GRAND FORKS (NewsDakota.com)- Taylor Orr and the Blue Jays made quite an impression in game one of the new season when they piled up over 450 yards of total offense on their way to a 46-12 demolition of Grand Forks Central last night at Cushman Field.
Orr paced the Jays with 237 yards on the ground including three touchdown runs. Two of which came from inside the five, the other was a 45-yard touchdown run in the third quarter.
Central trailed 13-0 with just a minute left before halftime and they found the endzone with seven seconds remaining in the half when quarterback Jake Mussman found Chanceler Devier for 26-yards. That made the halftime score 13-6.
But Jamestown would own the third quarter scoring three times en route to 33 second half points, thanks in part to five Central turnovers. Three of those turnovers lead directly to Jamestown points.
Junior QB Ross Monson had a pair of touchdown passes and also ran one in to put the game on ice late in the third. His first scoring strike went 40-yards to sophomore TE Logan Anderson who flattened a defender at the 5-yard on his way to pay-dirt.
The other passing touchdown came midway through the fourth to WR Joey Gebhardt, who caught three balls on the night.
Jamestown will head to Ernie Gates Field next week to host their home opener against the Mandan Braves. The Braves lost to South 48-14 last night.
Kick-off is scheduled for 7pm on 1400 KQDJ and NewsDakota.com.
