KAYSVILLE – Both the Davis Darts and Taylorsville Warriors football teams entered the season unbeaten at 2-0.
For Davis, that’s not much of a surprise. However for the Warriors, it was the team’s first 2-0 start to a season in some time.
But after Colton Chronister tossed three first half touchdowns, the Darts scored another touchdown in the second half and held the Warriors scoreless in a 28-0 shutout victory.
Chronister’s first touchdown pass came with just under one minute remaining in the first quarter, a 72-yard touchdown pass to Abel Porter for a 7-0 lead.
Davis held Taylorsville to a pair of three-and-outs in its next two possessions, then scored a touchdown on a seven-play, 70-yard drive that was capped off with a touchdown pass from Chronister to Parker Rose for a 14-point lead.
Rose caught another touchdown from Chronister late in the first half, an eight-yard touchdown for a 21-0 lead with 36 seconds remaining in the half.
The Davis defense served as a key component to the Darts’ first half lead, forcing Taylorsville to a trio of three-and-outs in five possessions.
Chronister’s feet accounted for the last touchdown of the night, a five-yard run in the third quarter.
Chronister was 15-of-24 passing with 234 yards and four total touchdowns. Parker Rose ran for 116 yards on 20 carries with a pair of receiving touchdowns.
The Darts will face Syracuse, which beat Mountain Crest 21-10, Thursday night at 7 p.m.
