Drury Falls to Amherst
A turnover-filled game Saturday saw the Drury Blue Devils fall to Amherst, 24-6 on John J. DelNegro Field.
iBerkshires.com reports it was a tough game on the offensive side of the ball for the Blue Devils (1-3), as they committed five turnovers.
On the first series of the game, Drury found itself chasing the ball after an interception led to a quick strike from the Amherst offense: a 60-yard touchdown pass from James Mills to Isaiah Moyston.
Mills threw for 221 yards and three touchdowns. Wide Receiver Moyston scored two of the touchdowns on 103 receiving yards, while teammate Steven Steele added 108 yards and one touchdown.
All of Amherst’s offense came through the air and in the first half of the game. They were able to take a advantage of the turnovers and turn them into points.
Drury went into the half trailing 24-0.
The third quarter was a bit of a stalemate as both teams continued to move the ball up and down the field.
Drury eventually got the stop they needed once again, but the clock was not on their side. They drove the ball down the field from pinned in their own territory, but the clock ran out before being able to get another score.
Drury moves to 1-3 on the year and will match up with Belchertown next Friday on the road. Amherst (2-2) takes on Woodstock Academy next Friday on the road.
