Big plays power JV Blue Devils on the gridiron

It was evident that touchdowns would not be a problem for the Davis High junior varsity football team on the first play from scrimmage Friday. After the opening kickoff, Blue Devil sophomore running back Cole Morse took the handoff, and burst through the Foothill defense. Fifty-one yards later, he was in the end zone.

That type of scoring strike was a common sight for DHS, as the Devils routed Foothill 46-0.

In the big road win that sent it to 2-0 on the season, Davis able to get all 55 players into the game, which pleased head coach Mike Satre.

“We got a chance to get everybody in,” Satre said after the game. “When you’ve got a 55-man roster, for everybody to get in the game is excellent. That was really good, for morale and otherwise.”

The Blue Devil ground game was terrific, ripping off several long runs. Morse added a 41-yarder, sophomore H-back Danny Medina found the end zone from 33 yards out and sophomore running back Mayber Perez blew past the defense for a 77-yard touchdown.

It was Perez’s TD that was particularly impressive, given that it was the first handoff of his high school career.

“Mayber never played football before,” Satre said. “A 50-plus-yard touchdown run isn’t bad for the first time he carried the ball.”

DHS ended up with 264 yards on the ground, with Morse contributing 94 yards and a couple of scores.

Starting quarterback Jack Beckman was taken out early in the game to rest, but his backups — sophomore Willie Hall and freshman John Lagattuta — had no trouble expanding the Devils’ lead. Lagattuta was especially effective at running the read option, scampering in for a 5-yard score.

Meanwhile, the Davis defense also was firing on all cylinders, forcing three turnovers. Cornerback Will Bodendorfer had two of them, both interceptions, including one that he ran back 13 yards. Lineman Tucker Fisk terrorized Foothill’s quarterback, racking up four sacks and several other tackles for losses.

The locals were especially stifling in the first half of the game, holding the Mustang offense to an incredible minus-45 yards before halftime.

Such an accomplishment will be very difficult to repeat this week (Friday, 5:15 p.m.) at Armijo, as Satre said the Indians present a much bigger challenge:

“(Next week’s game) will be much more physical and aggressive. They will be a stronger team, much more on par with what Yuba City was, so that’s what we’re bracing for.”
