Davis scores four times, but Renton falls to Decatur 32-28
After an exciting last-minute win in their opening game, the Renton could not hang on to a fourth quarter lead Thursday night as Decatur scored to final 14 points to beat the Indians 32-28 at Renton Memorial Stadium.
In a game that was a battle of running backs, Renton's Ernie Davis ran for three touchdowns and caught one more but it wasn't enough to top the four rushing and one receiving touchdown scored be Decatur's Isaiah Diggs.
After a scoreless first quarter, Davis ran for a pair of 2-yard touchdowns in the second to give the Gators a 12-0 lead at the half.
Diggs picked up his third touchdown in the third quater to make the score 18-0, but the Indians came roaring back with four straight touchdowns from Davis.
Davis first put the Indians on the board with a 52-yard pass-and-run from quarterback Elijah Clayton and then scored on a 1-yard and 15-yard run before the quarter ended. With all three touchdowns getting successful point-after kicks, Renton went into the final quarter with a 21-18 lead.
Things continued to look up for Renton as Davis opened the fourth quarter with a 26-yard run for his fourth touchdown of the game and a 28-18 lead.
But then Diggs took the game back into his hands, taking in a 1-yard rush for a touchdown (kick failed) and finally catching a 49-yard pass from Isaiah Hatch. Diggs then ran in the point-after to put Decatur up 32-28 and time ran out on the Indians.
Renton heads to Foster next Friday to take on the Bulldogs.
