Matt Smith had 287 yards on the ground and four second-half touchdowns as Deer Valley ran away with a 54-28 home win Friday over College Park.
After an early third-quarter College Park touchdown cut the lead to 26-21, the Wolverines answered right back. After a ten-yard run by quarterback Nsimba Webster, Smith scored on a 51 yard run.
Deer Valley (2-2) recovered a fumble on the ensuing kickoff. The recovery by Frank Sturgis gave the Wolverines the ball on the Falcon 38. Five plays later, a 6-yard run by Smith increased the Wolverine lead to 40-21 with 4:47 left in the third.
Smith had six touchdowns total; five on the ground and one in the air. Webster threw for two scores and ran one in.
Johnny Croft led College Park (1-3) with 158 yards rushing, including a 73-yard touchdown scamper on a pitch to the right side in the second quarter.
There was a scary moment in the game's early moments as Deer Valley tight end/linebacker Elijah Iakopo left in an ambulance following a first-quarter collision stopping a run by Falcon quarterback Jordan Louis. Iakopo, who scored Deer Valley's first touchdown of the game on a 42-yard pass from Webster, was taken to a local hospital.
School officials said he was okay and the public address announcer told the crowd in the fourth quarter that he had been released.
