Football dominates Mainland to stay unbeaten
9/23/2017 9:11:00 AM

Senior running back Devodney Alford rushed for 146 yards and a touchdown, his third consecutive 100+ yard game, and the DP defense held Daytona Beach Mainland to just 52 yards rushing (164 total offense) in a 20-0 victory Friday night in the Spoone. DP (3-0) exorcised the demons of the past two meetings with Mainland that resulted in a pair of 21-point defeats by scoring two touchdowns in their first three drives while defensively forcing nine Mainland punts and two turnovers on downs.

At the 3:36 mark of the first quarter, senior quarterback BeSean McCray threw a 14-yard pass to Devon Buckhanon and followed up with a ten-yard first down run to set the Panthers up at the Mainland 48. Alford took the next handoff, ripped free of a tackler at the line of scrimmage and charged 37 yards down to the 11. After a seven-yard run by McCray, Brice Ingram took out a defensive tackle and a linebacker to clear a path for Alford, who hopped into the end zone from four yards out for a 7-0 lead. Mainland would be forced to punt it back to the Panthers less than two minutes later into the hands of Tanner Ingle, who returned the punt 35 yards to the Mainland 46. Devodney Alford took the second down handoff, slipped past a block from John Campbell and picked up two sensational downfield blocks by Davarius Bargnare and Michael Fox for a 28-yard gain. BeSean McCray followed next with a 13-yard touchdown run as DP doubled their lead to 14-0 at the outset of the second quarter. After the DP defense forced another punt, things could have been catastrophic for Mainland as senior Demarquis Cummings broke around the end, laid out and blocked the Mainland punt which was recovered by Joe Gulla at the 17-yard line. The Panthers couldn't capitalize on the field position or the momentum, unfortunately, but Mainland had their best opportunity just before the half. After driving down to the DP 28, Mainland's quarterback was sacked on first down by Stephen Dix for a four-yard loss and Brice Ingram knocked the ball loose which was recovered by the Buccaneers. A ten yard penalty, however, pushed them back to the 42 as the drive stalled with DP up 14-0 at the half.

The third quarter opened up with DP getting the ball but a rare turnover by the Panthers set up Mainland with another golden opportunity to get back in the game. From the DP 31, the Buccaneers drove down to the DP three in six plays but a series of penalties and a pair of negative plays forced a fourth and goal at the Panthers' seven before Brice Ingram crashed through the line and ripped down the ball carrier for a six-yard loss to kill the drive. That was the last time Mainland would threaten but DP wasn't done. After a 15-yard penalty on third and long gave the Panthers a first down at the Mainland 49, Devodney Alford broke loose again for a 46-yard gain and Brice Ingram followed up with his first rushing touchdown of his career, a three-yard run, to finish the 20-0 victory.

Dr. Phillips, ranked second in Florida in Class 8A prior to the game, will now head to Oak Ridge Friday night for its first district contest of the year. Kickoff is set for 7:00 pm.
