The Blue Jays sealed a share of the District 4-1A title as St. Edmund rolled to a 49-12 win over Hamilton Christian.

“When they scored, we answered,” Blue Jay head coach Andy Hargroder said. “I am proud of way of the guys responded in a strong way.”
After the Blue Jay defense held on the Warriors’ opening possession, the St. Edmund offense fumbled the ball back three plays later.
