Jets Capture Conference Championship

by Patrick Chiesa on August 18, 2014

 The Zanesville Jets only needed one touchdown to secure the Ohio Football League North Conference Championship on Saturday night, defeating the visiting Cleveland Patriots, 6-0, at John D. Sulsberger Memorial Stadium.

Tydell Butcher punched in a 22-yard touchdown late in the 1st quarter for the lone score of the night. The Jets entered the red zone on the drive thanks to a long pass from Tyler Ransom to Nikko Simpson. Simpson got the job done on both sides of the ball, picking off a Tevin Smith pass in the 4th quarter to thwart a Patriots drive.

Cleveland made it down to the Jets 6-yard-line in the 4th, only to be driven back to the 18 after a 12-yard sack courtesy of Steven Johnson. The Pats then missed a 35-yard field goal.

The Jets will take on the Southern Ohio Buckeyes in the championship game. The date and time have yet to be announced.
