James Madison High School shutout W.T.Woodson 24-0 on Saturday to win its home opener and even its record at 1-1. The offense, defense, and special teams all contributed strong performances, but the highlight of the game was the six turnovers caused by the aggressive Warhawk defense.
Madison moved the ball steadily in the first half behind the accurate passing of Dan Powers, seven receptions by Tom House, and the power running of Jacob Hall and Grant Hoffman.
Nick Hoy scored the first touchdown on a one-yard run up the middle. Madison scored its second touchdown when Jordan Durham blocked a Woodson punt and Salvatore Rahner carried the loose ball into the end zone for a score. Nick Dorka added a 24-yard field goal to build a 17-0 lead at the half.
Madison’s defense sealed the win in the second half with a series of drive-ending take-aways. Nick Hoy blocked a punt, Dan Schwab and Manny Momoh recovered fumbles, Connor Douglas intercepted two passes, and Salvatore Rahner added another interception.
Evan Jacquez was all over the field for the Warhawks making eight tackles and catching a touchdown pass for the final score.
Madison’s next game is at 7:30 Sept. 16 against Hayfield at Madison High School.
