North Webster hosted Jena Friday night in a matchup of 3A teams with lofty playoff aspirations.
In what was a close, low-scoring contest for most of the night, Jena pulled away late for a 27-13 win at Baucum-Farrar Stadium in Springhill.
North Webster could never find their offensive rhythm on the night while Jena’s offense ate up chunks of clock.
The only score of the first half came in the opening quarter on a methodical drive for the Giants. The halftime score was 6-0 Jena.
The Knights trailed 21-0 in the fourth quarter before senior Jacobreious Walker returned a kick 70 yards for a score.
The Knights would add a second touchdown on a short pass from quarterback Colin McKenzie to tight end Jatareon Robinson. The touchdown ended what was a rough night offensively on a positive note.
The task for North Webster (2-2) is to shake back and be ready to go against a dangerous Jonesboro-Hodge team in Week 5.
The Knights will remain home at Baucum-Farrar Stadium as they look to get back to their winning ways.
