Hoping to build off of last week’s first victory in 66 tries, the Lincoln Park Railsplitters had a formidable foe against them on Friday night.

The Allen Park Jaguars came into Lincoln Park looking to build on their successful season so far and spoil the Railsplitters final home game. They did just that and came out with a 48-0 victory over Lincoln Park.

“(We’re) not used to playing after a big win,” said Lincoln Park head coach Jamie Grignon. “They executed excellently and we didn’t have an answer.”

It was all Jaguars from the beginning. On the opening kickoff, the Jaguars recovered the onside kick and scored just five plays into the game.

“There are some things we wanted to work on,” said Allen Park head coach Tom Hoover. “The kids played hard. (The) passing game was good; we were about 50/50 with the run and the pass.”

On their second drive the Jaguars scored again, and at the end of the first quarter, it was 14-0 just like that. The Lincoln Park offense couldn’t get anything going past the big Jaguar defense.

The Jaguars tacked on three more first-half touchdowns and led 34-0 at the break.

One of the few things to go right on the night for the Railsplitters was an interception by senior Ja-Vaun Gray off Jaguar quarterback Nick Fulton. That was also one of the few blemishes on the night for Fulton who went 11-for-17 for 251 yards and three touchdowns.

After the first half, Fulton and the first-string offense sat the second half to give the backups some time in. They added two more touchdowns to finish the scoring.

Once again for the Jaguars, running back Manny Andrade led the way offensively for Allen Park. Andrade had three rushing touchdowns and 122 yards on just eight carries.

On the defensive side of the ball for the Jaguars tackle Adam McJunkin contributed on nearly all plays in the first half, racking up a few big tackles to stop the Railsplitters.

Overall, Lincoln Park only had six drives the entire first half. In the second half, they couldn’t execute, but did have a sustainable drive in the third quarter. For nearly 11 minutes, the Railsplitters held onto the ball, starting on their own 21-yard line. It looked like their offense was coming alive, but after 13 plays, on a 4th and 10, Lincoln Park quarterback Shawncory Avery was sacked to end the hopeful drive.

Eight plays later, early in the fourth quarter, the door was shut to any hope of at least a comeback as the Jaguars put up their final touchdown of the night, a 5-yard touchdown run by Dylan Romo.

Among the touchdowns in the first half, Andrade had a 16-yard score and a one-yard score. He also had a a 45-yard touchdown run to start the second half for the Jaguars. Effectively dominating on both sides of the ball, he also intercepted a pass late in the fourth quarter to set up a 25-yard touchdown reception to Ryan Oakley.

Jake Barann also had a touchdown reception in the first half. The final touchdown to end the first half was a 28-yard pass from Fulton to Jake Chapman.

Next week, the Railsplitters (1-6) head to Trenton to battle the Trojans (2-5), while the Jaguars (5-2) head to Carlson to battle with the Marauders (2-4), a place they haven’t won at the last three tries.
