Spartans clip DCA on road

Coach David Meske won his 200 game as Webb defeated Donelson Christian Academy 35-21, Sept. 16.

The win came in Meske's 27th season as head coach of the Spartans (3-2, 2-0 Div II-A).

"I'm not worried about 200," he said. "Our kids played well. That was a good football team we played."

After Neil Butler recovered a DCA fumble on the opening possession, junior quarterback Jack Grayson threw his first touchdown pass of the season on a 25-yard route to Butler.

The next Wildcat possession took 5:15 before Kyle Kennedy's one-yard score, tying Webb at 7-7.

Brian Berube's 11-yard and Caleb Blance's seven-yard touchdown runs put Webb up 21-7 as the two scored in a three minute margin before halftime.

Donelson stalled the next Spartan scoring opportunity, forcing a fumble at the goal line which led to Kennedy finding Collin Johnston for a touchdown and cutting the lead to eight, following a missed extra point.

"They have a lot of talented kids," Meske said. "But every time they came back a little bit, we came back after them."

Two minutes later, Grayson threw for his second touchdown. A 70-yard pass and run to Berube put Webb up 28-13.

Grayson finished three for five passing with 67 yards and two touchdowns. "It felt great tonight," he said. "I had excellent blocking for me and the receivers got up and made plays. All around great effort."

Kennedy and Johnston responded again, this time from 13 yards, and a two-point conversion cut Webb's lead to seven before Blance set the final score at 35-21.

Blance eclipsed the 100-yard mark for the third time, amassing 217 yards with two touchdowns.

With the win, Webb moved into first place in Division II-A East/Middle, and will have a three-game winning streak heading into Thursday's game against Catholic (2-2).

"It's going to be a little more difficult to prepare on a short week," Grayson said. "But we care so much about beating Catholic and I don't think we should have a problem."

Kickoff is set for 7 pm at Faust Field in the annual Battle of the Bluff.
