Devils roll to another JV football win

By
From page B2 | October 30, 2013 |

The Davis High junior varsity football team went into halftime of its first outing of the season eight weeks ago down 12-0. In the 7 1/2 games they’ve played since then, the Blue Devils have scored 265 points. Thirty-three of those points came Friday, as DHS topped Laguna Creek Cardinals, 33-6, to improve to 8-0 on the season.

The game got off to a rocky start for the Devils, as their first play from scrimmage was an interception. But the defense prevented the Cardinals from capitalizing on the turnover by forcing a three-and-out.

Davis rode that momentum to the offensive end with standout running back Cole Morse blasting through the LCHS defense for a 51-yard touchdown on his first handoff of the day.

The Cardinals responded with a touchdown on their next drive to even the score, but that was all they would get for the rest of the game. When it was over, the local defense had forced 12 incompletions and three turnovers.

One of those turnovers was an interception made by linebacker Tommy McTygue, who caught a tipped ball to set up a 39-yard touchdown run by Blue Devil quarterback Jack Beckman on a third-and-20 play.

“That (play) is something that we’ve worked on,” DHS head coach Mike Satre said after the game. “We just called timeout, and said, ‘Here’s what we’re going to run.’ ”

Beckman added another TD run in the second half, this time from 19 yards out. He also hooked up with big freshman tight end Tucker Fisk for a 12-yard scoring toss, their fifth such connection in five games.

Beckman finished with 44 yards rushing and 60 yards passing before being relieved by freshman John Lagattuta, who took advantage of the late playing time. He hit Fisk for a 29-yard touchdown pass on a perfect throw, which was his only attempt of the game.

Morse, a sophomore, spearheaded the running game as usual, running for a season-high 169 yards and scoring the early touchdown. Freshman Ishmael Perez added a bruising 29 yards in relief of Morse.

On the other side of the ball, the Devils were constantly in the Laguna Creek backfield and had the Cardinal QB looking over his shoulder all night. Fisk had a fumble recovery, after the LCHS center mistakenly placed the ball on the ground again, having already snapped it. Cornerback Max Banuelos added his first interception of the season for Davis.

“(The defense) really had that shark mentality that they’ve started to show,” said local defensive coordinator Chuck Temple. “Even when we were up big, we kept pressing it, and we were able to get some guys in (who don’t usually play much).”

Next on the schedule is a Friday game against 4-4 Grant.

“That game will be another hard, physical dogfight,” Satre said . “They just have that swagger and that reputation and they’re a team that walks in anywhere and expects to win.”
