Yellow Jackets run record to 4-0

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

WILLIAMSBURG — The Williamsburg Yellow Jackets continue to roll along by defeating Leslie County with ease, 42-13.

Williamsburg led by as much as 36 points before the Eagles scored a touchdown late in the game.

“This was a good win over a good team,” Williamsburg coach Jerry Herron said. “We were able to move the ball early and score and took control of the game on them.

“We are very pleased with the kids’ effort,” he added. “We played really well in the first quarter, but didn’t play so good in the second quarter. But we did get back on track in the second half and put the game away.”

The win also turned out to be Williamsburg’s 398th win.

“We’re two away from 400 and we’re hoping we can get two more this year, so we can have a big celebration,” Herron said. “We’ve got a tough game next week against Oneida, Tenn.”

Dalton Sizemore completed 18-of-34 pass attempts for 263 yards and two touchdowns and he also rushed for 93 yards and one score. Jefferson Patrick ran for 41 yards and two TDs.

Corey Shelton led the Yellow Jackets in receiving with five catches for 116 yards and two touchdowns while Logan Hamblin had five catches for 50 yards. Skyler Griffith finished the game with four receptions and 56 yards and he also had two interceptions.
