Falcons fall in overtime

Despite a 247 yard rushing effort from Chase Devitt, O-A/BC-IG came up one point short in a 21-20 overtime district football loss to Logan-Magnolia Friday in Logan.

Devitt’s 247 yards came on 34 carries, which averages out to 7.3 yards per carry. Devitt’s yardage was 21 yards short of the O-A/BC-IG school record of 268 yards held by Cash Wilcke.

“Devitt had a great game,” noted Falcon coach Larry Allen. “I don’t like to have one player carry the ball that much, but when he is averaging about eight yards per carry it is hard not to give him the ball.

“In the first quarter, a lot of his yards were on his own, but after the first quarter we started to open some holes for him and he responded well to that.”
