Senior defensive tackle Sonny Hazard knocks the ball loose in the 2nd half of the Jesuit-St. Paul’s game on Friday, Sept. 13.

The Jesuit Blue Jay football team showed heart in the fourth quarter of Friday’s game at St. Paul’s Hunter Field, but the Jays’ comeback would end a field goal short as they fell to the Wolves, 19-16.

The Blue Jays (1-1) made things interesting by scoring two long passing touchdowns in a 5-minute span to pull within three. Trailing 19-16, the Jays had a chance to tie or win the game, having the ball at midfield with 30 seconds to play. A fumble recovered by St. Paul’s (2-0) sealed the game for the home team and gave Jesuit its first loss of the 2019 season. 

The Jays host Helen Cox on Friday, Sept. 20, for Jesuit’s home opener. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m.
