BISMARCK(NewsDakota.com)- Jamestown’s trip to play the state’s No. 1 team was over in a hurry. The Demons jumped out on their first drive and were never threatened. Bismarck High rolled to a 62-6 win.
Justin Thorson set the tone on the game’s first play as he sacked Matt Grounds for a loss, one of three sacks Thorson had on the day. Following a Jay punt, Ben Jolliffe hooked up with Brett Adam on a dump pass that Adam broke contain and rumbled for the opening score.
When the dust cleared from a miserable first half for Jamestown, they trailed 55-0 and were well into the negative on total offense. On three occasions the Demons scored within 45 seconds of their previous score.
Layne Johs, one of (if the not the) states best tailbacks, finished with a pair of scores. One of those strikes coming from 82-yards away when he busted up the middle and was gone by the time he reached the Jamestown line-backing corps.
Jamestown didn’t do anything to help their cause as they turned the ball over twice on fumbles, one was on a kick-off. Following both turnovers the Demons scored within three plays.
Grounds hooked up with Sean Lindberg for a 56-yard touchdown in the second half to get the Jays on the scoreboard. The only Demon touchdown came on a scoop-and-score following an Anthony Cook fumble.
The Blue Jays go to 1-5 on the season and will host Grand Forks Central this Friday at Ernie Gates Field before heading to Williston the following week.
