Mitchell, Jaguars stifle Bears, 44-28


Little Cypress-Mauriceville had no answer for Central quarterback Robert Mitchell in a critical District 20-4A game for both teams at Thomas Stadium Saturday night.

Mitchell completed 15-of-25 passes for 281 yards and two touchdowns. He rushed for 85 yards and three touchdowns and iced the game for the Jaguars with an interception in the end zone with 1:30 left as the Jaguars downed the Battlin’ Bears 44-28.

LC-M (4-5, 3-3) and Central (3-6, 3-3) are tied for the fourth and final playoff berth out of 20-4A with the Jaguars holding the head-to-head edge.

The Bears can still make the postseason if it defeats second-place Vidor (8-1, 5-1) at home Friday and Central loses at first-place Nederland (8-1, 6-0).

The Jaguars finished with 399 yards of total offense while the Bears put up 372 of their own.

LC-M quarterback Caleb Harley completed 18-of-29 passes for 193 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions as he passed the 1,000-yard mark for the season.

Senior tailback Alex Sezer had another splendid game, rushing for 149 yards and two touchdowns on 32 carries.

Dalton Doyle had eight catches for 94 yards for the Bears while Casey Viator hauled in six receptions for 88 yards.

Landon Malbrough snared six catches for 80 yards. Nicalus Rhone had two grabs for 79 yards, including a 75-yarder for a touchdown that broke the Bears’ backs with 9:29 remaining.

Central defensive back James Locke picked off Harley at the Jaguar 20 and returned it all the way to the Bear 48 and after a Bear personal foul, the Jaguars had the ball at the Bear 33 with 5:23 left.

Four plays later, Mitchell found the end zone again, darting 10 yards around the right end for the score. He then found running back Trent Samuels with a two-point conversion pass to give the Jaguars a 44-28 edge with 3:24 left.

The Jaguars struck quick to go up 36-28 when Mitchell found a streaking  Rhone down the right sideline for a 75-yard touchdown bomb with 9:29 remaining. The Bears kept themselves in it though, blocking the extra-point attempt.
