Davis, PSJ run past unbeaten Holmes County

Published: Thursday, October 4, 2012 at 11:11 AM.

PSJ outgained Holmes County 236-62 in the first half. Davis carried the ball 12 times for 154 yards, and Dusty Richter added four rushes for 64 yards.

Conversely, Holmes County punted on five of six possessions in the first half, and the other drive resulted in an interception.

“We came out, and it was all about playing together,” Richter said. “Coaches tell us that practice during the week is like work, and Friday is pay day. Today we got paid.”

Davis and Richter stressed the importance of camaraderie on the Tiger Shark football team, and they have drawn strength from each other in recent weeks. Davis’ uncle died two days ago. Richter’s uncle committed suicide weeks ago, Richter said.

“We put Christ first and pray every day,” Davis said. “We go hard every day in practice. It paid off.”

The Blue Devils found some traction offensively in the second half, but the Tiger Sharks’ 28-point lead was too much to overcome.

HolmesCountygot on the scoreboard in the middle of the third quarter with Kodi Russ’ 1-yard touchdown run. That capped a seven-play, 63-yard drive, by far the Blue Devils’ most successful possession of the evening to that point.
