North Creek scoops up victory over Inglemoor

Jaguars prevail, 19-0, at Pop Keeney Stadium.

Tyrone Woodard started things off with an electric 99-yard kickoff return to put the North Creek Jaguars ahead and they never looked back.

When the pads stopped smashing after four grueling quarters on Oct. 3 at Pop Keeney Stadium, North Creek stood in the victor’s spot with a 19-0 win over Inglemoor.

Abe Woodward padded the Jaguars’ scoring with a 15-yard fumble return and Wyatt Church booted field goals from 22 and 36 yards out to excite the North Creek faithful.

Following the game, Woodward removed his helmet after celebrating with the Jaguar crowd to discuss the victory.

“Just come out here with a lot of energy, just show up and do our jobs, stick to our assignments and just play ball,” he said of the scenario on the gridiron. “It feels good. We know we can do it, we know we can do a lot more. There’s much more to come.”

North Creek’s burly defense was stellar on the night and running back Ryan Aceto moved the ball well to set up the field goals.

“It felt great. I know we started off slow, but we picked it up in the second half and we improved a lot on our offense. It was great to see,” Aceto said.

Before the game, Aceto said the team’s discussion focused on: “If we just did our job, we’d be successful and we’d come out with a win — and that’s what we did.”
