Friendship Christian broke open a scoreless game in the second quarter and quickly blew the game open in a 44-8 crushing of visiting Carroll-Oakland in middle school football Tuesday at Pirtle Field.
Ben Jamison, returning from a broken arm suffered in preseason, broke the shutout early in the second when he took his first career carry 40 yards to the house and followed with the two-point conversion.
Josh Folkerts' interception of Vince Floyd set up Jamison's 22-yard touchdown catch from Mike Jones Jr., who later ran 75 yards for the next score and returned a punt 38 yards for the TD which followed for a 28-0 halftime lead. Jones ran in a two-point keeper.
Chad Holcombe forced a fumble which was recovered by Jacob Bostian to set up Jones' 75-yard score.
Bostian ran 54 yards to the end zone early in the second half and Seth Filson ran in the two-point conversion. Filson followed with a 2-yard scoring run. Jamison caught Adam Husseini's two-point pass to cap the Commanders' scoring.
Mitch Toberg broke the shutout with a 56-yard run midway through the fourth quarter. Toberg also caught the two-point pass.
Jones ran three times for 98 yards and went 1-for-2 passing for the 22-yard score.
Luke Smith led Friendship's defense with nine tackles, including four behind the line.
Friendship will play host to Middle Tennessee Christian on Thursday before traveling to Coopertown next Tuesday.
