FREDERICKTOWN — It was an old-fashioned slugfest Friday at Fredericktown.
Both Fredericktown and Danville came out swinging with their high-powered offenses, but in the end it was the Blue Devils that got in the knockout punch to win, 29-20.
“We outscored ’em, we made defensive stops when we had to. I guess that’s all that matters,” said Danville coach Ed Honabarger.
The teams took turns smacking each other early. Danville (2-0) was able to take advantage of a Fredericktown fumble and went 57 yards on just five plays to grab the early lead. Quarterback Ridge Durbin hooked up with receiver Austin Morehouse on two big plays, including a 10-yard scoring strike that put the Devils on the board first.
Fredericktown (0-2) responded with a ground-pounding 68-yard drive to take the lead. Tyler Ruhl, Austin Hathaway, Brenden Reed and Jacob Leiendecker all took turns pounding their way through the Danville defense before Hathaway finished off the 11-play drive with a 5-yard touchdown run.
