The Panthers continued their scoring ways in the second half thanks for the most part on their second string. Nathan Smay once again scored his third TD of the night on a 53yrd. romp. After a 23yrd. field goal by Greg Madson made it 45-0, Jerseyville closed out their scoring when RB Josh Vanousdoll scored the final Panther TD of the night on a 5yrd. run. Jerseyville could have scored more, but penalty's reversed 2 Panther scores including a Nathan Smay TD punt return.
As the Jerseyville offense was lighting up the scoreboard in Mascoutah, it was the defense that stole the show. They were big/fast and incredible. Stopping the Indians play after play. The Defense limited Mascoutah to a total of -6 yards.
Special mention has to go the the Jerseyville line of Luke Kallal, Kevin Hughes, Jacob Warford and Brian Ford. The Pantherswho have outscored their opponents 128-7 in the last 3 games, will return to Jerseyville to take on Highland next friday for what could be their the biggest game of the regular season.
