Huskies Blank Caledonia in Class AA State Quarterfinal
Jackson County Central football blanked the Caledonia Warriors 41-0 during Thursday night’s Class AA State Quarterfinal at Mayo High School in Rochester.
The Huskies defense forced a three-and-out to begin the battle of unbeaten teams and then Roman Voss powered his way to a six-yard rushing touchdown on JCC’s first drive. Voss punched it in from one yard away on their next drive after a Ben Dahlin interception.
JCC led 14-0 after the first quarter. The Warriors missed a field goal before Voss and Dahlin connected for a 61-yard touchdown in the second quarter.
The Huskies made another defensive stand in that frame and led 21-0 at halftime. Voss broke free for a 39-yard rushing touchdown on JCC’s first drive of the third quarter.
Seth Stai scored on a 23-yard run later in the third.
Stai also scored a 4-yard TD in the fourth as JCC made a game that many expected to be a back-and-forth heavyweight fight into a runaway win.
