Saints win homecoming game
Jones mad
Ean Jones eyes the Smith County quarterback with ill-intent.
A second half explosion propelled the Saints to a perfect 3-0 start on the season as they claimed a homecoming victory over the visiting Smith County Owls, 34-8.The game was nip and tuck during the first half after the Saints took the lead with 3:21 to go in the first quarter as quarterback Briz Trapp hit Josh May in the endzone for a touchdown. Workhorse back Colby Barnes then barreled through Owls until he reached pay dirt, giving his squad an early 8-0 lead before the homecoming crowd.The Owls evened the score after a short Saint punt, kicked from their own endzone. The Smith County quarterback took advantage of the field position and went 20 yards on a quarterback keeper, the conversion making it 8-8 at 5:47 of the second quarter.Trapp immediately went to work on the next drive, hitting May for a 35 yard gain.
