WEST BRANCH Cade Jones said West Branch was on a mission to make amends for last year's loss to Lisbon.

The senior all-state running did much of the work by himself last night, gaining 211 yards on just 15 carries and scoring 3 touchdowns as the Bears opened the high school football season with a 28-7 win over the Lions.

His third TD was a 79 yard scamper around the right end, weaving and bobbing through seven would be Lisbon defenders.

Bears Coach Butch Pedersen was not at all content.

"It was a typical first game," Pedersen said. "Too many penalties and mistakes. The score is a bit misleading. But it's always nice to get a victory in week one."

Bo Bower scored the other TD for the Bears, on a 14-yard second quarter run.

Senior Josh St. John led a staunch West Branch defensive effort with 11 tackles and a pair of fumble recoveries. The Bears limited the Lions to just 148 total yards.

"We played an aggressive team," Jones said. "We need to improve every week. I am happy with our effort, but not satisfied."
