The Jacksonville University Dolphins easily defeated the Warner University Royals in a Saturday afternoon match at D. B. Milne Field. It was an absolutely dominating performance, as the Dolphins totaled 468 yards to Warner's 76 in the first half.
The hapless visitors were trailing 48-0 by half-time, when Dolphins coach Kerwin Bell decided to take his foot off the gas pedal.
Second and third string players were swapped in during the final half of play, allowing Warner University to score their first ever touchdown in a football game. The young program, playing in only its fourth game, had scored a combined total of 3 points coming into today's match-up.
A fumble by JU gave the Royals good field position in the 3rd quarter and they made it count, narrowing the game to 55-7. The underdog Royals followed that score with an impressive 69-yard touchdown by Vernis Jenkins, and a later field goal to amass 16 points on the road.
The Dolphins tied their own record-setting performance from last week, in which they recorded 69 points against Morehead State.
JU will host Butler next week for an important in-conference game. For the first time in history, this season, the Pioneer Football League regular season champion will receive an automatic bid to the FCS playoffs.
