(June 23, 2015) — Stephenville split two 7-on-7 football games in Aledo Tuesday evening, cruising past Burleson 34-12 before falling to host Aledo 20-6.

In the victory over Burleson, sophomore quarterback Easton Jones fired five touchdown passes including the last two to Aaron Burrows who also caught a pair of 1-point conversions. Jace McLeroy, Jon Clark Giddings and Mason Yoes hauled in the other two strikes, while a Zoey Kendall interception highlighted the strong defensive effort.



Stephenville couldn’t get on track offensively against Aledo, with Jones and McLeroy hooking up for the only Yellow Jacket score. Aledo avenged a loss to Stephenville two weeks earlier at SHS.

The Yellow Jackets are done with what amounts to the regular season in 7-on-7 and compete in the state tournament at Veterans Park and Athletic Complex in College Station Thursday, July 9, and Friday, July 10.

Stephenville reached state on its first attempt at the McGregor State Qualifier Tournament.
