Garnet Valley’s Football Season Comes to a Close Against Saint Joe’s Prep

By: Jeremy Park

The Garnet Valley Jaguars’ incredible season finally came to an end last Saturday against Saint Joe’s Prep. It was a battle between the homegrown and the handpicked, and it finally took a private school to take down the Jags.

Both defenses made multiple stops to start the game, but Prep eventually got going to jump out to a 21-0 lead. The score was 35-7 at the half, and the game ended in a final score of 49-13.

Sophomore Prep QB Samaj Jones had an amazing game, throwing for 3 touchdowns and running for 4. 

The Jags had some sparks on the night, including an absolute Moss over a Prep defender by Ndozi Okolo for a 39-yard touchdown and a 29-yard touchdown run by sophomore Trevor Saccomandi, showing that Garnet Valley is in good hands for the future.
