WEST VALLEY CITY—The first two times the Davis Darts touched the football Friday night versus Hunter, they scored. It turned out those two first-quarter touchdowns was all they’d need.

Davis rolled to a 29-7 non-region victory over the Wolverines, evening the Darts’ record at 1-1 in the young season.

It began when senior Tyler Hinds returned the opening kickoff 93 yards for a score. Hinds wasn’t even touched as he swept to  the right side and ran for paydirt. Davis tried, but failed, for a two-point conversion, but the Darts led 6-0 just 16 seconds into the game.

Following a defensive stand, Davis took over at its own 33. On first down, quarterback Parker Christiansen handed off to Mason White, who broke off right tackle and scooted 67 yards for a  score. Again, a two-point conversion failed, leaving Davis up 12-0 with 9:10 remaining in the first quarter.

Both teams stiffened on defense, and Hunter found new, but short-lived, life when the Wolverines scored a four-yard TD just before halftime. Joseph Tiatia got Hunter on the board, and Alma Hansen’s PAT made it 12-7 Davis at half.

But the second half was all Darts, on both sides of the ball. Midway through the third quarter, a long Davis drive culminated with a four-yard TD pass from Christiansen to Christian Smith. Case Clampitt’s PAT made it 19-7. Just before the period ended, Clampitt hit a 22 yard field goal to stretch the lead. And following a strong defensive stand deep in Hunter territory, the Darts scored with 9:35 remaining when Christiansen dashed 27 yards for a TD.
