Devils dismantle winless Kirby

The Germantown High School varsity football team got its first win of the season Friday night thanks in large part to the legs of senior running back Damon Cox.

The Red Devils defeated Kirby 45-2 at their first home game of the season.

Cox, who also plays cornerback for Germantown, finished the game with 154 yards and three touchdowns.

By allowing less than 140 total yards and grabbing two interceptions from Kirby quarterback Cedric Crawford, Germantown’s defense also came up big in the win.

Germantown got on the scoreboard quickly in the game with a 28-yard dash from Cox. The senior scored two more touchdowns in the first quarter of play to give the Red Devils a 21-0 lead going into the second quarter.

Despite staring the second quarter with an offensive miscue that resulted in a safety, Kirby’s only points of the game, Germantown scored 10 more points before the half on a 27-yard run from sophomore back Caleb Brown and a quarter-field kick from Chris Little.

Brown scored again after halftime to give the Red Devils a 38-2 lead. Senior Justin Roberson scored the team’s final points on a fourth-quarter touchdown run from 14 yards.

Germantown quarterback Samuel Martin completed half of his passes for 70 yards.

The Red Devils will play at Hendersonville (0-2) at 7 p.m. this Friday.
