Cody Wins 3A Championship Defeating Rival Jackson
Jackson and Cody have played some super-competitive games over the past few years and for the 2nd straight year, they met in the 3A championship game. Most observers felt that another close game was on the horizon but Cody's defense made this a one-sided game. Cody had 4 interceptions on the day and returned 3 of those for touchdowns. Remy Broussard had an 89-yard pick-six in the 3rd quarter and Matt Nelson followed that up with a 59-yard pick-six. Nelson wasn't finished as he picked off a ball at the goal line and his next stop was the end zone, 100 yards away.
Cody ended up winning this game 41-24 with 281 yards of offense. By contrast, Jackson had 581 yards of offense but obviously, those turnovers were back-breakers.
Cody went 11-0 this season and has lost just 3 games over the course of the last 3 years. Jackson wrapped up the season at 9-3 and qualified for the 3A final four for the last four years.
