Jimmies finish spring with rain soaked 2022 spring game
The Jimmies defense got a 24-8 win over the offense.
After 14 practices, the University of Jamestown played a rain soaked spring game. In the annual tradition the defense wearing black took down the offense wearing white 28-8 on Friday, April 29. The game had a different scoring system than normal games where the teams would get six points for a touchdown per usual but if the defense forced the offense to punt or turn it over on downs they got two points.
The weather played a tremendous role in the game with the slickness of the ball leading to the offense dropping multiple receptions and the defense dropping a handful of interceptions. One of the biggest plays was in the second half when the Jimmies running back Carlos Julian fumbled the ball and it was picked up and ran in for a scoop and score to make it 24-0 in favor of the defense. Late in the game, the Jimmies offense led by Jamestown native quarterback Ty Monson went on a touchdown drive where he ran it in from 15 yards out to make it 24-6. The offense stayed on the field and Monson cut it left and ran it in to make it 24-8.
“It’s pouring down rain, the guys had a fun time running around slipping and sliding,” Jimmies head coach Brian Mistro said. “It wasn’t exactly what we wanted it to be but obviously the boys had fun and their families are out here having a good time. I was proud. We had so many live reps in the spring that this was more of a culmination of letting the boys showcase their stuff and what they did all spring in front of their families. So, it was fun.”
After the official end of the spring, Mistro said that he will be hitting the recruiting trail over the next few weeks as he works to bring in future Jimmies.
