Tristen Jackson had 138 yards and one touchdown to lead Jefferson on the ground. Isaiah Blake added 102 yards on 16 carries, including touchdown runs 13, 2, and 9 yards. He also caught four passes for another 65 yards.

Junior quarterback Evan Shirreffs was 8-of-15 for 136 yards and one touchdown. The Dragons also got field goals from Austin Pankevich (34, 44 yards) and Douglas Giles (32).

Jackson County (0-2) ran just 37 plays on offense. Lewis finished 9-of-19 for 48 yards passing and ran for 16 yards on 10 carries to lead the Panthers.
