Mike Jones threw for two touchdowns and ran for another in Friendship Christian’s 48-6 middle school football victory over visiting Providence Christian at Pirtle Field.

Jones ran for a 35-yard touchdown and passed 32 yards to Tarver Hayslip and 52 to Ben Jamison. Jones also flipped a two-point pass to Jamison, who ran for another, and ran for a PAT for a 24-0 first-quarter lead.

Wesley Elliot returned an interception 40 yards for a touchdown and Jamison ran 50 for a score sandwiched around a Providence 80-yard scoring run for a 36-6 halftime lead.

Chad Holcombe’s 10-yard run and Dalton Karstens’ 50-yard interception return in the final seconds closed out the scoring in the fourth quarter as the Commanders climbed to 5-0.

Jones hit all six of his passes for 138 yards and ran for 38 more on two carries.
