Delval football team was on the road this weekend to contend against Stevenson college who is ranked 14th in division III football and was 7-0 overall coming into this game. They knew it was not going to be an easy game but I don’t think any of us expected the outcome to be the way it was. Delval has averaged 39.3 points per game this year so for them to get shut out in this game was a real shocker. But in football, you always have to expect the unexpected.
Delval ended up losing the game 19-0, and it started off bad from the beginning. Stevenson marched the ball all the way down to the Aggies 2 yard line where they ended up turning the ball over on downs. The Aggies got the ball but things turned south when junior running back Devauntay Ellis had the ball stripped away by Stevenson. Stevenson scored a touchdown on that drive but missed the extra point making it 6-0.
The very next drive Aggies quarterback Dashawn Darden threw an interception to Stevensons Jimmy Laurer, where he returned it for a 38 yard touchdown making it 12-0. Stevenson later scored a touchdown in the fourth quarter putting a nail in the game and adding to their historic season.
Stevenson has never went 8-0 and for the Aggies this is their second loss. They are going to have to win their last three games if they want a shot at the playoffs. But more of a concern they are going to need to come up with a better offense of gameplan against their next opponent if they want any chance of winning. They could only muster out 114 total yards in Saturdays game 62 coming on the ground and 52 in the air.
It was a rough weekend for the Aggies football team but this season is not over and they have to continue to look ahead. As we all know anything is possible in the game of football, and the game has to be fought to the final whistle, and the season must be fought until the final bout!
