THE ,ster THURSDAY, September 18, 2014 Football, from page 14 Quincy opened the first quar- ter by stuffing the Vikings on a fourth and one at their own 35- yard line. After taking over on downs, the Jacks marched down the field covering 65 yards in just over three and a half minutes. They converted a fourth down and capped the drive with Lind- quist scrambling for a 6-yard score. Gil Avila's point-after gave Quincya 7-0 lead. "The first offensive drive was very emotional and after we scored there was a big emotion- al energy drain, but the players kept on fighting," Wallace said. After trading possessions, Selah took over on Quincy's 35- yard line and knotted the game at %7 after a 6-yard pass from Montana Blehm to Vance Wood toward the end of the first quar- ter. The Vikings took a 14-7 lead in the second quarter after a 2-yard run by Blehm. Both scores came offQuincy fumbles. "Our team is built on ball con- trol offense and a physical de- fense. For the most part we did both of those. However, we need to work on turnovers and fum- bles. Some of the fumbles we re- covered, but the loss of yardage and momentum still killed the drive," Wallace said. "Our defense and special teams did a good job for most of the night of keeping us in the game. Offensively, we took a step forward in the offensive line play and their ability to cre- ate lanes for our backfield." There was no scoring in the third quarter, despite a pick-6 by Riley Nelson (four tackles). An inadvertent whistle nullified the senior's touchdown, but he was still credited with the intercep- tion. The Jacks forced several Viking turnovers and limited Wood to 83 yards. "After the first half we talked with our guys about finding the slants and taking them away. Ri- ley dropped into the passing lane and made a great return," said defensive coordinator Jonathan Barker. "Steven Gomez had a great block. Having that play nullified reduced our momentum but we punched it in anyway. 'tOur overall defensive per- formance is improving. We took the ball away four times but could have had more. Our main goal was to prevent Vance Wood from having a big night on the ground. (201 yards rushing vs. Cle Elum) and we accomplished that." Quincy still scored off the turnover.
