Duncanville Rolls Over North Crowley

Filed under: Sports |

Duncanville defense and offense came out firing on all cylinders in their home opener at Panther Stadium this past Friday night.

North Crowley started out with the ball on their own 27, but failed to advance the ball with the Panther defense holding them to four and out. North Crowley punted the ball, and the Panthers returned it to the Crowley 20.

Aaron Piper rushed for 15 yards on the Panthers first play.  Deandre Grimes completed a 12-yard pass to Jeff Thomas to take the ball down to the Crowley 3-yard line.   On fourth and goal from the three, Grimes hit Thomas for a 3-yard touchdown pass.  Hector Sifuentes’ PAT made the score 7-0 Duncanville with 8:35 left in the first quarter.

On the next North Crowley possession, they fared no better than the first.  They only managed to move the ball a total of 7 yards, thanks to a Dre’lyn Holley fumble that Crowley got back.

After the Crowley punt it was Duncanville’s turn to put the ball on the turf when Deandre Grimes fumbled the ball, but Duncanville recovered.  It was also Duncanville’s turn to go four and out and punt the ball away with 4:37 remaining in the first quarter.

Crowley took possession on the 50-yard line and started marching down the field. Crowley’s Josh Price and A.J. Hartfield put together three runs for a combined 18 yards and a 12-yard Price pass to Xavier Matthews put the ball on the Duncanville 18.  That’s where the Panther defense made a stand and forced Crowley to attempt a 37-yard field goal that missed.

Duncanville took over on their own 4-yard line and Jaquan Cole ripped off a nice 26-yard run to move the ball out to the Panther 30 yard line. A 30-yard pass from Grimes to Thomas kept Duncanville moving the ball.

At the end of the first quarter, the score remained 7-0 Duncanville.

Duncanville continued their drive with a Cole 12 yard run and a Grimes to Terry Cooper 11-yard pass. That was followed up by a Grimes 12 yard rush to the Crowley 17 and a Grimes to Cooper 16 yard pass to the North Crowley 8.   A North Crowley penalty and two runs by Cole put the ball in the end zone and Duncanville increased their lead to 14-0 with Sifuentes’ PAT with 7:17 left in the second.

The Duncanville defense only needed one play to get the ball back when North Crowley’s Price put the ball on the turf and Duncanville recovered. Duncanville only needed a 37 yard run by Cole to score again.  Sifuentes’ PAT failed and Duncanville led 20-0 with 7:03 remaining in the second quarter.

North Crowley only got six plays off before Duncanville forced another punt, and Duncanville took over on their own 28.

Thanks to a North Crowley penalty, the ball was moved to the Duncanville 43 and 2 plays later Grimes hit Piper for a 51-yard touchdown.  Sifuentes’ kick was good and Duncanville now led 27-0 with 3:01 remaining in the half.

On the next series of downs Josh Price decided to do it all for North Crowley.  Price combined with Matthews and Joshua Sweet for 46 yards in passing and Price ran for the rest to put North Crowley on the board. An Alex Ventimilla PAT was good.

Duncanville went into the locker room with a 27-7 lead. Duncanville outgained North Crowley 210 yards to 129 in the first half.

Duncanville continued their offensive domination in the third quarter.  Grimes completed passes to Art Zapata and Thomas to move the ball down from their own 20 to the North Crowley 23.  From there Piper added on a 9-yard run before Grimes hit Terry Cooper for a 23-yard touchdown pass.  Sifuentes’ PAT was good and the score was now Duncanville 34 – North Crowley 7.

Three North Crowley runs moved the ball out to their own 48, but the next three plays were incomplete passes and Price’s punt was blocked and Duncanville took over on the North Crowley 11-yard line.

Three plays later Duncanville scored again on a Grimes to Zapata 9 yard pass.  The PAT failed and Duncanville now leads 40-7.

North Crowley’s possession started on their own 17 and Price ran for 54 yards during the drive.  Thanks to two defensive penalties, Price was able to score on a 2-yard run.  Ventimilla’s PAT was good and the score was now 40-14 with 2:47 left in the third.

In the fourth quarter both teams traded possessions, with neither team managing to score.

For the game, Duncanville compiled 399 total yards to North Crowley’s 288.

Duncanville moved to 2-1 on the seasoand has next week off.  North Crowley falls to 0-3 and faces Weatherford at home.
