DANVILLE-Southmont knew it would run into a unique Danville team Friday night. They just didn't know they would look so different themselves.

With starting fullback Nathaniel Farabee out as a preventative measure following an accident, senior quarterback Mitch Dehne moved to fullback and freshman Cam Chadd got his first start under center.

"It was out of basically necessity tonight," Southmont head coach Desson Hannum explained. "Obviously we were not prepared to do that. We planned on going in the game with Mitch at quarterback and Nathaniel at fullback. Nathaniel had a car accident this morning and he's fine, but it was just a precautionary measure that he's not playing.

"For the most part we still tried to run what we wanted to," Hannum added. "It will be good experience for (Cam) as he grows toward the future and he did alright tonight. It's never easy to be put in that situation right before game time. Especially as a freshman."

The new look couldn't trigger any magic as the Warriors (3-4, 3-2 SAC) trounced the Mounties (2-5, 1-4 SAC) 50-6.

For the second week in a row, Danville used big plays to get the job done. They did the same last week in an upset of Lebanon. This week, the shortest Warrior score came from 10 yards out. They scored on runs of 10, 18, 30, 32, 40 and 62. They also returned a fumble 44 yards for a touchdown.

"They're pretty good up front. They have a lot of seniors and they probably overwhelmed us in the second half," Hannum said. "They just kept pounding on us and it was just a matter of time until something was going to bust."

That was in direct contrast to what Southmont was able to do. South managed just 60 rushing yards on 37 carries. Twenty-six of those yards came from the reserves in the fourth quarter.

Chadd didn't find any luck through the air on a rainy night, either. He threw for 52 yards on five completions, but 44 yards came on a pair of 22-yard connections with Jarrett Todd that didn't result in a score.

The only touchdown of the night for Southmont came when the rain was hitting the hardest. Southmont fumbled on consecutive possessions. The first time, the Warriors took over and the offense marched in for a score. The second fumble was followed by two straight fumbles by Danville, the second of which sophomore Kaleb Swick snatched up and ran 78 yards the other way for the Mounties' only score.

"It's good to see kids staying united and playing hard when it's a lopsided loss like this. They're still scrapping until the end," Hannum said.

All said, Danville outgained Southmont 325-112 in total offense. The Warriors averaged 9.6 yards per carry while racking up 316 yards on the ground. The Mounties averaged just 1.6.

The tasks don't get any easier for Southmont next week. They play host to Tri-West, who all-but clinched the Sagamore Athletic Conference with a win over Western Boone Friday night. From here out, the Mounties will look to play spoiler, get healthy and focus on the postseason.
