JEFFERSON — Jefferson has been in mid-season form since the season started.
The Dragons (3-0) proved it again on Friday night with a 40-7 win over Class 7A Mountain View at Memorial Stadium.

Malaki Starks had another big stat night, rushing 10 times for 128 yards for two touchdowns and was 3 of 9 for 89 yards passing with a score. Reese Johnson added 70 yards on eight carries.
Starks was part of the Dragon's first two scores in the opening quarter -- a 73-yard touchdown run and a 46-yard pass to Kolton Jones. Jordan Perry pushed the Dragons' lead to 20-0 when he intercepted Mountain View quarterback Nyquel Austin and rank it back 25 yards for the score.
Starks scored in the second quarter as time ran out on a 21-yard scamper, and Paxton Corkery added a scored on a 3-yard run midway through the third quarter. Carter Stephenson tacked on the final score with 43 seconds remaining in the third quarter on a 16-yard run.
