With the 2021 season dwindling down, the Broncs football team (6-1) improved its resume with a convincing 42-7 victory over the Evanston Devils (5-2) on a chilly Friday night.
After falling into a large deficit in both of their previous two road games this season, the Broncs came out strong against Evanston, posting a 21-0 shutout at halftime.
Even with the temperature, the Broncs’ offensive game plan was not affected. Quarterback Sadler Smith finished 21-for-25 for 246 yards and two touchdowns, along with 84 yards rushing.
Jackson running back Brody Hasenack ran for 110 yards on 21 carries with a touchdown to pace the ground game.
Through the air, senior Nate Keipert hauled in 110 yards on just three receptions, while fellow senior Sam Scott finished with 97 yards on 10 receptions.
Defensively, the Broncs sacked Evanston quarterback Jaxin Moore eight times while holding the senior to just four total passing yards on the night.
The Devils provided an interesting game plan exercise for the Broncs, featuring a somewhat defunct offensive style of play in the triple-option, which uses several extra players as potential playmakers on each play.
Looking ahead, the Broncs are getting set for their final regular season home game, as they host the Powell Panthers (5-2) this Friday.
Kickoff is set for 5 p.m., with the Senior Night festivities set to begin at 4:25 p.m.
