Blue Jays fly past Cardinals in home opener

Stanley – The Blue Jays found the end-zone early and often on Friday night, rolling past Nedrose 38-12 in Region 3 football action.

Senior quarterback Wyatt Hanson opened the scoring just four minutes into the first quarter, putting the Blue Jays up 7-0.

Nedrose would answer back early in the second quarter, cutting the lead to 7-6.

Wyatt Hanson would follow with three straight touchdowns to put the game out of reach.

Nedrose would add a late score to make it 38-12.
