Playing in the Sacramento Youth Tackle Football League, the Davis Junior Blue Devil White teams went 2-1 against stiff competition against San Juan.

A look at what happened …

Pee Wees White

The Davis defense recorded its second straight shutout, while the offense rolled in a 40-0 victory over San Juan on Saturday.

The Blue Devils got off to a quick start, opening the game with a 48-yard kickoff return by Adam Hasson, then went on to score on six of their first eight possessions. Other highlights included a spectacular 42-yard run by Mitch Banuelos and a 30-yard reception by Clark Chen.

In all, five different locals — Elijah Hackett, Adam Hasson, Luke Carrell, William Whouie and Santiago Gonzalez — scored touchdowns.

The Devils also had a nice day passing the ball, completing six-of-13 passes to receivers Chen, Finn Thompsen and Hackett.

On the other side of the ball Davis’ defense was dominant throughout the contest, forcing three turnovers and holding the Spartans to zero first downs.

Hasson grabbed his team-leading third interception of the season and Kieffer Jones recovered a fumble, while 13 Blue Devils recorded tackles. Top tacklers included Cameron Nelson, David Gallow, Josiah Roa, Keaton Massey, Jack Chavira and Zack Purnell, and Gonzalez led the way with four stops, including a quarterback sack.

“Our boys have really come together over the past several weeks,” said Davis coach Scott Carrell. “I am particularly proud of our offensive line. Kevin (Halozen), Josiah (Roa), David (Gallow) Chris (Najera) and Kieffer (Jones) did an outstanding job.”

The locals improved their road record to 4-1 in league and they are 4-3 overall on the season. A playoff spot is on the line Saturday when the Blue Devils face Foothill in their final regular season game on Saturday.

Midgets White

A nail-biting match-up between the San Juan Spartans and the Blue Devils ended with the locals scoring late to clinch a 6-0 win.

In the rematch from a game Davis won earlier this year, San Juan was much improved (after being assembled just before the beginning of the season), leading to a scoreless deadlock for most of the contest.

Despite getting inside the 10-yard line on two occasions, the Blue Devils were unable to score or convert a touchdown until the final moment of the game when running back Jacob Avila tore through the Spartan line for a 41-yard score. Defensive lineman Caleb Kang then made the final stop as time expired, keeping Davis’ playoff hopes alive.

In the final quarter, as San Juan was driving the field, the local defense kept them in the game. Tackles behind the line of scrimmage by Jakob Lee, Cosmo Kasapligil and linebacker Jesse Keenan paved the way for the Devil offense to make the game-winning drive.

Other notable efforts were made by defensive end Mathew DeSimone, safety Noah Murray and cornerback Tyler Mundy, while Davis wide receiver Ricky Hernandez managed three catches for 40 yards.

Next Saturday’s final regular-season game, against Foothill, could be crucial for the Blue Devils’ playoff hopes.

Notes: San Juan topped the Davis Junior Midgets, 27-6. No recap was submitted.
