The Kennett Indians Junior Varsity football teamwas in action on Monday evening, as they played host to the New Madrid County Central Eagles.

It was a defensive battle early on, as neither team put up a score in the first quarter. On a New Madrid drive early in the second quarter, the Indian defense stepped up and made a huge stop on fourth down, inside their own ten yardline.

The Eagles defense would make a stand too, and force Kennett to punt. On New Madrid's first play from scrimmage following the punt, they would run it 46 yards into the end zone, and put the Eagles up 8-0.

After the Indians were picked off, it looked like New Madrid may have another score in them before the half, however a fumble recovered by Indians Jake Tefft would end their threat.

In the third quarter, New Madrid would tack on another touchdown to make the game 14-0.

Aside from a few big runs by Carlos Turner, and Joe Pittman, and a nice kickoff return by Cody Lewis, the Indians just couldn't get any momentum going on offense.

The Eagles would tack on two more touchdowns, and win the game 26-0.

Next Monday, the JV Indians will travel to Paragould to take on Green County Tech.
