HUNTSVILLE – The Jets took off early on their flight towards a 49-0 thrashing of Huntsville at Louis Crews Stadium at Alabama A&M University Friday night. With just two minutes into the first quarter Dylan Blackburn got into the end zone with a 35-yard rushing TD. It just got better for James Clemens (2-2, 2-0) in their second Class 7A, Region 4 win of the season.

For the Panthers (3-1, 1-1), it was going to be a long night.

With three minutes left in the first quarter, Jets quarterback Conner Cantrell connected Chris Hope for a 65-yard pass for a second TD. Jesse Rowe’s PAT was good.

The with mere seconds left in the opening quarter Cantrell completes another scoring pass, this time to Jonathan Hammonds, to put the Jets lead at 21 points before the second quarter could even get underway.

Cantrell had four touchdown passes for the night, the third coming in the second quarter with a pass to Dylan Blackburn. It was followed by a scoring pass to Chris Baker before the half.

By the half Cantrell completed 8-of-10 passes for 176 yards to give the Jets a 42-0 lead before sitting out the rest of the game.

Chase Starling later added a 4-yard touchdown run and threw a 54-yard scoring pass to J’Taveon Elliott.
