Jr. ’Jackets finish
on winning note

Greenfield Middle School ended its 2012 football season on a positive note Tuesday night at West Carroll with a 28-12 win to finish with a 2-6 record.
The Yellowjackets’ head coach said it felt good to end the season with a win.
“We went out on a positive note,” head coach Hall Blackman said. “We did well through the air, and quarterback Will Northcutt had a good night.”
Northcutt moved the ’Jackets down the field with a series of passes in the first quarter and ran it in from one yard out to give his team the early lead.
Running back Dusty Irby got in on the aerial fun later in the first half with a 25-yard halfback pass to Truman Greub. Irby scored on an eight-yard sweep in the third quarter for Greenfield’s third score.
Jacob Lewis finished out the scoring for the Yellowjackets on a short run later in the second half.
Irby also had an interception for Greenfield. Blackman said the defense played a great game led by Kody Mealer, Lewis and Northcutt.
“The defense played did good and had a great game,” Blackman said. “Those four kids really stepped up tonight. Northcutt and Lewis did their job at the linebacker position.”
