J-D football flattens Fulton

As J-D basked in its return to the post-season, ESM, already in the playoffs, relaxed in the wake of its big win at Oswego.

Taking charge right away, the Spartans sprinted to a 15-0 lead on the Buccaneers in the first quarter. Quarterback Tyler Johnson broke loose for a 74-yard TD run to open the scoring.

ESM's defense forced a safety and, after the free kick, the Spartans put together another scoring drive, Jordan Barton going the final 18 yards for the TD.

In the second quarter, Johnson went to the air, twice connecting on TD passes - 34 yards to Mike Gorney, then 14 yards to Buddy Frigon. Jeff McDuffie went three-for-four on extra points, and ESM was up 29-6 at the half.

Barton, who had 120 rushing yards on 11 carries, added another TD in the third quarter on a seven-yard run as Johnson also threw a one-yard scoring pass to Bobby Campese. Jacquell Cotton came in the fourth quarter and got his first varsity touchdown on a 20-yard run.

ESM (4-2, 3-1 league) returns home next Friday to meet Mexico in the regular-season finale, just as J-D makes its own visit to Oswego in hot pursuit of a third straight win.
