DHS JV footballers stay perfect

When Monterey Trail scored on a 28-yard touchdown run in the first period on Friday, then went for two, it marked the first time that the Davis High junior varsity team had faced a deficit in 17 quarters of football.

Although that touchdown had followed a rough offensive series by the Blue Devils to start the game, DHS head coach Mike Satre wasn’t too concerned about his team.

“No, (I wasn’t worried) because we recognized that (we were playing) as if we were asleep,” Satre told The Enterprise after the Devils took a 35-14 win at Brown Stadium. “It bothered us, but we weren’t worried.”

If the locals had been sleeping through that first possession, they were definitely awake for their second. Running back Cole Morse took a handoff and flew down the sideline, outrunning the defenders for a 73-yard score.

After that, it was smooth sailing for Davis as it cruised to a victory to improve to 6-0.

The Blue Devil offense was firing on all cylinders in the contest, as both the ground game and the aerial attack were working. Morse finished with 154 yards rushing and two touchdowns, giving him 11 on the season.

Sophomore running back Gabe McKinney ran the ball well when Morse was on the bench, adding 40 yards of his own.

When DHS went to the air, quarterback Jack Beckman was efficient, completing five passes, three of which went for touchdowns. He ended with 100 passing yards.

One of those scoring tosses went to sophomore tight end Tommy McTygue, who evaded two defenders on his way into the end zone, and the other two were caught by freshman tight end Tucker Fisk, whose size proved too much for the Monterey Trail defense to handle.

“Tucker Fisk played well on offense,” Satre said. “He was our go-to-guy in the air a couple of times.”

Fisk and McTygue also led the Devil defense, which played another strong game as a unit. Both players recorded sacks for the second straight week, with Fisk once taking down the quarterback with just one arm. The Davis defense forced two fumbles and recovered one to continue its streak of causing a turnover in every game so far this year.

“(The defense) played physical,” said assistant coach Chuck Temple. “A couple turnovers here, some stops … those made the difference.”

DHS cornerbacks Mason Chupka and Will Bodendorfer locked down the Mustang receivers, allowing only four completions on 11 pass attempts.

Next up for the locals is another Delta Valley Conference outing as 3-1-1 Franklin visits Brown Stadium on Friday. The Wildcats have traditionally been one of the Blue Devils’ most challenging competitors.

“(The game) is going to be very tough, very physical,” Satre said. “It’s going to be a knock-down, drag-out fight.”
