The Wolves overwhelmed Marietta with a 40-point first half performance, leading to a blowout 40-7 victory, giving the Wolves their third victory of the season. 

“That quarterback (Carlos Whibbey) is really good, he is a really good ball carrier,” Davis coach Greg Parker said. “It started with the preparation during the week, they kept grinding and kept working. They have stayed with it, this is a testament to them, their parents and the community. Im proud of them.”

After strugglingly offensively through most of the season, the Wolves came out the gates fast. 

Starting from the opening drive, the Wolves ran their gameplay to perfection. 

It took just eight plays for the Wolves to find the end zone, when senior fullback Jared Brown punched it in from eight yards out to take the 7-0 lead.

Following an Indians punt, the Wolves once again marched downfield and scored on just four plays, when junior quarterback Cole Martin completed a 30 yard touchdown pass to senior Devon Gregg, to make it 14-0.

On the Indians next two possessions, the Wolves defense forced consecutive turnovers, including an interception in their own territory.  

Gregg need just one play following the interception to run 34 yards for a touchdown to give Davis a 20-0 lead at the end of the first quarter.

When the second quarter began, it started were the first quarter finished, with Davis scoring. 

Cooper Webb extended the Wolves lead with a 16-yard touchdown run to make it 27-0. 

Marietta then got on the board thanks to Carlos Whibbey leading the offense down the field in three plays before a 48 yard touchdown run, which cut the deficit to 27-7.

Unfortunately, that would be it for the Indians offense the rest of the game as it pertained to scoring. 

Davis responded with a four play drive resulting a touchdown from Jared Brown. 

Defensively the Wolves brought the pressure against the Indians and forced their third turnover of the game with an interception later in the quarter.

Both teams did not score in the second half, with the Wolves running the clock out on offense, and suffocating defensively. The Wolves forced three second half turnovers to seal the game.

Indians head coach Sam Powers praised the Wolves defense in their ability to slow down the Indians offense.

“They play hard and are a very disciplined football team and well coached,” Powers said. “I mean they are Davis. They are physical, they play hard and they are well coached.”

Davis (3-6, 2-4) will finish its season at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Wolf Field against Tishomingo, while Marietta (2-6, 0-5) will be on the road at Coalgate.
