Falkville scores early and often in defeating Danville 56-0 to open the season

The Falkville Blue Devils jumped on Danville early and never let up their 56-0 win over the Hawks on Thursday night.

Falkville extended their lead to 21-0 when Angulo connected with Andrew Jones for a touchdown.

Angulo scored his second touchdown of the game in the second quarter to give the Blue Devils a 28-0 lead.

Angulo finished the game with 59 yards rushing, 38 yards passing, two touchdowns on offense, and a 66-yard interception return for a touchdown.

The Blue Devils scored 14 points in each of the final two quarters to make the final score 56-0.

Three players scored for Falkville in the second half. Jones added a second touchdown reception and Holmes had a rushing touchdown. Jordan Greenfield added two rushing touchdowns.

“We got a couple of breaks early on and capitalized on them,” said Falkville coach Tyler Mitchell. “We had a solid game plan and stuck to it. I am proud of our guys and their great job tonight.”

Falkville (2-0) will open Class 2A, Region 7 play next week as they host Whitesburg Christian (1-1) on Friday night. Danville (1-1) will open Class 3A, Region 8 play on the road at Colbert Heights (1-1).
