Football: Walker 38, Mortimer Jordan 6



Walker (6-2, 6-0 region) jumped in front early on a Tyler Phillips 6-yard run halfway through the first quarter, with Bryant’s TD pass to Key coming four minutes later. Merriweather’s score with 1:46 to play put the score at 14-6, after Caleb Gandy’s extra-point kick from the 8 was blocked; he was good from the normal placement, but a penalty negated the conversion and pushed him back five yards.

Joe Pedrazza hit a 19-yard field goal as time expired in the first half to make the score 17-6 at intermission.

The Vikings wasted little time in the second half, after a three-and-out and short punt set them up at the Jordan 42. Phillips ran for 40 yards on the first play and two on the next to score quickly,

Michael Bridges added a 1-yard scoring charge later in the third period, and reserve Joseph Bell scored with 7:23 left in the game.

Jordan travels to Center Point team next week that’s smarting from an upset from previously-winless Hayden. The winner of that game will get the No. 3 playoff seed from the region, but the Eagles must win to stay alive, while Jordan is in the post-season no matter what.
