Things didn’t start out right for the Demons as Benton Community scored 34 unanswered points on their way to a big win in Washington. The Demons for the fourth consecutive game got to start out with the football, their previous three games they put together touchdown drives to start, last night they had a fumbled snap on the second play which Benton recovered. The Bobcats then scored on a 28 yard run by quarterback Mitch Moser on their first play from the line of scrimmage. On the next drive the Demons fumbled on third down giving Benton another short field which they would score again. Then after a punt, Benton starting near mid-field, put together a touchdown drive to go up 21-0. They’d score again late in the first half to lead 27-0 at halftime. The Bobcats scored again early in the second half to lead 34-0. The Demons did score three touchdowns, one late in the third quarter and the others in the fourth, but the damage was done. The biggest thing was Benton won the battle up front and rarely were stopped for a loss or had to deal with third and long until late in the game. They also played on the Demons’ side of the field just about the entire first half. The Bobcats won 34-20 and improved to 2-2 on the season and 1-1 in the district. The Demons fall to 2-2 on the season and 0-2 in the district. Washington goes on the road to play Clear Creek-Amana next Friday.
