David Douglas’ 23-13 win over Barlow on Friday night came down to a single play.

Clinging to a two-point lead, the Scots were on the verge of adding to their lead with a first down at the 4-yard line. But in a pile up near the goal line, David Douglas was hit with a personal foul penalty and had a player ejected from the game.

With one yellow flag, the Scots went from a sure seven points to the fringe of field-goal range.

Then came the play.

QB Hunter Davis rolled out to his right and quickly encountered trouble. The sideline was only a few steps away, and Barlow linebacker Noah Blauert was bearing down from behind. Knowing his target was out of room, Blauert dived face first. Davis stopped and spiraled a pass toward the end zone a blink before feeling Blauert’s shoulder pads in his back.

“They were lined up in a goal line set and were sending more people than we could block,” Davis said. “I scrambled and got the throw off, letting my receiver make a play.”

Dominique Peek did just that, hauling in an over-the-shoulder grab in traffic at the front pylon to the 18-yard touchdown and a 16-7 lead.

The Scots would add another score early in the fourth quarter to secure their first league win.
