Prep football: Davie-Thomasville preview

Time: 7:30 p.m.
Records: Thomasville 1-3; Davie County 1-3
Series: Thomasville leads 11-2
Last meeting: Bulldogs won 38-34 in 2008 in a game that was postponed twice
Streak: Davie hasn’t beaten the Bulldogs since 1962
Last week: Thomasville lost to Albemarle 14-13; Davie got its first win by beating Providence Day 26-7
Next week: Thomasville is at Asheboro; Davie is at Salisbury
Game notes: Thomasville scored 15 points in the last five minutes to rally past Davie in 2008 at Cushwa Stadium. It was a shootout, with Davie piling up 340 yards of offense and Thomasville rolling for 420.
Both teams are 1-3 this season ó and that’s not a typo. Both have played difficult early schedules and have lots of new faces.
Thomasville failed on a two-point conversion last week in the final seconds and lost to rival Albemarle.
A week earlier, Thomasville lost to A.L. Brown in the final minute.
QB Sam Nelson threw two TD passes last week. He found Brandon Lucas and De Dow.
Davie finally got a win last week after losing to Alexander Central, Page and West Rowan. Alexander Central and West are still unbeaten.
Davie’s offensive numbers are improving rapidly. QB Jacob Barber has rushed for 176 yards and thrown for 393 since missing opening night with bruised ribs. Skeeter Montgomery(244 rushing yards) and Nick Bohannon have provided a serviceable running game. Joe Watson (13 catches, 247 yards, three TDs) leads the receiving corps. Devaron Scott, a 300-pounder, is a force on the O-line.
Davie’s defensive numbers (20.8 points, 303.8 yards per game) still aren’t attractive, but they are headed in the right direction.
