After an extremely successful and exciting day one at the state 7-on-7 tournament, the Stephenville Yellow Jackets were sent home in their first game in the championship bracket Friday by long time state powerhouse Argyle in a 39-12 contest.
The Yellow Jackets began with the ball and had trouble getting anything going offensively as they eventually turned the ball over.
Argyle took advantage and scored the first points of the game and then stopped the Stephenville offense again on their ensuing possession.
By the time Stephenville managed to put any points on the board, Argyle had run out to a 13-0 lead.
The first touchdown scored by Stephenville came from an Easton Jones hook up with Kade Averhoff, but the Yellow Jackets entered halftime down 19-6 with Argyle starting the second half with the ball.
It didn’t take long for Argyle to extend their lead as they once again scored two unanswered scores, this time in the second half, before Stephenville could find the end zone.
Stephenville quarterback did hit receiver Kyle Lindsey late for a touchdown, but it wouldn’t be enough as the Yellow Jackets 7-on-7 season came to a close.
Stephenville got to where they were Friday by having a very successful first day at the tournament.
The Yellow Jackets were placed in Pool O with La Grange, El Campo and Grace Community and rallied to win two out of three games to finish in first place in pool play.
