Austin Reed, #7 and his St. Augustine High School Yellow Jackets football teammates win their homecoming game against Matanzas High School

On Thursday, October 8th, the St. Augustine High School Yellow Jackets junior varsity football team played the Matanzas High School Pirates for their annual homecoming game at Brumley Stadium in St. Augustine.  Wearing their home maroon colored jerseys, the Jackets started the game moving the ball well on offense, but were unable to get any points on the board in the first quarter.  The Pirates defense scored on the Jackets first offensive play of the second quarter when their left defensive end stripped the Jackets running back of the football and returned it 25 yards for the first score of the game.

The St. Augustine High School Yellow Jackets football team got things going in the second quarter on the arm of quarterback Austin Reed, #7, who hit his wide receiver Karim Brown, #8, on a 63 yard post pattern down the middle of the field for a touchdown and a 7-6 lead.  The Jackets scored again in the quarter after a long drive put the Jackets on the Pirates 4 yard line and running back Martrel Storey, #9, ran off tackle to give the Jackets a 13-6 lead.  The final touchdown of the game came in the 3rd quarter when Karim Brown, #8, caught a quick turnaround pass from Austin and ran the ball 38 yards down the sideline for the final TD of the game and a 19-6 lead.  The defense played an excellent game shutting the Pirates offense down for their first shutout of the season and helping the St. Augustine Yellow Jackets football team to improve to 6-0 on the season.

Quarterback Austin Reed, #7, completed 9 of 18 passed for the game with 187 yards, 2 touchdowns and 0 interceptions.  The next game for the JV Jackets football team is their final home game on Thursday, October 16th at 6:00 p.m. against the Palatka High School Panthers.
