Farmington's Kale Lucas tackles Durango's Dawson Marcum Friday at DHS.

DURANGO – Dawson Marcum and the Durango Demons took the sting out of the Farmington Scorpions early Friday night, as all phases of the game clicked for Durango High School.

Behind 156 first-half rushing yards from Marcum and stifling defense that held Farmington to less than 100 yards of total offense in the first half, the Demons (3-2) took a 26-0 lead into halftime against the visiting Scorpions (2-3). The onslaught continued in the second half, as DHS secured a 45-0 victory.

“Durango beat us, more than anything,” Farmington coach Jeff Dalton said. “They had a great game plan. They saw us run the ball well the last two weeks, and coach Vogt does a really good job putting kids in position. That was probably the strongest and fastest kids we’ve played against this year so far. It’s kind of a different level for us. We need to learn from that and step up and just get better.”
