The Jupiter Christian Football Team is Rolling Towards a Third Consecutive Undefeated Season with last nights crushing victory, 53-0. All though the entire team looked exceptionally well in last night's game, there were a few players that stood out the most. Running backs Will Powers, son of coach Bill Powers, and Trey Pendergrass had an amazing combined total of 319 rushing yards in their game last night. They also scored 5 touchdowns for the Jupiter Christian Eagles.
Pendergrass, near the end of the first quarter made a 45 yard catch for a touchdown, which was thrown by another star of the game, quarterback Marshyl Rothman. Jupiter Christian coach Bill Powers said that "even though the weather was bad our quarterback still threw well." Marshyl Rothman, a few minutes after the 45 yard pass to Pendergrass, returned a punt for another 70 yard touchdown, but unfortunately for the Eagles a penalty was called and that touchdown did not count.
When the third quarter got under way, Will Powers and Trey Pendergrass both ran in two more touchdowns for the Eagles. Near the end of the game Will's younger brother Ryan Powers, also son of coach Bill Powers, got into the action. He finished the scoring for the Jupiter Christian Eagles with a 48 yard touchdown run. The Jupiter Christian Eagles pulled away with yet another victory. This brings their unbeaten streak to 32 games without a loss. The defense kept the Berean Bull Dogs to only 31 rushing yards, and only 41 pass yards.
Jupiter Christian's football team will have it's real test when they play a team in a much stronger division. Glades Central on October 16th is going to be the toughest game they have ever played. Last night Glades Central played the Clewston Tigers. Glades Central dominated the Tigers 46-0, and intercepted four consecutive passes the Tigers attempted. The Glades Central Raiders are currently ranked number 3 in the South Florida area poll of Beef O'Brady's. If Jupiter Christian can win that game then a Third straight undefeated season and Championship will be in their grasp.
