The football season just started for the Blue Devils Varsity Team and they’ve already fought their enemy from the year before and ended their losing streak.
After a whole year without a win the Davis Blue Devils came back stronger than anyone would have thought possible. After some starting problems against Grant, the Devils showed their horns!
On Friday, August 24, the Blue Devils destroyed Cordova with 69-20 in their home stadium and ended their losing streak with a big bang. They showed their qualities and kept working hard. The Devils didn’t stop getting better and practicing harder than before to receive their guests from Woodland. The Devils proved their commitment and a score of 42-6 and got a positive record of 2-1 for the first time for over a year. The devils win the following week as well, this time with a score of 51-13 against Pioneer.
Friday, September 14, was a very hard game for the Devils. They played a tough game against Elk Grove, but were ultimately defeated with a score of only 14-21. The score showed that the Devils fought hard and are hungry to come back stronger than ever before against the best team in the league. We had a by-week, or like Coach Smyte would say, “A get-better-week” in which our players would attempt to increase their focus and their drive to win in order to play against the number one team in the league. On September 28, the Devils played against undefeated Sheldon, and after a hard fight, Davis sadly lost with a score of 21-28. The Devils would have won this game with a bit more focus and discipline. The defeat will hopefully inspire them to work harder than ever before to be the best team in the league.
