EDGARD – It took Jeremy Jackson just seven carries to rack up his third 100-yard game in as many starts as West St. John defeated East Iberville handily, 57-6.

“We know that we were up against a team that didn’t have the numbers in its favor,” said West St. John coach Robert Valdez. “We went out looking to improve ourselves and work on our base stuff. We went back to basics and played with consistency.”

Jackson rushed for exactly 100 yards and three touchdowns on his seven attempts, including touchdown runs of 49, 5 and 30 yards.

Quad Howard and Denzel Pierre also added touchdown runs of four and 16 yards respectively.

The Ram defense got in on the scoring act, as Kylum Favorite and Darzil Washington each scored on interception returns.

Quarterback Mark Wright attempted just two passes for West St. John (3-4, 2-0), completing one of them for a 26-yard touchdown to Jarius Moll.

West St. John led 43-0 at halftime. East Iberville (0-7, 0-2) scored in the late stages of the game, on a 54-yard touchdown run by Mick Brooks. The Tigers finished with just 87 total yards.

Valdez said that unlike last year’s game with East Iberville, a sloppy affair that saw the Rams deal with a slew of turnovers despite a win, this year’s game saw a more well-prepared Rams team participate.

“We had a good week of practice. The focus level was good,” said Valdez. “Last year we took a step backwards and really didn’t play well at all. This year, we stayed on schedule.”
