The Blue Devils managed a seemingly easy victory over the Cold Springs Eagles at home Friday night, 63-7.

Just one minute into the opening quarter, FHS quarterback Andy Dove connected with Noah Holmes on a 74-yard pass play for a touchdown. Marcus Klocek added the first extra point of the game.

A 45-yard pass play came in at the 7:30 mark of the first quarter, when Dove found Christian Angulo for another touchdown. Klocek remained true on his extra point attempts.

Cold Springs fought back, and the Eagles put their first score of the ballgame on the board with 6:33 to play in the opening quarter. Nathan Harris moved the ball 68-\ yards for a touchdown, and the extra point that followed was good. Falkville still led the Eagles 14-7.

With just under two minutes to play before the second quarter, following a 14-play drive, Dove found Holmes again on a 14-yard pass for a touchdown. Klocek helped extend the lead 21-7.

A well-executed six-play drive granted the next Blue Devil touchdown. Caleb Vinson made his way into the end zone on a 1-yard carry. Klocek did not miss a PAT beat, and FHS led 28-7 at the 8:47 mark of the second quarter.

Five minutes later, Dove completed a six-yard pass to Angulo for another touchdown. The extra point was true by Klocek, and FHS led 35-7.

The Blue Devil offense was not satisfied with a four-touchdown lead, so with just eight seconds to go before the half, FHS put together one more touchdown-scoring drive. Caleb Vinson moved the ball five yards after several big rushes, sending the lead 41-7 after two quarters.

After a long, methodical drive by Cold Springs that the Eagles were unable to convert, the Blue Devils got the ball back in the middle of the third quarter. Fred Walls took the ball eight yards for a touchdown at the 4:07 mark of the third quarter. Klocek added the extra point, and Falkville extended the lead to 48-7.

After a quick Eagles punt, Falkville put only two plays together, which ended successfully following a 73-yard run by Walls and a two-point conversion from Dove to Vinson.

Another three-and-out by the Eagles opened up running room for one more Blue Devil touchdown. A quick four-play drive, which included a block in the back penalty by the Blue Devils, led to one final score. Jacob Holladay ran the ball 54 yards to help put the final points on the board. Klocek’s PAT was good, and the Devils won 63-7 in their 2017 Homecoming game.

Dove finished 19/24 with zero interceptions and four touchdowns for 333 yards. Vinson had 141 yards on 16 rushes, while Fred Walls finished 114 yards on seven rushes. Holmes had a night-high of 134 receiving yards on six catches with two touchdowns. Angulo had 133 yards on six catches for two touchdowns.

Jordan Pace managed four tackles on the night with four assists.

Falkville is off Sept. 30 but will return to play Oct. 6 at Sumiton Christian.

Falkville named the 2017 homecoming queen, senior Paige Garner, during the halftime presentation at Burl Vet Stadium.
