Reynolds makes early waves in loss to Jesuit
|#4 Jesuit Crusaders|
BEAVERTON — Reynolds came to Cronin Field and rocked the boat with some early waves, but Jesuit calmed the seas and raced away for a 45-7 second-round playoff win Friday night.
The Raiders caused some nervous moments when its defense forced the Crusaders into a rare three-and-out on its opening possession.
Reynolds took the ball and moved down the field in chunks with Kehdon Fletcher pulling in a 14-yard catch, and QB Jaden Hawkinson finding his way through the middle for 11 yards.
The Raiders would fire a pass too high for Fletcher in the back corner of the end zone and went wide right on a 29-yard field goal try.
Jesuit would score on its next three drives, including touchdowns 20 seconds apart, to end the first quarter in front 21-0 after QB Will Spitznagel found younger brother Luke on a 9-yard touchdown pass.
The No. 4-ranked Crusaders host Tigard in the quarterfinals at 7 p.m. Friday.
