The Davis High junior varsity football team wasted no time in beginning its dismantling of Foothill High on Friday. On the Blue Devils’ first play from scrimmage, running back Cole Morse sprinted through the Mustang defense for a 51-yard touchdown, opening the floodgates for a 46-0 victory.
The onslaught continued on Foothill’s first play from scrimmage as DHS cornerback Will Bodendorfer intercepted a pass and ran it in for a TD. In two plays, Davis was up 14-0.
After forcing a quick three-and-out from the Mustangs, Devil linebacker Greg Rohnstock burst through the line and blocked a punt, with Jake Hammond recovering the ball for Davis. Moments later, Morse ran for another score, this one from 1 yard out.
Morse found the end zone one more time before the end of the first half, slicing through the defense for a 41-yarder scamper.
After that, it was smooth sailing for the Blue Devils, allowing Morse and quarterback Jack Beckman to take an early rest. Their backups — QB Willie Hall and freshman running back John Lagattuta — both played well, with Lagattuta rushing for a touchdown.
In the fourth quarter, DHS finished the game the way it started — with a long TD run. Sophomore Mayber Perez took the first hand-off of his Devil career 77 yards, flying through a defeated Foothill team to put the cherry on the top of the Davis victory.
