GetSportsFocus.com – They say “defense wins championships” but tonight Deer Valley (11-1) proved that their high-powered offense can steal the show. Quarterback Nsimba Webster led the Wolverines to a 67-44 win over the James Logan Colts (9-3). Webster, the BVAL MVP threw for 240 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for three touchdowns on 152 yards.
With a 14-14 game in the second quarter, Deer Valley kicked off and Jeff Robinson got the crowd on their feet after laying out Logan running back Ahki Muhammad on the return. The ball was knocked loose and returned to the end zone for a 22-yard touchdown by Nzuzi Webster. That moment changed the game as the Wolverines would go into halftime with a 36-20 lead. The Wolverines’ last TD before half was an amazing 94-yard run by Nsimba Webster. Nsimba would use his arm in the last two quarters finding Mike Hamilton and Rob Taylor in the end zone.
The James Logan defense had held opponents to 14 points or less seven times this season and allowing 67 points was definitely not expected. Ahki Muhammad would return to the game just before halftime and rushed for three touchdowns on the night. The Colts tried their best to shoot it out with the Wolverines as they were outscored 31-24 in the second half. Key turnovers and lack of pressure kept Logan in catch-up mode most of the game.
No. 4 Deer Valley now moves onto the NCS Division I semifinals for the first time in school history as they head to De La Salle (11-0) next Friday. The Spartans are the top seed in the playoffs and shut out Granada 46-0 in the quarterfinals.
