THE SKINNY

A lot of weight is on the shoulders of Harper running back Devin Davis who ran for 135 yards and scored four touchdowns in the Cardinal’s season opener last week against Urban Prep-Englewood. Davis once again shined as he followed up last week’s performance with three touchdowns in Friday’s victory over Hyde Park at Stagg Stadium.

TURNING POINT

Leading 14-0 on a 39-yard run by Taylor Shaw, Davis scored his second touchdown of the half on a 10-yard run with 5:37 remaining in the second quarter. Just seconds later a down pour and lightning caused the game to be delayed 1 hour, 30 minutes.

THE STAR

Davis rushed 10 times for 92 yards and scored two touchdowns.He also caught on a 52-yard touchdown pass from quarterback David Harvey.

BY THE NUMBERS

The Cardinal defense limited the Indians to 72 yards of total offense with linebackers Dwayne McGhee and Davis recording nine tackles each. Nose tackle Avalon Gross contributed with two sacks and eight tackles.

QUOTABLE

“Coach told us that if we practice hard and prepare right that the games would be fun and that’s the way it was. It was fun and good to win.” — Davis
