PELL CITY – The Blue Devils arrived in the Victory Christian Lions' Den feeling good about their upcoming game. And for good reason. The Devils shut Victory Christian down, 29-0.
Falkville improved its overall record to 4-3 and 3-2 in Region 5 play.
Victory started with the ball, but couldn't get things going, turning the ball over on downs. Falkville's Dustin Jump helped drive down the field, eventually scoring on a 3-yard run. The extra point was good and put the score at 7-0 at the end of the first quarter.
Falkville's defense proved to be too much for the Lions and they were unable to move the ball. Falkville's Dustin Reeves forced a fumble that was picked up by Brandon Clark at the Victory 42.
The Devils' offense struck again, this time with quarterback Aaron Lee charging 10 yards to score. He kicked his own point after to move Falkville up 14-0.
Falkville's go-to man in the ground game was Dustin Jump, who put up 123 rushing yards before injury forced him out midway through the third quarter.
"I hope I can recover and get fired up for next week, I'm really looking forward to it," Jump said.
The Devils widened the gap yet again with another run by Lee, this time a 2-yarder. The two-point conversion pass made it 22-0.
Falkville senior Steven Lindsey took care of most of Falkville's passing yards, gaining 93 of the 100 total yards, including a 32-yard pass for a touchdown after Victory fumbled once more on their own 32 that brought the score to 29-0.
"We got the job done tonight, but we're already looking forward to a big game next week against Vincent," Lindsey said.
The Devils held on to their lead and kept the Lions quiet for the remainder of the ballgame.
Falkville will host the Vincent Yellow Jackets Friday at 7 p.m.
