By Susan Larson

The Yellow Jackets pulled it out in overtime, defeating the  Stafford Indians 24 – 23 in the first varsity football game of the 2014 season.

“Stafford dominated in the first half,” said color commentator Bob Blackman on Fbedu educational access channel 18 on Cox Cable.  James Monroe came to life in the second half.  With less than a minute left in the fourth quarter, the Yellow Jackets scored, ending regulation play in a 17 – 17 tie.

The Yellow Jackets had possession first in overtime, and quickly scored.  They led 24 – 17.

Stafford scored during their first overtime possession, but failed to make a two-point conversion.  James Monroe won 24 – 23.

“This team kept fighting,” said color commentator Herman K about James Monroe.  “They are giving themselves a signature as a team that will fight.”

James Monroe’s next game is 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 5, at North Stafford High School, 839 Garrisonville Rd., Stafford.
