Wildcats win big over JV Devils

For the Davis High junior varsity football team, Friday night’s game against Franklin was like coming to a complete stop immediately after having accelerated to 100 miles per hour.

The Blue Devils entered the contest on a five-game winning streak and fresh off of a shutout win in their Delta Valley Conference opener against Monterey Trail. All that momentum abruptly evaporated on Friday, however, as they turned the ball over four times and fell 41-0 to the Wildcats at Franklin-Cosumnes Oaks Community Stadium in Elk Grove.

Defensively, Franklin focused its efforts on stopping DHS standouts Nate Curtis and Bailey Yarrow, who have combined to score in nearly every way imaginable this season.

With the pair essentially neutralized, the Devils struggled to get much going, other than some solid runs by Cole Morse.

“They had watched enough film to know who our go-to guys are,” said DHS head coach Mike Satre.

The Blue Devil defense, which has been dominant at times, also struggled to keep up with the fast-paced rushing attack of the Wildcats.

“We battled and did well,” Satre said. “But we were no match (for their) ferocity.”

However, there could be a silver lining in the defeat for the locals.

Satre believes his team can learn from the “high-tempo, high-caliber” execution of the Wildcats, as well as its own mistakes, and in the process, become a better team.

“We still have a chance at a very good season,” Satre said. “(But) we’ve got to stay focused and practice well.”

Davis’ first opportunity to right the ship will come against Laguna Creek in their Homecoming game on Friday at 5 p.m..

“That’s a team we match up well against,” Satre said.
