Windmiller, Short combine for six scores as Mill Valley clinches postseason birth


By NICK SLOAN, NJSloan212@gmail.com

The Mill Valley Jaguars continued to build offensive balance in their 63-40 victory against the Washington Wildcats Friday night.

Continuing their habit of jumping all over the competition in the first half, the Jaguars controlled the game from the get go, clinching a postseason birth on "Senior Night."

And it was two of Mill Valley's most seniors who combined for six touchdowns in the first half to give the Jags a 42-6 advantage over the young Wildcats.

Quarterback Skyler Windmiller passed for three first half touchdowns, while senior running back Kendall Short found familiar territory - the end zone.

Short scored three touchdowns in the first half, continuing his recent emergence in the high-powered offensive attack following his injury in the first half of the season.

In the past three games, Short has scored eight touchdowns, bringing his season total to nine on the year.

Jaguars freshman Logan Koch added three scores in the second half for the Jaguars.

Meanwhile, Washington's offense found some success against the Jaguars' second and third teamers in the second half.

Sophomore quarterback Kalem Harrison passed for 401 yards and six touchdowns. Four of those touchdowns were delivered to wide receiver Lloyd Stanfield, who also finished with over 250 receiving yards.

Washington was able to pile up 34 points in the second half.

But the story remains Mill Valley's recent dominance. The Jaguars have won seven straight games following a season-opening loss to Manhattan - all of them blowouts in a Roman Empire-like fashion.

Mill Valley can win its district next week on the road against Lansing.
