ARLINGTON - For the first time in school history the Mansfield Summit Jaguars improved to 7-0 as they blasted the Arlington Seguin Cougars (4-3, 1-3) 49-7 on Thursday night at Wilemon Field. It was a flat out dominating performance by Summit as they held Seguin to just 81 yards of offense and forced two turnovers.
Summit wasted little time taking a 6-0 lead on the game’s opening drive as QB Braden Nolen threw a 46 yard touchdown pass to a wide open Medric Robinson, the lead would grow to 13-0 late in the quarter as Nolen tossed his second touchdown pass of the night on a perfectly thrown slant to Lane Schwab from 14 yards out.
Summit would put the game out of reach in the second quarter as Nolen’s 44 yard run would set up a five yard touchdown run by Derek Johnson to make it 20-0. After an interception by DB Michael Bridgford set up the Jaguars in Seguin territory, SHS needed just one play to make it 27-0 as Nolen lofted a 27 yard scoring strike to Jordan Lawson.
Arlington Seguin would finally answer back with a 13 play 65 yard drive scoring on a 10 yard scoring run by Londarious Brown to make it 27-7. Mansfield Summit would answer right before halftime as kicker Josue Munoz drilled a 53 yard field goal with plenty to spare making it 30-7 at the halftime break.
The second half was mostly filled with backups seeing plenty of playing time, Summit would get on the board after a Seguin three and out to start the third quarter as RB Fred Adams scored from 14 yards out extending the lead to 37-7. On the next series the Jaguars defense would step up as Bridgford was in the right place at the right time as a bad snap was kicked around until Bridgford fell on the ball in the end zone for a Summit touchdown and a 43-7 edge. The Jaguars would add on two more Munoz field goals for the final margin of 49-7 and a complete and total domination of a banged up Arlington Seguin squad.
