Football hammers Timber Creek

Quarterback BeSean McCray got off to another hot start and finished 21 of 30 passing for 198 yards as Dr. Phillips Football dispatched host Timber Creek, 35-14, in the Panthers' regular season finale. McCray completed passes to six different receivers and started the game a perfect 9 for 9 while Devodney Alford rushed for 109 yards on 17 carries and scored a pair of touchdowns. The DP defense dominated Timber Creek, allowing just one first down and four yards rushing through the first three quarters.

On DP's opening drive, McCray connected on first down passes to Bobby Johnson, Devon Buckhanon and Michael Fox before Devodney Alford trotted in untouched from a yard out to put DP up 7-0. After the defense forced a three and out, the Panthers marched right down the field again. Michael Fox's 16-yard punt return to the 25 set up a 38-yard pass from McCray to Buckhanon and a 19-yard completion to Jacquez Jones. And then things got strange. On first down at the Timber Creek 31, McCray faked a handoff to Devodney Alford and galloped 31 yards for an apparent touchdown but the referee, himself fooled on the fake, ruled Alford was down at the 32, despite never having the football. Sterling Stockwell's 40-yard punt pinned the Wolves at their own two and the defense tightened again, forcing a three and out. Both teams exchanged turnovers, however, but it was the Panthers that capitalized on their opportunity. Brice Ingram's fumble recovery gave DP possession at the Timber Creek 46 and five plays later, BeSean McCray faked a handoff to Alford, who was not whistled down this time, and McCray raced straight up the gut 35 yards for a touchdown. Up 14-0 midway through the second quarter, DP was in command but with 3:14 left and the Panthers driving near midfield, Timber Creek picked off a pass and returned it 42 yards for a score to cut their deficit to 14-6.

DP opened up their second half offense with consecutive touchdowns to blow the game open. With 10:50 left in the third, McCray picked up a first down on an eight-yard run, Brandon Fields' 15-yard run gave DP a first down at the 18 and two plays later. McCray hit Davarius Bargnare for a 20-yard touchdown to push the lead to 21-6. Another Timber Creek three and out set DP up at their own 45 and it took all of five plays to capitalize on the field position. Devodney Alford busted through for a gain of 29 and three plays later, Tanner Ingle took the snap and shot right up the middle for a 12-yard touchdown run to make it 29-6 at the 5:28 mark. In the fourth quarter, DP drove 65 yards in seven plays and capped off their night with a 22-yard touchdown run by Devodney Alford for the 35-14 final. 

Devon Buckhanon led the receiving corps with five catches for 79 yards, Michael Fox finished with six receptions for 55 yards and Davarius Bargnare closed with five catches for 34 yards. BeSean McCray rushed for 48 yards on four carries and Brandon Fields picked up 47 yards on nine carries. Defensively, Tevin Griffey notched his first career interception. Dr. Phillips will now await the results from Friday night's games to determine who they will host in the Regional Quarterfinal, Friday, November 10th.
