Devils trounce Morrisville-Eaton 49 to 0
Recap by Bob Blair - cal-mum.com sports
Coach Chris Connolly and his staff worked extra hard this week to get the Blue Devils ready for Saturday's game against Morrisville-Eaton Central. It was to be the misfortune of the visiting Warriors, who happened to be the opponent, playing the angry Devils, the week after a tough lost to neighboring Little Falls. The Blue Devils made a statement in this game by coming out and scoring early, and scoring often. It was obvious that the loss to Little Falls caught the attention of everyone on this team. There was much determination and hustle shown during the game. It will take some team putting forth a great effort to defeat the Blue Devils come playoff time.
The Devils' Steve Benson returned the opening kickoff of the game to
the Devils' 34-yard line. Mixing the run and pass, the Devils quickly
moved down field. A face mask penalty on a pass play gave Dolgeville
a first down at the ME 30-yard line. QB Brian Radley then found tight-end
Gary Foster open in the end zone and he quickly rifled a pass him to
for the initial score of the game. Matt Randall made the extra point,
and just 1:40 into the game, Dolgeville was in front 7-0.
On the first play of the 2nd quarter QB Brian Radley hit Brett Radley
with a screen pass to the right side of the field. Brett Radley took
the pass and cut left across the field for a 39-yard touchdown. The
extra point was no good and the Devils were rolling, 26 to 0.
The Devils' offense looked sharp, with good blocking and hard running. The defensive intensity in the first half was extremely good. Dolgeville's swarming defense completely dominated the Warriors, shutting down both the rushing and passing attacks.
The 42 point led allowed Coach Connolly to give his reserves plenty of playing time in the 2nd half. The teams took turns running their offenses during much of the 2nd half. The final score of the game came on a 20-yard scamper by Dolgeville's Matt Wright, on the last play of the 3rd quarter. Matt Randall's extra-point conversion closed out the scoring, capping a Dolgeville 49 to 0 victory over Morrisville-Eaton.
The Devils travel to New York Mills this Saturday for a 2:00 p.m. Class
D-East contest. The Marauders enter the game sporting a 1-3 record.
The Devils will have to continue to play well with eleven teams in Section
III Class D sporting a 3-1 record or better. Go Devils!
