The Cardinals and Cavaliers were nearly identical in offensive output, gaining 342 and 328 total yards, respectively, but big plays were the breaking point.

Cannon Hall kept the ball on a 55-yard quarterback keeper to take a 7-0 lead on Davison’s first possession. Tied at 7-7 with just over two minutes remaining in the first frame, running back Tariq Reid fumbled on the Carman-Ainsworth one-yard line, allowing the Cavaliers to smell an upset for a mere moment before Austin Roland recovered the ball in the end zone, giving the Cardinals a lead that would never be relinquished.

On the play succeeding the kickoff, Gabe Ellis intercepted an errant Carman-Ainsworth pass and returned it to the end zone, making it 20-7. Davison took a 28-7 lead into halftime, following a 7-yard run by Hall and twopoint conversion by Reid.

The dominance continued in the second half for the Cardinals on the coattails of Reid, who reeled in a 27-yard touchdown reception from Hall and ripped off a 46-yard run for a score. A late Cavalier score and one-yard touchdown run from Davison wide receiver Lamar Hay would cement the 50-13 final.

Hall only completed two passes for 87 yards and a touchdown, but also ran for 73 yards with two scores. Reid was unstoppable with 125 yards on only nine carries with a touchdown. He also caught one pass for 27 yards. Hall’s other pass was caught by Hay for 60 yards. Hay was productive all around, chipping in 17 rushing yards, 5.5 tackles and three assists on defense, along with his fourth quarter touchdown.

The Cardinals were led on the defensive end by Ellis, who in addition to his interception return, also recorded 11.5 tackles and nine assists. Logan Pasco had 6.5 tackles, five assists and half of a sack. Likewise, Cal Stefanko had 6.5 tackles, seven assists and 1.5 sacks.

Davison, 3-0, is at Flint Friday to take on the newly-minted Flint Jaguars, 1-2.
