Coming off a tough, four-point homecoming loss to Kendrick, the Blue Devils (4-3, 3-2 Region 5-AA) used a prolific offensive attack, a defense that got stops on third and fourth down when needed and a high-powered special teams effort.
The game started off on the right note for the Blue Devils, who got a 56-yard scoring drive that culminated with an eight-yard touchdown run by Cameron Porter. Spencer (2-4, 2-2) responded with an 42-yard touchdown pass from Tarvaraska Davis to Richard Jones, but it failed on a two-point conversion to leave the score 7-6.
Porter scored another touchdown on a 16-yard run on the next Bremen drive and then he ran the ball in for a two-point conversion. After a failed fourth down attempt by Spencer, Blue Devil fullback Voltaire Driver ran in a one-yard touchdown. Spencer retaliated with an eight-yard touchdown pass from Davis to Jones to bring the score to 22-14 after a two-point conversion.
Bremen quarterback Trent McClure recorded a passing touchdown of his own on the ensuing Bremen drive, connecting with Sean Stassie for 15 yards just before the half.
To open the second half, Spencer scored on a screen pass from Davis to Damarkus Robins, who ran it 51 yards for the score. With the score at 28-20, Driver ran in another touchdown for six yards.
Josh Johnson intercepted two of Spencer’s passes on its next two drives, with Driver scoring a touchdown on both turnovers on runs of two and 21 yards, respectively, bringing the score to 48-20. Davis passed for one more touchdown of 59 yards to raise the score up to 48-26. The Blue Devils tacked seven more onto the board with an eight-yard run from Porter to seal Spencer’s fate.
Bremen’s offense rushed for 538 yards, with Driver going 176 yards and four touchdowns on 24 carries, while McClure added 175 yards on 12 carries and Porter tacked on 117 yards and three touchdowns on 14 carries. Brody Doss had three kickoff returns for 96 yards.
