson did tack on a late score from Jackson for the final margin of 28-14. Molina will look to keep their playoff hopes alive next week as they take on Kimball while Adamson will try and get their first district win next week against South Oak Cliff.
