JACKSON — Jackson Academy’s combination of a balanced offense and a tenacious defense were too much for Adams County Christian School to overcome as the Raiders defeated the Rebels 35-14 Friday night.

ACCS led Jackson Academy 14-7 late in the first quarter thanks to a 31-yard touchdown pass from Davis Sharp to George Scott and Julian Wilson’s 77-yard fumble run for a touchdown.

Jackson Academy took the momentum away from the Rebels late in the first half when Hunt Stevens threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Noah Thigpen that tied the game 14-14 heading into halftime.

The Raiders took the lead for good with 9:49 to go in the third quarter on Webb Strickland’s 2-yard touchdown run. He would add a 3-yard touchdown run later on in the quarter. Toryn Steed scored on a 2-yard touchdown run, his second of the game with 7:04 to go in the game.

Despite the two early touchdowns, ACCS had a hard time moving the ball against Jackson Academy’s defense. The Rebels had just five first downs and 142 yards of total offense.

ACCS (0-2) will look to finally get in the winning column next Friday night when it hosts Bowling Green School.
