BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – The Chaney Cowboys scored three consecutive touchdowns in the first and second half Friday night to defeat Boardman, 40-14.

Chaney was led by quarterback Matt Jones who had three rushing touchdowns on the night.

The Spartans closed the gap to six points late in the third quarter before a kickoff return sparked the Cowboys’ second trio of touchdowns and put the game out of reach.

Chaney (2-0) will visit Cardinal Mooney in week three. Boardman (1-1) will host Jackson.

Early in the first quarter, the Spartans struck first with Tomas Andujar connecting with Isaiah Torres for a touchdown pass to give Boardman a 7-0 lead.

But the Cowboys would rip off three consecutive scores before the half, led by quarterback Matt Jones. Jones had two rushing touchdowns, accompanied by a Jason Amill-Austin 41-yard touchdown run to give the Cowboys a 20-7 lead at halftime.

An Andujar touchdown run near the end of the third quarter got the Spartans right back into the game, closing the gap to 20-14, but it would be short-lived.

The Cowboys would return the ensuing kickoff to the house, with DJ Waller’s score extending the lead just seconds later to 28-14.

From there, Chaney would quickly take over the game with another Jones rushing touchdown and a LeBron Donlow 50-yard interception return for a score to expand the lead to 40-14.

Boardman came into week two riding high after a come-from-behind victory over Cardinal Mooney in week one, while Chaney was fresh off of a victory over Poland to open the season.
