Helena 28, Chelsea 6: Helena junior Jordan Washington opened the 2022 high school football season in style Thursday night with a dazzling 86-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to spark the Huskies to a 28-6 win in the AHSAA’s 17th Kickoff Classic season opener at Cramton Bowl.

Washington, who rushed for more than 1,700 yards as a sophomore, finished the night with 123 yards rushing on 25 carries and scored two touchdowns. He gave Helena a 14-0 lead later in the first quarter with a 15-yard run to cap a four-play, 38-yard drive with 4:40 left in the quarter.

Huskies quarterback Dalton Lewellyn added a 9-yard scoring run in the second quarter and scrambled to find receiver Nathan Wade on a 9-yard touchdown pass late in the third quarter for Helena’s final score.

Chelsea used just four plays to cover 70 yards on a drive that started late in the third quarter and scored its only touchdown of the night early in the fourth period with Emerson Russell, who had 87 yards on 15 carries, spinning around left in on a dazzling 10-yard TD run.
