The undefeated Davis High junior varsity football team coasted to yet another blowout victory on Friday, topping Woodland, 28-0.
The margin of victory actually was the Blue Devils’ smallest since the first game of the season. DHS is now 5-0.
Playing at Brown Stadium, the Devil offense got things started early, putting up 21 points in the first quarter. Fourteen of those points came on runs by sophomore running back Cole Morse, who added another touchdown scamper later in the game to give him nine on the season. Morse finished the game with 142 yards rushing, a season high.
With the strong running game, local quarterback Jack Beckman wasn’t asked to do much. Still, he played a mistake-free game, completing 3-of-6 passes for 64 yards and a TD.
Davis’ defense stifled its opponent once again, notching its second shutout of the season. Many different players contributed to the effort, paced by cornerback Will Bodendorfer, who grabbed two more interceptions to bring his season total to six.
The pass rush overpowered Woodland, with sophomore Tommy McTygue and freshmen Tucker Fisk and Nick Amoah all getting at least one sack. The Blue Devil defense held Woodland’s run game to minus-29 yards for the entire game, one of the best efforts the run defense has had all year.
The Blue Devils also showed improvement in the one area in which they had been struggling — penalties. They committed just five on Friday, down from 15 the previous week.
