It looked like the Belmond-Klemme Broncos would be able to hang with the sixth-ranked team in Class 1 during the second round match-up at Gowrie Oct. 23.
The Southeast Valley Jaguars were trapped deep in their own territory and looked ready to punt after a three-and-out on the first drive of the game. But the Jaguars used a fake punt to convert the fourth down, and steadily marched down the field to score their first touchdown and two-point conversion. SEV led 8-0 with 3:53 left in the first quarter.
The Broncos matched the Jaguars with a six-minute drive that spotlighted Tate Sander’s rushing ability. Quarterback Jordan Meyer ran in the ball for the Broncos only touchdown of the first half. B-K’s two-point conversion failed, and the Jaguars led 8-6 with just over ten minutes left in the half.
SEV scored twice before the Bronco defense gave the team another chance. Alex Bartz forced a fumble at mid-field with 2:30 left in the half. The Broncos were unable to get a drive going, and had to punt the ball. The Jaguars took only six plays to score another touchdown, and led 30-6 at the break.
B-K opened the second drive with a long drive that ate up almost seven minutes of clock. But the Broncos had to turn over the ball on downs at the SEV 14-yard line.
The Broncos trailed 42-6 when Meyer connected on a pass to Kaleb Carlson that he ran into the endzone on a 6-yard play. Eduin Gonzalez kicked the extra point.
The Jaguars scored once more to make the final score 50-13.
