ELK GROVE — In a muddy, trying afternoon of football Saturday, the Davis Junior Blue Devil teams split four contests at Cosumnes Oaks.

For a while it looked like thunder-and-lightning storms might cut the full schedule short, but the skies cleared enough to get a full complement of games in. Here’s a look at the Blue Devil action …

Midgets

Neither rain nor thunder stopped the Blue Devils from dominating their hosts, as Davis’ defense and offense had amazing plays in an 18-6 victory, the locals’ third of the season.

A 57-yard sprint on an interception return by Jack Hoal went with his two rushing touchdowns to give the Devils their margin of victory.

Hoal ran for 110 yards, with Kayden Hoal (12 yards) and Ethan Iacono (seven) adding to the ground game. A long pass reception by Luke Maffly helped with field position.

Defensive highlights added more excitement as interceptions and tackles seemed to be the special of the day for Davis.

Zack Thornburgh had a pick with a 50-yard return, Will Smith had an interception and Jack Hoal snagged one another — in addition to his TD theft just before halftime. Smith also flew over the Wolfpack line to successfully block a pass.

Kayden Hoal, Smith and Chris Carr each had five tackles as the Blue Devils dominated the CO offense. Joe Morrison, Eric Balderama and Iacono had four stops each and Neil Welch added a key tackle.

“The team’s performance was exemplary (Saturday),” said local coach Josh Maffly. “However, we won’t let our guard down and will continue to work on our game.”

Pee Wees

It was water off a Devil’s back as inclement weather had no effect on Davis in a 36-6 win over Cosumnes Oaks.

The local offense scored on its first possession and took a 26-0 lead before the skies opened up and held both offenses in check.

Ben Busano paced the Blue Devils with 190 yards of total offense and three touchdowns.

Also leading the offense was quarterback Luke Carrell, who was efficient in the passing game, completing seven of his first eight passes. Carrell finished the game 9-for-15 for 144 yards, two TDs and no interceptions. Carrell also rushed for a third score.

Even though the rain was persistent, five Davis receivers — Busano, Keaton Massey, Bryce Schutte, Cameron Nelson and Elijah Hackett — caught passes.

On the other side of the ball, the Devil defense forced six fumbles.

Keiffer Jones led the way with four tackles, while other defensive contributions came from Santiago Gonzalez, Chris Nejara, Jamie MacNear, Adam Perry, Adam Hasson, Ethan Rosendale, Tony Williams and Nelson.

“I am very excited about how far our team has come in the past few months,” said Davis coach Scott Carrell. “Our defense has been rock-solid all year and our offense is really starting to click. I am excited to see what happens during the rest of the year. ”

Junior Pee Wees

Although first-quarter dark clouds foreshadowed the game’s outcome, the Blue Devils fought bravely and were able to get on the scoreboard in a 34-6 loss to Cosumnes Oaks.

The Wolfpack’s fast-paced offense led to a quick first-half deficit before Davis began to fight back.

In the loss, Jude Vaughn led the Devils with 93 yards — and scored the locals’ lone TD in the third period — while Ethan Cavanaugh and Trajan Clark also got carries.

The Blue Devil defense made its mark when Clark intercepted a pass — and returned it 32 yards — and on a fumble recovery by Cavanaugh.

In all, Davis had more than 30 tackles in the game, with Baron Rosario posting a career-high eight tackles. A.J. Hasson added five stops, Clark and Vaughn came in with four apiece and Adam Turner and Cavanaugh each had three. Matias Turner added a tackle.

Avangeline Turner — the only female player on the team — excelled in her first game, making multiple tackles, including one to prevent a touchdown.

“All in all, our team is growing in experience,” said Devil coach Paul Hasson. “I’m very proud of how the defense played (Saturday). The scoreboard did not reflect the way we played.”

Junior Midgets

In a game that nearly didn’t happen because of the thunder and lightning earlier in the day, the Blue Devils played well, but two late scores sent Cosumnes Oaks to a 12-0 win.

The Wolfpack went up 6-0 in the fourth quarter and clinched the game moments later with an interception return for a touchdown.

“I thought overall we played a much-improved game in all areas,” said Davis coach Craig Barksdale. “This team has a great attitude, and they love to play the game, so as a coach I could not ask for more.”

Kevin Coleman gave the fans something to cheer about, as he ran a kickoff back for what looked to be a TD. Unfortunately, the run was called back due to a Devil penalty. Lucas Griffiths also ran the ball well for the locals, his power running style proving effective given the inclement weather.

Griffiths contributed defensively as well, as did Eli Mitchell and defensive end Kel Williams. Overall, the defense made several key plays to keep Davis tied with CO for three quarters.

Notes: On Saturday, the Blue Devils return home to play Cordova at Brown Stadium. The action will open with a Junior Pee Wees outing (10 a.m.), followed by a Pee Wees game (noon), the Junior Midgets contest (2 p.m.) and the Midgets (4 p.m.). Thanks to contributors Linda Delbar, Rosie Segura and Matt Banuelos. … The Davis Junior Blue Devils page is published each Tuesday in The Enterprise through the end of the season.
