Football thrashes Olympia for District title
10/21/2017 1:16:00 PM

Senior quarterback BeSean McCray accounted for nearly 200 yards of offense and scored two touchdowns while the DP defense limited Olympia to just 46 yards rushing in a 31-10 victory to secure the Panthers' tenth consecutive District Championship.

In front of a packed house celebrating the school's 30th Homecoming, DP came out the gates on fire on both sides of the football. After Sterling Stockwell's 39-yard punt pinned the Titans at their own two yard line, senior Tarrie Reese pounced on a fumble to give DP possession at the Olympia nine. Four plays later, McCray lofted a fade into the right corner for Davarius Bargnare, who made a spectacular catch for his fifth touchdown reception of the year to give DP a 7-0 lead. After forcing a punt on the Titans' next drive, the Panthers took over the football at the Olympia 49, the second of four straight possessions inside Olympia territory, and it took all of three plays to double the lead. McCray found Devon Buckhanon for 12 yards, Devodney Alford ran for 15 more and after a pass interference penalty, Alford slipped into the end zone from 11 yards out for a 14-0 lead after one quarter. DP squandered two golden opportunities to blow the game wide open on successive second quarter drives that began deep inside Olympia territory but took advantage of Olympia's second turnover. After the Titans drove down to the DP 31, junior linebacker Cameron Williams forced a fumble that was recovered by senior Christian Williams. McCray then found Davarius Bargnare for a 43-yard gain down to the Olympia 20 and Sterling Stockwell put the Panthers up 17-0 with a 36-yard field goal. Olympia countered with a field goal on their ensuing possession but the Panthers led at the half, 17-3.

DP has owned the third quarter this year, having outscored its opposition, 72-14, and they stayed true to that on their first two drives of the second half. After Olympia connected for a score on a 44-yard heave on third and ten to pull within 17-10, DP quickly snatched back the momentum. Davarius Bargnare returned the kickoff 35 yards into Olympia territory and one play later, BeSean McCray faked the handoff and took off 40 yards for a touchdown to push the lead to 24-10. The DP defense held firm on Olympia's next possession and gave the offense the ball at the DP 43. McCray then hit Bargnare for 16 yards, ran for four more and Devodney Alford capped the quick drive by sliding past crushing blocks by John Campbell, Alesandro Martinez and Bobby Johnson and powered his way 37 yards for the final touchdown of the night.

DP was exceptional defensively as Japerri Powell (13 tackles, sack, forced fumble), Stephen Dix (12 tackles, two sacks) and Cameron Williams (11 tackles, forced fumble) lived in the Olympia backfield all night while Brice Ingram (nine tackles) and Jaquarri Powell (eight tackles, two sacks) were relentless as well. The victory was DP's 15th straight over Olympia and its 39th consecutive District victory dating back through 2008. The Panthers (6-2) will look to continue the District winning streak next Thursday as they host Cypress Creek on Senior Night and will be back in action the following Monday with the regular season finale at Timber Creek.
