After the Westmoore defense forced Norman North (2-1) to turn the ball over on downs, West orchestrated a nine-play drive that resulted in his 1-yard TD run early in the fourth.

Norman North quarterback Peyton Gavras immediately responded with a 55-yard TD pass.

But the next possession, West found Lee in traffic for a 23-yard, game-clinching TD pass. Lee finished with 157 yards receiving on four catches.

“It's just a normal thing to do this in practice now,” Lee said. “To put it out there where everybody can see it, I think we did well.”

While the Jaguars' offense piled up more than 400 yards, their defense held the Timberwolves to just 226, of which 215 came through the air.

And after last week's stunning loss to Southmoore in double overtime, the Jaguars wanted to make a statement.

And much like the one Langford delivered, it was received loud and clear.

“Our guys played really well,” Langford said. “We turned them into a passing team.

“It kind of rights the ship for us and gets that confidence back to us because we beat a good football team.”
