JV Blue Devils rein in Mustangs

The Davis High junior varsity football team opened up its Delta Valley Conference season on a high note on Friday night, beating Monterey Trail 13-2 in Elk Grove.

The Blue Devils got a shutout from their defense — its second in three games — as well as a pair of touchdowns from Nate Curtis and Cole Morse en route to their fifth straight win, which elevated them to an overall record of 5-1.

“I think it’s huge (to be 5-1),” DHS head coach Mike Satre said. “Obviously for the program, but also for the psyche of the team.”

Curtis scored on a pass from Quentin Jones, and Morse ripped off a scoring run to give the Blue Devil defense a lead to work with. The defense responded by forcing one turnover and keeping the Mustangs in check down the stretch.

“After the first drive, where they chewed up a phenomenal amount of time, our guys (sharpened up),” Satre said. “You’ve got to give some special kudos to the defense.”

This was the third game this season where the Blue Devil defense held its opponent scoreless. On Friday, the Mustangs’ only score came at the expense of the DHS offense. The Devils surrendered a safety immediately after an officiating debacle. The Blue Devils appeared to fumble on the previous play. However, the fumble occurred after an inadvertent whistle, and the Blue Devils retained possession.

DHS now looks ahead to Friday’s game with Franklin. The Wildcats are 3-3 (0-1 in DVC play).

“They’ll be a tough, hard-nosed team,” Satre said. “Every year they’re a challenge.”
