Mistakes plague JV Devils at Grant

By From page B3 | October 28, 2012

The Davis High junior varsity football team fell to Grant, 35-0, on Friday night, but the tally is misleading, according to local head coach Mike Satre.

DHS turned the ball over six times — including a fumble inside the Pacer 5-yard line — had a touchdown called back on a penalty and came up short on a fake punt after a Blue Devil receiver dropped what should have been an easy catch.

Take way some of those gaffes, and it would have been a very different outing.

“We were in this game unlike the one against Franklin (that DHS lost 41-0),” Satre said. “The bounces didn’t go our way.”

Despite the mistakes, Satre thought his team played with intensity on both sides of the ball. The Devil defense stopped the high-octane Pacers several times, but wore down as the game progressed because the turnovers prevented it from getting a breather.

On the other side of the ball, the offensive line consistently overpowered the larger Grant defensive line and opened up holes for the DHS running backs. Quarterback Quentin Jones also had a solid performance, but dropped balls hindered the passing game overall.

“We had a passing game that had them bamboozled, but we couldn’t hold on to the ball,” Satre said.
