The Blue Devils snuck away with a 20-14 win over region opponent Winston County Friday night at home.

FHS opened up the scoring early in the first quarter on a 10-yard pass from Aaron Dove to Christian Angulo. Marcus Klocek added the extra point.

Caleb Vinson scored the second touchdown for the Blue Devils in the second quarter on a three-yard carry for a score. Klocek missed his extra point attempt, giving Falkville the lead 13-0.

Vinson scored a second touchdown toward the end of the second quarter to give FHS a three-touchdown lead at the half. Klocek added the PAT just before halftime, sending the score to 20-0.

FHS’ defense struggled much through the second half, and Winston County was able to score in both the third and fourth quarters – but that was not enough to come back and beat Falkville. FHS went on to win 20-14.

Dove finished 14/23 passing for 139 yards and one touchdown. Vinson managed 164 yards on 26 attempts and two rushing touchdowns. Alex Fowler pulled down two passes for 54 yards; Fred Walls managed five receptions for 37 yards; and Noah Holmes had four catches for 18 yards.

In tackles, Jacob Holladay led with eight solo tackles and 13 assists. Alex Fowler and Fred Walls had three solo tackles, and four and three assists, respectively.

Head Coach Joel Schrenk said although the Blue Devils had a solid first half of football, they struggled in the second half.

“We got out to a fast start but couldn’t gain any momentum in the second half,” Schrenk said. “Winston County did a good job of making adjustments. Sometimes it is good to grind out a win, so we will use it as watching experience.

“Our defense is really playing well right now,” he added. “We had several fourth down stops, the biggest being late in the game – they had a first-and-goal from the eight and didn’t score. We just have to keep plugging and doing what we have been doing.”

Falkville will travel to Tanner Friday night for a conference game.
