The Durango High School football team scored almost every time it touched the ball Friday against Pagosa Springs, blowing out the Pirates 58-0 to start its season.

“I’m proud of their effort,” said DHS head coach Todd Casebier. “I thought we played with great energy tonight.”

The Demons only needed 14 minutes to put 44 points on the scoreboard and make it a running clock for the rest of the contest.

The team’s first possession was its longest drive of the game, taking 11 plays for the Demons to march 65 yards down the field. The team’s next longest drive of the half was three plays.

Running back Zach Haber set the tone with a 10-yard run on the first play from scrimmage. Nate Messier had a 14-yard run and then, after a false start backed the team up, DHS used a trick play on fourth-and-8 to pick up 14 yards and a first down. Quarterback Tyler Harms pitched the ball to Chase Robertson who completed a pass to Jordan Stanly to keep the drive alive.

Messier eventually rushed in the end zone from 3 yards out for the team’s first score.

Ben Belt had a sack on Pagosa’s first drive and PHS went three-and-out.

On Durango’s next drive, Messier broke free and was off to the races before eventually getting pushed out of bounds at the 10 after picking up 47 yards. Haber then punched it in with a 15-yard run.

Safety Ean Goodwin intercepted a pass and ran it back into the end zone on Pagosa’s next drive, but a block in the back penalty brought the ball back to the 30-yard line.
