Jones caught six passes for 105 yards with two touchdowns. His first touchdown catch was a 16-yard grab off a perfectly executed fade pattern to the corner of the end zone. The second was a 40-yard catch and run on a corner route. Jones kept his feet just in bounds before crossing the goal line.
“I am just glad he can run,” first-year Harrison coach Marty Galbraith said.
On the other side, the Hoyas’ defense held Campbell to 200 yards of total offense.
“We got a little better than last week, but Campbell just did a good job,” Galbraith said. “We made enough turnovers to make it an interesting game. Our kids fought back and we are happy to have the win. We will take a win any way we can get it.”
The defense saw a lot of action with the offense committing four turnovers. The unit was backed up against the end zone several times, but found a way to stand firm.
“We put them in a bad position a couple times, but they rose to the occasion and stopped them,” Galbraith said. “That is what they are supposed to do. You can’t say enough about them. It could have gone the other way with how many times we turned the ball over.”
Galbraith said he was happy to escape with the win and he is now focused on next week with his team now that the Hoyas are in the thick of the region schedule.
“If we can play consistent, we have a chance to be a good team, but we did not do that (Friday),” he said. “But we played good enough to win tonight and we played really good in the last 6 minutes of the fourth quarter.”
However, before the 6-minute mark, Harrison continued to pass the ball with a two-touchdown lead.
Sophomore quarterback Lorenzo Nunez threw an interception off a tipped pass with 6:58 remaining. Campbell quarterback Ricky James connected with wide receiver Josh Miller for a 10-yard touchdown to cut the Hoyas’ lead to 21-14 with 5:32 remaining.
The furthest the ball traveled was from Nunez’s hands to the running back on a handoff for the rest of the game.
Nunez scored the opening points of the game on a 6-yard scamper to the end zone. Campbell’s Darius Harris scored on a 21-yard run in the second quarter.
