Freshman Kaylee Messina completed 13 of 23 passes, threw for three touchdowns and ran for a fourth as Flag Football stifled visiting Jones, 27-0. DP's defense shut down the Tigers twice inside their own 15 yard line in the first quarter and the offense came alive in the second. Senior center Malia Harrison caught a short pass, hit the corner and raced down the sideline 40 yards for a touchdown and Jade Cheek caught the extra point pass to give DP (2-0) a 7-0 lead. Later in the quarter, freshman Tiffany Tolbert stepped in front of a Jones pass to set up a five-yard touchdown run by Kaylee Messina for a 14-0 lead at the half. In the third quarter, Jade Cheek caught a sideline pass from Messina and knifed her way through the defense for a 55-yard touchdown to push the lead to 20-0 heading into the fourth. Malia Harrison thwarted another Jones drive, returning an interception across midfield which set the table for Kyara McClendon's 35-yard touchdown reception from Messina for the final score of the night. Malia Harrison finished with five receptions, a touchdown and an interception; Jade Cheek hauled in three catches with a touchdown and a fourth quarter interception; and Diamond Alford led the defense with four flag pulls. DP gets a breather over the break before returning to the field April 2nd at Gateway.
