Jets celebrate homecoming by routing Florence, 51-20

MADISON — The Jets took control early in its Class 7A, Region 4 showdown against Florence to cap-off a week-long homecoming celebration.

James Clemens built a 37-0 lead by the second quarter and cruised to 51-20 victory at Madison City Schools Stadium. The Jets (3-2, 3-0) extended its win streak in Region 4 games to 10 in handing the Falcons their worst regular-season loss since 2010.

The Jets were 7-0 in the region last year and are off to a 3-0 start this season

Florence (2-3, 1-2) fumbled on the second play of the game to set up the Jets’ first score and things only got worse afterward.

James Clemens scored touchdowns on five of its six first-half possessions and added a safety to build a 37-7 lead at intermission.

Connor Cantrell tossed two touchdown passes to Chris Hope, Dylan Blackburn ran for two more and had a game-high 104 yards on 17 carries and Chance Starling also contributed a touchdown pass and TD run to lead James Clemens. The Jets piled up 398 total yards.

“I’m really proud of how fast our kids started and how physical our kids played,” said Jets coach Wade Waldrop. “I thought we really set the tone early for how the game was going to be played.”

This was Florence’s second trip to Madison City Stadium in a week. The Falcons defeated Bob Jones last week, 55-24.
James Clemens will have an off-week before hosting Gadsden City on Thursday, Oct 3.
