Wenatchee wins second in a row, shuts out Davis
QUINCY — Wenatchee Panther football pseudo-hosted Davis High in one of the few pockets of breathable air Friday night, in Quincy.
The Pirates have been a team still struggling to find their first win of the season. Wenatchee would prolong that stat after 42-0 victory.
The Panthers' strategy kept the ball on the ground in a game moved out of Wenatchee because of poor air quality caused by wildfire smoke.
“We ran the ball really well,” Wenatchee head coach Scott Deveraux said. “We didn’t attempt many passes, but each run would get us a lot of yards.”
By halftime, Wenatchee led 19-0. Davis tried a similar tactic, but the Panther defense was near impenetrable.
“Davis might have only had one or two rushes that went over eight yards,” Deveraux said.
Wenatchee executed their game plan to the letter.
“I’m proud of them. Adjusting to the location change last minute and getting off the bus ready to play.”
Wenatchee’s record is now 3-4.
Wenatchee heads to Sunnyside next Thursday, Oct. 20 for a 7 p.m. kickoff.
