Blue Devils Edge Clarksburg, 10-8

The Clarksburg Coyotes traveled to Colesville Friday night to take on the 2-1 Springbrook Blue Devils. The Blue Devils were riding high after last week’s 32-25 overtime win at Walter Johnson, while the Coyotes were hoping to get back to winning after last week’s lopsided loss to Quince Orchard.

After a scoreless opening quarter where both teams were feeling each other out. The Blue Devils got the scoring started in the second quarter as senior quarterback Trevon Ruffin connected with junior Dominic Best on a four-yard touchdown pass.

The Coyotes would answer back with a score later the second quarter as senior tailback Elijah Maith ran into the endzone, the point after would be no good. Clarksburg had cut the lead to one point at halftime. “Elijah Maith is a guy that shows up and bangs for us every week. He is one of the bright spots,” said Coyotes Head Coach Bob Plante.

Clarksburg would come out of the half fired up. After the opening kickoff, the Coyotes defense would get the ball right back on the first play from scrimmage. Clarksburg’s Kory Fleming would recover a fumble, and the Coyotes would take over at the Springbrook 32 yard line.

“I have been after Kory all year,” said Plante. “He is a tough kid, physical kid, a big kid at tight end. I asked him to show up and play up to his ability — I thought he had a great game. He made some great runs and did a great job on defense. I was excited about his effort tonight.”
