Coming into the season, Eldorado knew it would be able to score points.
The question was if the Sundevils could limit opponents. After Friday night, they might have found their answer.
Eldorado posted its first shutout in four years, stifling Durango 34-0.
“They’re getting better every week,” Eldorado coach Vernon Brown said of his defense. “At the beginning of the year, we knew we had a lot of young guys and didn't know what to expect. But tonight, we were lights out on defense.”
The Sundevils recorded five takeaways, putting the offense into favorable situations to succeed. Junior quarterback Deven Dabbs threw two touchdown passes, one to Joshua Brown and one to Tyler Spivey.
Brown added a 40-yard interception return for a touchdown. Marcel Hemingway also had an interception to go with a rushing touchdown.
After winning two games combined over the last two seasons, Eldorado has started 2014 with a perfect 3-0 record.
“It’s been a while since Eldorado has started 3-0,” Brown said. “I’d have to ask some of the older guys who have been around Eldorado for a while, but I’ve got to think it’s the first 3-0 start in at least 10 years. We just want to keep getting better and riding that wave.”
