GRAVETTE Gravette coach Bill Harrelson said a few weeks ago that backup quarterback Colton Davis would help the Lions win a game later in the season.
Later came against Berryville last Friday night.
Davis, subbing for injured starter Colt Moorman, completed 8 of 12 passes for 103 yards and two touchdowns as Gravette overwhelmed Berryville 35-0 in a 1-4A Conference game.
Gravette is 8-1 overall and 5-1 in the conference. The win, coupled by Gentry’s win against Prairie Grove, all but gives the Lions second place in the conference behind Shiloh Christian.
Davis, a junior, started in place of Moorman, who was held out of action after suffering a high ankle sprain in the loss to Shiloh Christian.
Davis’ first touchdown pass was a 36-yarder tosophomore Darrick Strzelecki that made it 14-0 at half-time.
Davis also tossed a 23-yard touchdown to senior David O’Brien to make it 28-0 in the third quarter.
“Colton has prepared every week,” Harrelson said. “He really came through for us tonight.”
Senior running back Michael Croasdell carried 17 times for 102 yards and scored on runs of 1, 36 and 20 yards for the Lions.
Cody Montee made all five of his extra-point attempts.
Parent’s Night will be observed this Friday night at Lion Field when the Lions meet the Prairie Grove Tigers in the final regular-season game of the season.
Parents of members of the football and golf teams, cheerleaders and band members will be recognized at 6:30 p.m. prior to the 7 p.m. kickoff.
