Despite loss Friday, JV Devils finish 6-4

The Davis High junior varsity football team finished a roller coaster of a season with one last drop on Friday night — a 42-18 loss to Elk Grove.

The Blue Devils gave up a series of breakaway runs and struggled to move the ball consistently in the defeat, which came at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium. The Thundering Herd took a 21-0 lead in the second quarter before DHS was finally able to get on the board via a 9-yard touchdown run by Cole Morse.

The Devils had a chance to score again just before halftime, but Morse and quarterback Quentin Jones came up just short of the goal line on a pair of rushing plays. The clock expired before DHS could attempt another play or a field goal that might have resulted in the score being closer than 28-6 at intermission.

“Scoring a touchdown at the end of that half would have made a big difference,” DHS assistant coach Chuck Temple told The Enterprise.

In the second half, Jones threw scoring passes of 19 and 14 yards to Nate Curtis and Quentin McCray, respectively. McCray led all receivers with three catches for 52 yards including an 18-yard grab of a Curtis pass on a trick play.

But The Herd added two more TDs and an interception that essentially iced the game.

Despite the loss, the 2012 Blue Devils have a lot to be happy about. Their season was all over the map as they went from huge wins to blowout losses and back again, with only one close game all year: a 15-14 loss to Yuba City in the opener. But in the end, DHS finished with a 6-4 overall record, a major improvement over the previous season’s mark.

“This program, we’re trying to turn (it) around and make it stronger and make it be something,” Temple said. “They were (at the meetings and practices) all the time. Just great guys, great guys all the way around.

“I see (this season) as something we’ll build on.”
