The South Central Timberwolves withstood a ferocious third quarter comeback attempt by Jetmore and defeated the Longhorns 36-22 in a homecoming spoiler. South Central remains undefeated with the win and improves to a 4 - 0 record.
    Neither team's offense could get on track in the first half.  A Jetmore mistake allowed the Timberwolves to score first.  Facing a fourth down with 14 yards to go on their own 27-yard line, the Longhorns' long snap sailed over the punter and was recovered by South Central's Levi Miller in the end zone for a Timberwolf touchdown.  The conversion attempt failed and the Timberwolves were up 6-0.
    South Central scored the only offensive touchdown in the first half when Trae Beck scored from one yard out.  Again, the two-point attempt was unsuccessful and the Timberwolves led 12 - 0 midway through the second quarter.
    Jetmore was flagged for an intentional grounding penalty while in their own end zone resulting in a safety and gave South Central a 14 - 0 lead at the half.
    Halftime adjustments seemed to work in favor of the Jetmore offense. The Longhorns reached the end zone three times in the third quarter.
    On the first play from scrimmage after the intermission senior running back Derrick Snodgrass took a handoff and raced 66 yards for a Longhorn touchdown.  The PAT failed and Jetmore trailed 14 - 6. 
    “We changed up some things at halftime,” Longhorn coach Chad Cohoon said.  “We went back to Josh Appel at quarterback in the second half. He played a big game, he deserved to play. We needed something positive and he was a positive”. 
    Two plays after the Longhorn's first touchdown Jetmore recovered a South Central fumble in Timberwolves's territory.  It only took Jetmore four plays to drive the 25 yards to the end zone.  Josh Appel carried the ball for the two point conversion and the game was tied at 14 each.
    “Jetmore came out and popped us in the mouth in the third quarter,” said South Central coach Matt Smith. “They (Jetmore) proved they could play from behind They fought tooth and nail. It was just a great game tonight, two good league teams going against each other and just getting after it”.
    The two quick Jetmore touchdowns seemed to wake up the South Central offense.  On the third play of their next possession Beck hit Jordan Webster on a crossing route for a 45-yard Timberwolf touchdown. Miller caught a Beck pass in the end zone for the two-point conversion and South Central was back on top 22 - 14.
    Jetmore came right back when Snodgrass returned the ensuing kickoff across midfield to the Timberwolves 34-yard line.  Four plays later Snodgrass carried the ball over the left side, cut back against the defense, and scored from 18 yards out.  Evan Kreger crossed the goal line on the two-point try and the game was tied again at 22 - 22.
    All the offensive firepower died at the end of the third quarter, though.  Both teams traded punts until midway through the fourth quarter when South Central put together a ten-play drive that covered 61 yards.  The big play of the drive was a fourth- and-inches quarterback keeper on the Longhorn three-yard line.  Beck called his own number and the sneak gained South Central just enough for another first down.
    From there Jordan Webster carried the ball in for the go-ahead touchdown.  Beck added the two-point conversion on the ground and South Central led 30 - 22.
    After recovering a Jetmore fumble in Jetmore territory, Beck scored on a 32-yard keeper to seal the victory for South Central.
    “South Central is a good team”, Cohoon said, “But we only played one quarter out of four.”  The Longhorns drop to 1 - 3 as they prepare for district play next week.
