MILTON-FREEWATER — On a night when Mac-Hi honored 19 football seniors — 16 players and three cheerleaders — it was a sophomore running back that took center stage during the Pioneers’ Greater Oregon League contest with La Grande on Friday night at Shockman Field.
Jeffrey Jones carried 39 times for 212 yards and four touchdowns to lead Mac-Hi to a 42-8 Homecoming victory over the winless Tigers.
“Jeffrey Jones is getting better every week,” Mac-Hi coach Tim Hutchison said. “The O-line blocked their hearts out.”
The Pioneers improved to 1-1 in league and 2-4 overall while La Grande fell to 0-2 and 0-7.
