Jackson Kollock era Opens with Jaguar Rout
Sophomore transfer Jackson Kollock helped Laguna celebrate the 66th Homecoming game by throwing five touchdown passes and running for a score as the Breakers easily defeated Segerstrom (1-6) 41-22 last Friday night at Guyer Field.
The Breakers opened the contest with Jeremy Kantor returning the kick-off 19 yards, followed by Jackson Kollock finding another Jackson – Jackson Rodriguez deep in the Jag backfield for a 59-yard scoring play.
The Jags turned the ball over on downs after six plays, but the Breakers fumbled their next possession on the Segerstrom 4-yard line.
After a short Segerstrom punt, Kollock completed two passes and ran the ball in for the second score. Marcus Heins ended the Jag’s next possession, blocking their punt attempt, then recovering the loose ball at the Segerstrom 11-yard line. In one play, Kollock made an athletic toss as he was being forced out of bounds and found Aidan Mulkay in the endzone for the third score in the initial period.
The Breakers scored on their first two possessions of the second quarter but ran the clock out on their third possession to end the first half up 34-0.
Laguna freely substituted in the second half.
