Devils pull away late for JV football win

The Davis High junior varsity football team continued its high-scoring season on Friday, as the 7-0 Blue Devils topped Franklin, 42-20. Although the 22-point margin of victory would suggest a blowout, the game was tightly contested until DHS pulled away at the end.

The win was a team effort on Davis’ end, as every unit worked well. Facing what might have been their toughest opponent of the year, that was important for the Devils.

“I think really the whole team played well,” said DHS assistant coach Chuck Temple. “Every guy on the team had a (big game).”

The Blue Devils got a lot of excellent production from their lines, both offensive and defensive, which was essential in such a physical game.

“The key (to that victory), more than anything, was the offensive line and the defensive line,” Davis head coach Mike Satre said after the game. “No matter what they tried to take away, we turned around and dominated something else.”

The offensive line played especially well when it came to run blocking, as the Devils racked up a total of 294 yards on the ground. Sophomore running back Cole Morse had the lion’s share of those yards, as he finished the game with 137. He also added two rushing touchdowns, and a third TD on a return of a safety punt at the end of the game.

H-backs Danny Medina and Jake Hammond both added scoring dashes of their own, a 73-yarder for Medina and a 31-yarder for Hammond. Freshman running back Ishmael Perez was the thunder to Medina and Hammond’s lightning, earning his 35 yards on a couple of bruising runs.

DHS quarterback Jack Beckman was efficient, completing half of his passes, one of which was a scoring toss to freshman tight end Tucker Fisk. Beckman also added a 22-yard scramble to put the team in scoring position, and he had a couple of successful two-point conversions.

The Blue Devil defense was its usual self, stifling a frustrated Franklin offense. Fisk was a dominating presence on the defensive line, as he contributed a sack and multiple tackles for a loss, while Davis defensive tackle Reese Peterson was a stopgap in the middle, preventing the Franklin running backs from finding room to operate.

In addition, sophomore Tommy McTygue and freshman Ben Easton combined for a Devil safety in the fourth quarter, which sealed the game and set up Morse’s touchdown return.

DHS cornerback Will Bodendorfer apparently had added a return touchdown of his own off an interception, but the play was called back when the locals were flagged for unnecessary roughness.

“They’re a hybrid offense,” Temple explained. “We schemed some stuff, and our guys stayed within their responsibilities, and it showed.”

This week, the Blue Devils take on 2-5 Laguna Creek. While it’s a quick turnaround for the players, especially after a big win like Friday’s, the coaches also must refocus.

“We’ve been so focused on (the Franklin game) that we haven’t really prepared for Laguna,” Satre said following Friday’s victory. “So this week we’ll just have to do that … I think the last three teams we’ve played will help us be ready.”
