QUINCY ‑ Quarterback Dallas Bassett rushed for three touchdowns and completed 15-of-23 passes for 183 yards to led the Quincy Jacks to their first win of the 2013 season, as they turned back the Brewster Bears, 36-14.
“It wasn’t pretty, but it was a win,” coach Stephen Wallace said. “I hope this gets us going now.”
A couple of long Brewster TD runs on third and one put the Bears up 14-6 at the end of the first quarter of play. Quincy hung 10 points on the board in the second quarter to go up 19-14 at the half. The Jacks added seven in the third, and 13 in the fourth quarter to cruise to the 22-point win.
“I was very happy with our defense keeping Brewster off the scoreboard the last three quarters,” Wallace said. “Offensively, we have been focusing a lot on eliminating mistakes that really cost us the first three games. I think we did a better job of that against Brewster … didn’t shoot ourselves in the foot.”
The win over the Bears puts the Jacks at 1-0 in Caribou Trail League play and 1-2 overall. Quincy looks to make it two-in-a-row Friday when the Jacks head to Omak for a game with the Pioneers.
“Omak has a lot of big linemen how are pretty physical,” Wallace said. “They rushed for just under 300 yards against Cashmere, so I expect them to want to pound the ball on us.”
