The Jefferson City Jays came into Wednesday's game against Francis Howell Central riding a six-game winning streak, including a Willard Tournament title.

The Spartans knocked them down a peg.

"We got punched in the mouth in the first inning and we didn't know how to respond," Jays coach Brian Ash said after the Spartans scored four runs in the first inning and used the long ball to coast to a 13-3 win at Vivion Field.
