Jackson suffers first loss 40-7
The early-season honeymoon ended with a thud in Jackson's return home Friday.
Rockwood Summit scored on its first possession to build steam early, then added touchdowns in each quarter to win 40-7. The win came a week after Jackson's season-opening defeat of Sikeston on the road.
Jackson (1-1) threatened inside the Summit 20-yard line twice in the first half before finally scoring. The Indians ended their first trip into the red zone on a fourth-down interception and later lost possession on a fourth-down incomplete pass.
Vince Hulet scored on runs of 14 and 17 yards in the first quarter for Summit (1-1), and Cory Manson scored on a 35-yard run in the second quarter before the Indians got on the board on quarterback Tyler Profilet's first carry of the game, a 14-yard run up the middle.
Summit built momentum quickly after halftime when Eddie Cowan returned a blocked put for a touchdown with 8:03 left in the third quarter. Summit scored twice more on short plays.
