JV football gets a winning record

One victory away from a winning season, the Davis High junior varsity football team displayed a balance of defensive ferocity and physicality on Friday in a 26-12 pummeling of Monterey Trail. The Blue Devils used a big-play offense to compensate for a plethora of penalties and, with the victory, finished with a 5-4-1 record.

\n

“We won kind of ugly (13 penalties for 110 yards), but the game was never in doubt. We were in control (and) every guy got in the game,” said DHS head coach Mike Satre.

\n

Kevin Sorensen, Willie Hawkins, and Adam King ran wild against the Mustang defense, racking up a combined 177 rushing yards for the Devils. On the flip side, Davis defensive lineman Bray Harwood terrorized the Monterey Trail offense with a hard-hitting performance that included four tackles, one sack and one forced fumble.

\n

The Blue Devils scored on the opening kickoff, when Hawkins slipped and sped through arm tackles and dashed up the heart of the Mustang coverage for a 78-yard score, putting his team up 7-0.

\n

On the ensuing possession, the DHS defense committed one of its few mistakes — other than the penalties — of the contest. Mustang receiver Veondre Lewis sprinted behind the Devil secondary, and caught a 34-yard rainbow of a pass, before being twisted down at the DHS 5-yard line.

\n

The Blue Devil defense, however, made up for its error on the next play, stripping the ball out of a MTHS running back\’s hands and pouncing on it.

\n

Following the recovery, the Davis offense used big plays to march down the field before losing a fumble of its own. Before the miscue, Hawkins turned the corner on a 16-yard run, Sorensen smashed his way to midfield on a 23-yard carry and King ran an end-around play for 26 yards down the right sideline. But DHS lost the ball on the Mustang 25.

\n

But King returned the favor with an interception, and ran it all the way back for an apparent pick six. However, another yellow flag, this time for holding, negated the return and forced the Devil offense to set up shop on the 27-yard line.

\n

Several plays later, Hawkins took a pitch and wrestled his way into the end zone to put Davis ahead, 14-0.

\n

Penalties reared their ugly heads again as three offside calls put MTHS QB Ernesto Balagtas in position for a two-yard sneak into the end zone just seconds before halftime.

\n

Leading 14-6 In the third quarter, the Devil defense stopped the Mustangs short on fourth down and DHS quarterback Hayden Duer took advantage. Duer lobbed a ball to Adam Inouye, who snagged it for a 26-yard touchdown that made it 20-6.

\n

The Mustangs weren\’t dead yet, however as Balagtas scored another TD on a 42-yard run, to close the gap to 20-12 in the fourth.

\n

A 63-yard touchdown run by Sorensen on the next possession not only put the game out of reach, but put the Blue Devil running back over the 1,000-yard rushing mark for the season.
