After a close game against Roy last week, the Darts are back on track with a win against the Syracuse Titans 42-6. With great games for each of them, senior wide receiver David Spjut (#4), senior quarterback Chance Trujillo (#2), and senior running back Spencer Ferguson (#24) were the leaders of Fridays game. Spjut (#4) had a phenomenal game with 2 touchdowns, and 6 receptions for 252 yards receiving. Trujillo (#2) had an awesome passing game with 9/12 completed passes for 324 yards and 3 touchdowns. Trujillo (#2) also had a solid game on the ground with 3 carries for a total of 14 yards and 1 touchdown. Ferguson (#24) had a great game with 24 carries for 156 yards rushing and 1 touchdown as well. Defensive wise senior Mason Kilgore (#3) had a great game leading in tackles with 7 total tackles on Syracuse. With their strong offensive front, and solid defense, Davis had a great game last night. On preparing for this game after a loss, Trujillo (#2) said:
"We had a lot more desire to play hard, we wanted to get our momentum back from that tough loss last week. So we prepared a little bit harder this week"
Beginning the game, Syracuse kicked off to Davis and at 10:22 Trujillo (#2) threw a 67-yard pass to Spjut (#4) for a TD. Then to end the first quarter with about two minutes left Spjut (#4) received another pass from Trujillo (#2) this one 84-yards for a touchdown. The quarter ends 14-0. With 7:25 left in the second quarter Trujillo made another great pass, this a 45-yard pass to senior Jake Maw (#22) for a touchdown. To finish off the half, with 27 seconds left Trujillo ran 3 yards for a touchdown putting the Darts up 28-0 going into the half.
A few minutes into the third quarter Ferguson (#24) had a 4-yard run into the endzone for a touchdown. Then sophomore Trevor Drake (#14) gets a 1-yard run TD for the Titans. To end the quarter senior running back Caden Blackner (#5) gets a 9-yard run touchdown for Davis. And with no score in the 4th quarter the Darts win 42-6.
With lots of long receiving touchdowns lately, David Spjut has been a key player on the Davis offense. When talking more about those longer plays Spjut (#4) says:
“It is a play call. We have definitely put in deeper passes where I’m supposed to go deep. Chance (#2) can just fling it, and we have been able to connect on it.”

With two games left in the season Davis has been going strong and is ready for these next two weeks. With more on what is coming, Spjut (#4) states,
“We just need to set a tone and let everyone know that we can take care of business”
Davis will faceoff next with the Weber Warriors, who also have a record of 6-1.
