Davis County was dealt their first loss of the season Friday night, falling to Williamsburg in each team’s district opener 54-14.
On a wet, soggy night that featured constant rainfall, Williamsburg relied heavily on its running game. The Raiders, ranked #2 in Class 2A, racked up nearly 300 yards on the ground.
Williamsburg won the coin toss and elected to receive. On their first play from scrimmage, senior running back Riley Holt ran 63 yards for the opening score.
Trailing 6-0, the Mustangs were forced to punt on their initial drive. Mustang junior Caedyn Glosser picked off a pass in the end zone to keep the Raiders from extending their lead.
Davis County punted on the ensuing possession and Williamsburg added to their advantage. A 26-yard pass put the Raiders in the red zone and Holt scored on a one-yard plunge to make it a 13-0 game.
Davis County was able to move the ball on their next series but it ended with a fourth down fumble at the Williamsburg 23. On the very next play, sophomore running back Carson Huedepohl took off on a 77-yard touchdown jaunt to give the Raiders a 20-0 lead.
Two more touchdown runs by Holt gave Williamsburg a 34-0 lead. Davis County got on the board before halftime courtesy of a 66-yard touchdown run by junior quarterback Carson Maeder. The Mustangs’ other score was a 73-yard connection from Maeder to Glosser in the third quarter.
Williamsburg improved to 3-0 with the win. Davis County drops to 2-1, 0-1 in district play.
This upcoming Friday, the Mustangs will play their first road game of the season as they take on district foe Central Lee (0-3, 0-1).
