It was business as usual for the Washington football team Friday night, as everything was clicking on all cylinders en route to a 73-0 win over West Burlington, Notre Dame.

The Demons wasted no time as they marched 60 yards down the field on six plays in the opening drive capped off by a six-yard touchdown run by Jack Redlinger. After a thirty minute lightning delay the Demons got right back at it with a 30-yard field goal from Anthony Torres. The next drive sophomore quarterback Luke Turner showed off his arm by lofting up a 16-yard fade pass to Jaivonn Willis in the back of the endzone for the score. The Demons broke things open on a 16-yard touchdown run from Redlinger and then a 35-yard run from Turner to push the score to 31-0. Late in the second quarter Dalton Myers got in on the action with a 25 yard receiving touchdown and a couple rushing touchdowns later the Demons held a commanding 52-0 lead at the break.

Plenty of new faces played much of the second half for the Demons and they never skipped a beat. A couple Cade Hennigan touchdowns and one from Cade Pohren sealed the deal for the dominating 73-0 district win.

While the offense was more than electric the big story of the game has to be on the other side of the ball. Going up against a unique offense in the triple option and a team that is second in the district in rushing yards, the Demon defense held the Falcons to one yard of total offense in the first half. You read that right, one. Everything offensively the Falcons were trying to do the Demons were right there and played excellent assignment football.

With the win the Demons improve to 6-1 on the year as the Falcons drop to 2-5. With a playoff spot on the line the Demons welcome Oskaloosa (5-2) to town on Friday for senior night.
