Lopez leads Jets to score 47 points in first half, downing Athens in home opener

MADISON – James Clemens quarterback Gio Lopez threw four touchdown passes and ran for a fifth in the Jets’ 47-7 win over Athens. The game marked James Clemens’ first home game of the season and second big win. They shut down Murphy in a road-trip to Mobile, 32-0, last week.

In Friday’s home opener, Athens actually led 7-0 in a game where all the scoring came in the first half.

The Golden Eagles scored early on Jaden Jude’s 52-yard touchdown pass to Dylann Roper with 11:20 to go in the first quarter.

After that it was all James Clemens. Lopez ran for a 15-yard touchdown, Dante Snodgrass had an 82-yards run and Lopez connected with Keymari Pittman on a 60-yard scoring pass.

James Clemens led 25-7 after the first quarter. The Jets scored three touchdowns in the second quarter on passes from Lopez of 32 yards to Pittman, 11 yards to Kobe Johnson and 63 yards to Terence Cunningham.

The Jets will return to Madison City Stadium next week for the annual Madison Bowl. They play visitor to cross-city rival Bob Jones. The Patriots will be coming off their season-opening loss to Buckhorn, 17-18.
