The Women’s Tackle Football League’s Sacramento Sirens agree.
No response. No solution. No resistance.
Sirens had a lengthy bus trip home.
In her first game for the Bricks this season, Davis scored three rushing touchdowns, one receiving, and one kickoff return to help Brickhouse advance to the WTFL Western Conference championship game with a 44-6 win over Sacramento at Eastside High School.
Davis said it was fantastic to return to the team. They welcomed me. Our attack and defense excelled. Unity is vital. More than football. Being one.”
Jessica Davis and the Brickhouse Bricks ensured that.
USC track athlete and US bobsled team member Davis dashed six times for 122 yards and three touchdowns. As El Segundo High’s track coach, she missed the regular season.
Second-seeded Bricks (4-1) won two games on Saturday. First, they defeated the team they defeated 36-0 on May 22 in the regular season finale, and second, they learnt of the top-seeded Houston Power (3-2) surprise loss to the fourth-seeded Houston Phoenix-Fire (1-4), 12-6.
On June 24, Brickhouse will host the Western Conference championship. WFTL “Legacy Bowl” at Daytona Beach awaits the winner.
Brickhouse head coach Brandon Manning stated. I believed we were undisciplined. Just practice. A win is a win. I’m happy, but we left a lot on the field. We’ll clean up in the championship.”
The Sirens kicked off the game and got off the van. Davis grabbed the ball and scored 85 yards unimpeded. After the two-point convert, the Bricks lead 8-0.
After a Sacramento turnover on downs, the Bricks returned. Brickhouse took the ball to the Sirens’ 20-yard line and Davis returned at wide receiver.
Davis caught the jump ball from quarterback Channika Gant and scored from 20 yards out. Davis got two touches and two scores. First-quarter Bricks led 16-0.
“I feel great, but this is not a one-woman show,” Davis added. “Everyone worked together. I can’t score without my blocks. Communication and attitude need improvement. We must follow our coach.”
Brickhouse allowed 101 yards all night. Bree Berry’s 76-yard touchdown run trimmed the Bricks’ advantage to 16-6 after one play.
The Bricks’ defense had one misstep all night.
Davis scored her third touchdown before halftime. Her 36-yard quarterback keeper put her team up 22-6. Brickhouse ran for 258 yards on 25 carries the whole game. Moore scored on eight carries for 69 yards.
Moore noted the defense was disciplined and everyone came together. “We stopped when needed. We followed our game plan. We erred mentally. Football’s 90% mental. We’ll beat any squad if we’re mentally prepared.”
Davis’ 58-yard touchdown run gave the Bricks a 30-6 lead. She scored from nine yards on the game’s last play.
