SACRAMENTO Ñ New week, same result.

For the second week in a row, the Davis High junior varsity football team trounced its opponent, beating the Sacramento High Dragons, 35-6, on Saturday.

Running back Kevin Sorensen Ñ doing his best Toby Gerhart impression Ñ rushed for 103 yards on 15 tries, an average of 6.9 yards per carry. He twice scored on runs of one yard and from 16 out.

Playing in an idyllic, neighborhood setting in the heart of Sacramento, Davis fell behind early when an intercepted pass was returned 62 yards for a score.

After that, at the second-oldest high school west of the Mississippi River, it was all Blue Devils.

Because the Dragons lined up in a defense with no linebackers for the entire first half, Sorensen heard his number called often, picking up 99 of his yards early.

The DHS defense also held its own, recording three sacks and forcing two fumbles, one of which was recovered by J.C. Roecki-Navazio.

In the third quarter, Willie Hawkins picked off an errant pass and returned it 20 yards for a touchdown.

Later in the quarter, quarterback Hayden Duer connected with wideout Adam King on a jump ball in the end zone for a 32-yard score to put the game out of reach. Duer also rushed for a 6-yard touchdown.

Kicker Thomas May was automatic on extra points, nailing all five of them. May also had one of his kickoffs soar out of the end zone for a touchback.

While coach Mike Satre was happy with his teamÕs performance, he also saw some room for improvement.

ÒOverall, that was a solid B-plus or A-minus,Ó he said. ÒWe just kinda started slow. We spent the first quarter figuring it out, then we got it together.Ó

Satre was especially pleased with SorensenÕs game, though he figured the varsity team doesnÕt Òhave a need for him, specifically right now. But he certainly has the talent to get up there.Ó

Satre said his group of talented athletes are looking to add a few more numbers to their win column.

Notes: The Davis freshman team had a bye week. … King said after the game, Òtwo down, eight to go. I love football so much!Ó … Satre noted that his team Ògot behind at the beginning … and we found out the players didnÕt like that very much.Ó … Friday the junior varsity plays Wood Ñ a team against which last yearÕs squad won its only game. The DHS freshman went 5-5 in 2009.
