JV Horses run over Bulldogs 30-6

Christmas came early for the JV football Warhorses last Thursday evening in Somerset. Devine capitalized on three Bulldog turnovers to cruise to a 30-6 victory that improves their record to 2-0 on the young season.
Robert Ramirez recovered a Somerset fumble at the Devine 45. That recovery led to a 14-yard touchdown run by halfback Hayden DuBose. DuBose added the two-point conversion as well to put the Horses up 8-0 early in the game.
On Somerset’s next offensive possession, Outlaw Walker jumped on a loose ball to give Devine the ball back at their own 32-yard line. On the first play of the second quarter, DuBose took the pitch from quarterback Cody Trammal to scamper 32-yards into the end zone. Trammal hit receiver Mason Martinez for the two-point conversion to put Devine up 16-0.
DuBose, who finished with four touchdowns, added an interception midway through the second quarter. He picked off a deep pass at the Warhorse 35 and returned it all the way to the Bulldog 42. Good runs by Sage Cruz and Gus Puente set up DuBose’s third touchdown from 1-yard out. Devine led 22-0 going into halftime.
A long kickoff return by Devine’s Sage Cruz to open the second half put the Horses in great field position at the Somerset 42-yard line. DuBose put the finishing touches on a great ballgame by breaking several tackles in the process to score the Horses last touchdown. Puente added the two-point run giving Devine a 30-0 lead.
Somerset scored late in the game on a 6-yard run to make the final score Devine 30 and Somerset 6.
