DANVILLE — Through the first two quarters Friday night, things weren’t looking so rosy for the Danville football team.
The Blue Devils led Coshocton, 12-6, but didn’t look good in doing so, picking up several penalties, only getting 10 plays on offense and allowing two big plays to the Redskins.
But, some halftime adjustments by the coaches and a bit of an attitude adjustment by the players got the Blue Devils rolling again and they went on to beat the Redskins, 33-6.
“They (Coshocton) had a great game plan in the first half. We had just 10 plays. We were able to score twice in those 10 plays, but we had no rhythm,” said Danville coach Ed Honabarger. “But, our first drive of the second half, we went 14 plays and established some rhythm offensively. ... We needed to establish some rhythm and get things going. We did.”
The Redskins (1-4) had controlled the ball offensively in the first half, and used a couple of big plays to keep the Devils’ offense off the field. A fake punt went for 35 yards and a halfback pass went for another 28 yards and a touchdown for the Redskins.
