Jefferson Dragons feast on Lions 29-16

It was homecoming night at King High School this Friday...as the Lions were playing host to the defending state champion Jefferson Dragons.  And from the get go neither team could get anything going offensively.

But by the second quarter the Dragon finally awoke from their slumber to rattle off three touchdowns.  The first was an 8 yard run by Deiondre Porter, then Charles Booth had a pick 6 that he returned 45-yards for the score, and in the final minutes before half Deiondre Porter threw 53-yards to Adrian Jenkins for the score.

Coming out of the half, King looked like different team as they played with more intensity. But it was the visiting Jefferson Dragons who scored first on Shaquille Speights 57 yard dash down the sideline.  By this point it was 29-0 and Jefferson began clearing their bench.

King did score but by this time it was too little too late as Greg Windham threw 26 yards to Taylor Smith-Gonzalez.
