Davis had four drives in the game of 10 plays for more including one of 15 and another of 16. In those two drives alone, the Wolves consumed over 8 minutes off the clock in each drive.
Davis opened up a 12-0 lead in the first half on touchdown runs by Koleton Rawls and Tuff Hammons. Both players scored on one-yard runs.
Pauls Valley’s defense came up big in the second half forcing a pair of punts and a turn over on downs at the Panther one-yard line.
On the first play from scrimmage after the turnover on downs, Humphrey found a crease in the defense and got a block that sprung him to the side line where he outran the Davis defense for a 99-yard touchdown cutting the margin to a single score.
The Panthers tried an onside kick but the Wolves recovered at the Davis 48-yard line. Davis was able to run out the final 4:47 of the game holding on for a 12-7 win.
The Panthers finished with 215 total yards. Humphrey had 137 yards rushing on 12 carries. Landin Weilenman finished with 12 yards rushing. Humphrey was 6-of-12 passing for 70 yards and just missed on a couple more passes.
After two games, the Panthers will finally get to play at Thompson Field Friday night when the Tishomingo Indians come to town. The Indians are 0-2 on the season after a 54-32 loss to Allen on Friday night.
