Led by the play making ability of Jayce Owens, the Jr Pee Wee Bucks emerge with a 22-12 victory in a very spirited and highly contested battle. Offensive guards Jamar Strickland and Emmit Anderson anchored the offensive line that allowed Owens to make big play after big play at crucial times in the game to help the Jr Pee Wee Bucks keep their playoff hopes alive. Safety, Zaden Mc Mennis, paced the the Jr Buckaroo defense that was able to limit the big plays of the potent Jr Pee Wee Bulldogs offense. Jordan Curtis, Braden Spaulding helped contain the outside rushing attack, while twins Saxxon and Jaxxon McKoy plugged the inside running lanes. The Jr Bucks improve to 5-1 on the season and need just one more victory, with two games remaining, to guarantee a playoff berth.
The Pee Wee Buckaroos’ Christian Williams returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown, setting the tone for their contest as the Pee Wee Bucks cruised to a 44-0 victory. Once Williams got his hands on the ball and found a crease down the left sideline, there was little doubt that the speedster would reach the endzone for the games first score. The Pee Buckaroos had several players reach the endzone, as Quarterback Treason Parlor scored two touchdowns and two 2-point conversions, Williams added two more touchdowns to go along with his kickoff return, Derwin Goodwin got into the scoring act with a touchdown of his own. Not to be left out on the scoring barrage, Dauntee Green and Derrick Goodwin chipped in 2-point conversions to round out the scoring for the game. The unrelenting Jr Pee Wee Bucks defense, led by Kaden Blackman, Ahmad Murphy, Landen Tate and Romahd Boone made sure there was little running room for the opposing offense as they held the Jr Bulldog offense in check. With the win, the Pee Wee Buckaroos improve to 6-0 and secure no less than and #2 seed for the playoffs, however, they are eyeing an undefeated season and the overall #1 playoff seed on their way to the ultimate goal of becoming the 2021 Pee Wee Super Bowl Champions.
