It was a chilly night along the West Virginia-Ohio border, but the Williamstown offense was red hot.

After a 42-6 victory at home over the Parkersburg Catholic Crusaders (2-6), the Williamstown Yellow Jackets (6-2) are one game closer to another run in the playoffs.

Williamstown came out of the gates firing, aggressively moving the ball into Jacket territory on a six-play drive. Senior quarterback Dakota Watson finished the drive, throwing a 20-yard pass to senior Hunter Neely and putting the Jackets up 7-0.

After an unsuccessful Parkersburg Catholic drive, the Yellow Jackets stung again with a 57-yard touchdown pass from Watson to Hunter Neely.

The Crusaders responded with a 10-minute-long drive which carried into the second quarter. On the drive, the Jackets committed six penalties, aiding in the Crusaders offense. Sophomore quarterback Alec Hinton ran the ball in for the Crusaders’ first touchdown, bringing the score to 14-6.

The Yellow Jackets started the second half strong when Watson picked off a pass by Hinton. Although the drive didn’t take the Jackets to the end zone, the momentum leaned in their favor.

The Crusaders’ struggled to contain Williamstown’s high-powered offense. With six minutes remaining in the third quarter, Watson scampered into the end zone for his fourth touchdown of the night. Williamstown danced their way to the endzone twice more in the second half.

With Williamstown firing on all cylinders, Watson finished the night with six touchdowns and 282 total yards.

             In the past two games, the Yellow Jackets outscored their opponents 114-12 and will continue their hunt for their 15th consecutive postseason berth next week against the Tyler Knights.
