The Blue Devil football falls 17-7 in their season opener to Skyview High School from Vancouver, Washington, on Sept. 5.

The first half only produced three points for the visiting Storms off a 40-yard field goal from Skyview’s Braden Hadfield.

The Storms continued their unanswered lead in the 3rd quarter with a 34-yard touchdown run from Wa-Hi’s wide receiver Josh Emmy. The Blue Devils attempt to put their first points on after the touchdown from Emmy resulted in Wa-Hi’s senior quarterback Trevor Coronado’s first interception of the night. The Blue Devil defense forced a turnover on downs but on the ensuing drive, facing 3rd and long, Coronado threw a deep ball which was picked off for a 35-yard interception touchdown return from Skyview’s Andrue Jordan.

Coronado finally put the Blue Devils on the board with a 59-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Reid Magnaghi on a 3rd and long situation with time left in the 4th quarter. The offense’s efforts to cap off the game with another touchdown fell just short, ending their season opener 17-7.

Magnaghi led the Blue Devil receivers with 93 yards, followed by Mitchell Huffman’s 39-yard performance.

Coronado finished the night 11-for-22 with 174 yards in the air, one touchdown and two interceptions to go along with 30 yards rushing.

Running back Noah Porter ran 8 of the 14 carries for the night, finishing with 34 yards followed by Willie Hayes with 11 yards on 4 carries.
