There’s another piece of hardware coming home to the Davis High School trophy case.

Friday night, the Davis Wolves football team wrapped up yet another undefeated district championship with a convincing 44-18 victory over Coalgate.

The win moved the No. 4 Wolves to 7-2 overall for the season, and 6-0 in district play.

DHS’ march towards a seventh state title begins at 7:30 p.m. Friday night at Wolf Field as Hobart will visit for the first round of the playoffs.

A victory for the Wolves would see them take on either Luther or Hennessy in the second round.

Davis totaled 431 yards of offense, as the Wolves raced out to an early 14-6 lead in the first quarter.

Before the end of the first half, DHS took control with 17 unanswered points, as the lead grew to 31-6.

The second half began in strong fashion for the Wolves as they scored 13 points, keeping Coalgate at bay.

CHS managed to score 12 points in the fourth quarter, but the game was out of reach by then.

Senior quarterback Briston Summers made an immediate impact for the Wolves, finishing with 19 carries for 156 yards and three touchdowns, to go with a 3-for-6 passing performance for 37 yards.

Blake Neal ran the ball eight times for 74 yards and a pair of touchdowns, with Logan Taliaferro adding 44 yards on eight carries with one touchdown.


Kingston 31 Marietta 14

Marietta’s dream of hosting in the first round of the playoffs was dashed Friday night by the Kingston Redskins.

KHS handed the Indians a 17-point defeat, meaning they finished as the No. 4 seed out of district 2A-4.

The Indians playoff journey will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday night on the road against the Lindsay Leopards.

The winner will play Alva or Christian Heritage in the second round.

Kingston took an early 7-0 lead in the first quarter thanks to a 57-yard touchdown pass. 

Marietta struck back with a seven-yard TD pass from Kyler Erwin to TaGunn Matthews, making it 7-6 after the failed two-point conversion.

Before the end of the first half, the Redskins managed to score again, making it 14-6 at halftime.

With just over four minutes to go in the third, Kingston added a field goal to make it 17-6.

Two big plays took the wind out of Marietta’s sails in the fourth.

First, Kingston made it 24-6 with a 55-yard touchdown pass.

Then, the Redskins got an interception and returned it back 40-yards for a touchdown, making it 31-6.

Matthews managed to get a consolation score for the Indians late in the fourth with a 17-yard rushing touchdown, making it 31-14 after Erwin ran in the two-point conversion. 

Marietta dropped to 6-4 overall.
