Familiar script has Devil JV squad at 8-0

By From page B2 | October 27, 2013

The Davis High junior varsity football team continued its unbeaten run through the schedule when it topped Laguna Creek, 33-6, in a road game on Friday.

The game did not get off to a good start for the Blue Devils (8-0), as their first drive ended in an interception. It was DHS’ third fruitless opening drive in as many weeks but, just like it had in each of the past two game, Davis quickly bounced back on its next drive.

On Friday, it was sophomore Cole Morse doing the damage as he took his first handoff of the game 57 yards for a touchdown.

The Cardinals came back with an 18-yard touchdown pass, but after that, the Devil defense was a brick wall.

In the local defensive gem, Tommy McTygue came up with his first interception of the season, Tucker Fisk had a fumble recovery and the pass defense held Laguna Creek to just four completions on 16 attempts.

The DHS offense also performed well, especially when it came to running the ball. Morse, who’s had a great season already, turned even more heads with his 169 yards rushing. He also scored a touchdown.

Blue Devil quarterback Jack Beckman also made it happen with his legs, as he ran for 44 yards and two scores. Beckman was a dual threat for Davis, finding Fisk for a scoring toss and totaling 79 passing yards.

Backup QB John Lagattuta also threw a touchdown pass, a 29-yard strike to Fisk, who has established himself as the go-to target for the Blue Devils in the red zone.
