JI Trojans beat the Wando Warriors 35-28 in overtime. The win sets up what could be a three or 4 way tie in the region, depending on the outcome of next week’s final regular season game vs Cane Bay.
DQ Vinson had great night for the Trojans, throwing 4 TDS and rushing for 20 yards another TD. The Sr QB finished the evening with a QB rating of 140, going 13 of 19 for 187 yards, while rushing for 62 yards.
Vinson’s favorite target, RJ Hamilton, was business as usual scoring 2 TDS on 4 receptions for 69 yards, in spite of being double covered for most of the evening. Sophomore Jaden Scott benefited from Hamilton’s attention from the defense and scored 2 TDs of his own, hauling in 4 passes for 66 yards. Scott’s long of 40 yards was highlighted by several broken tackles before crossing the goal line. His second TD would come in overtime on a 4th and goal pass from the 5 yard line. Scott was wide open on a “throwback” pass after overwhelming the Wando defender, leaving him on the turf to haul in the game winner!
