MADISON – Quarterback Shaun Wimberly Jr. passed for 263 yards and two long touchdown passes to lead visiting Jeffersonville to a 28-13 victory over Madison Friday night at Cub Field.
Wimberly competed 10-of-14 passes with one interception. The sophomore’s main target was Red Devil junior wide receiver D’Andre Rutherford, who had four receptions for 157 yards and a touchdown.
With the score tied at seven, Wimberly put Jeff (2-2, 2-1 Hoosier Hills Conference) up seven points by hitting senior running back Kam Fuller with a 47-yard touchdown toss with 11:41 left in the third quarter. It was Fuller’s second touchdown of the contest as he made a 6-yard scoring run in the second quarter.
The Cubs (1-3, 0-2) got within one at 14-13 with 8:50 left in the third, as Madison quarterback Jace Humes made a 39-yard TD run. But Cubs place-kicker Tristan Storie missed the extra-point kick, keeping the Red Devil lead at one.
One minute and 32 seconds later, Rutherford caught a 73-yard TD reception from Wimberly to increase Jeff’s lead to 21-13. Red Devil back Dylan Jolley-Little capped off the scoring with a 6-yard TD run with 43 seconds left in regulation.
Fuller ran the ball 15 times for 72 yards. Humes made 17 carries for 121 yards and was 5-of-8 passing for 36 yards and one interception.
Jeff will host Floyd Central (3-1, 2-0) at 7 p.m. next Friday. Madison will visit Jennings County (1-3, 0-2) at 7 p.m. next Friday.
