In the first game inside Jelsma Stadium, the seventh grade team was on the board in the first 15 seconds when Coffman dashed into the north end zone with a 74-yard kickoff return.and a two-point conversion from running back Hector Goosby.

The Jets offense were forced to a 3-and-out on their opening drive to set up the next Jays score.

Again, it was Coffman on the first play from scrimmage. This time took off for a 42-yard score on near the sideline. The point after was no good and just 2:13 into the game the Jays held a 14-0 lead.

On their next possession, Guthrie needed just three plays to increase the score, 20-0. The highlight of the series was a 44-yard pass from Coffman to Bo Robbins down to the 3-yard line. The drive was capped off by Goosby’s 3-yard run.

Coffman finished the Jays scoring with a 41-yard touchdown run.

On the three offensive touchdown, the Jays ran just six plays.
