It was completely satisfying for Volcano Vista – and yet somehow oddly unsatisfying for so many of the rest of us.
Sifting through Friday’s 35-7 victory by the top-ranked Hawks over No. 2 Cleveland, there are some issues to discuss. For me, it starts with this one: For as well as Volcano Vista played – and its opening half of football Friday was the best half I’ve seen from any team in any game this year – there is a bizarre emptiness to it all.
To wit: With the very conspicuous absence of Cleveland starting quarterback Jeff Davison on Friday (he is recovering from a shoulder injury), I would be reluctant to attach too much significance to this final score, for either school.
I’ll repeat here what I said on Twitter on Friday night: Davison’s presence in this game doesn’t change the outcome, in my opinion. Volcano Vista was terrific on both sides of the ball, and oh that defense!
