For most of the Davis High football team’s Friday game against Woodcreek High the teams were within seven points of each other. However, during the fourth quarter the Timberwolves pulled ahead with a touchdown that Blue Devils could not recover from, costing them the game, which they lost 31-21.
Even though the score might not have been perfect, the players on the team did give the home crowd something to cheer for and rally behind.
“We moved the ball really well,” center and senior Davis Eisenman said.
While both teams had a couple of fumbles and incomplete passes throughout the game, the Blue Devils had a solid game.
In the second quarter, senior Ismael Perez scored the first touchdown of the game. Shortly afterward, the Timberwolves answered back with a touchdown of their own.
A couple plays later, Perez made another touchdown, traveling 65 yards to do so. The Timberwolves retaliated once again, and at halftime, both teams were tied up at 14-14.
Quickly in the fourth quarter, the Timberwolves scored once again, intercepting the ball, and with about a minute left in the game, they let the clock run out.
Although the Blue Devils ended up losing, the game was still an improvement from last Friday’s loss of 33-0 to Whitney.
While assistant coach Josh Reese thought that the team needed to work out some of the details, he also seemed very happy with how the team played.
“We have all the potential we could ask for,” Reese said.
