FAIRFIELD — A mixed bag of mistakes and allowing more than 200 yards rushing cost the Armijo High football team in a 27-0 loss to Davis, Friday night at Brownlee Field.
The Blue Devils struck first with a five-yard run up the middle from Talek Deary.
Davis’ next score came off an Armijo turnover, after the Indians threw an interception on a failed punt attempt.
The Blue Devils’ Winfred Robinson scored in the second quarter on a 21-yard run while Deary ran a 31-yard touchdown up the middle in the third quarter for his second score of the game.
Davis’ option running attack allowed the two quarterbacks, Quinten Jones and Emilio Barba, to add 74 yards to their team’s run total, giving the Devils 220 yards on the ground.
Armijo had a hint of hope in its offense as quarterback D’Mario Johnson was 7 for 19 throwing the ball with 107 yards and only one interception.
The Indians’ leading rusher was Jacob Maher, who ran for 41 yards.
Along with Jefferie Brown and Johnson, Armijo rushed for less than 90 yards.
“We’re a good team, but we’re not good enough to turn the ball over and make so many penalties as we did,” said Indians coach Karl Finley of the Indians.
Armijo had close to 100 yards in penalties, which Finley said, “killed them, along with the early turnovers”.
This is the first time Armijo has been shut out in back-to-back games since being blanked three straight in 2010.
The Indians are 0-2 and look for their first win when they travel to Benicia, next Friday.
