ATWATER -- Jarrell Davis didn't know if he would be able to play.
The Buhach Colony star spent most of the week icing his left ankle after spraining it in a win against Enochs.
"I didn't really practice the whole week," Davis said. "A lot of icing and physical therapy."
Well, it worked.
Never miss a local story.
Davis put on a show Saturday night, rushing for 234 yards and three touchdowns on just 11 carries as Buhach Colony won a 46-36 shootout against Christian Brothers of Sacramento at Falcon Field.
"He was questionable all week. He had to go slow at practice," said BC coach Kevin Swartwood, whose team improved to 2-0. "He changes that Fly Sweep when he's in there. He really makes it go.
"Without him, we would probably chug along. We wouldn't break those long runs without him."
Davis broke free for touchdown runs of 15, 55 and 34 yards. He also had runs of 49 and 71 yards that helped set up touchdown runs for teammate Dallon Muse.
"I thought that was our best game from our O-Line," Davis said. "I told each one of our offensive linemen if they make their blocks and do their job, we'll score touchdowns."
Davis and Muse took turns slicing up Christian Brothers' defense.
Muse finished with 187 yards on 18 carries and also scored three touchdowns.
"Our offensive line did an incredible job," Muse said. "There were so many holes tonight. They just pushed forward. All my yards were because of them."
Even with BC's offense running wild and lighting up the scoreboard, Christian Brothers didn't go away.
Aaron Terrell Byrd did his best to keep CB within striking distance.
Byrd, who started the game with a 76-yard touchdown run, scored on a 2-yard run and then returned a punt 70 yards for a score that turned a 35-14 deficit to just 38-28.
It was deja vu for Buhach Colony, who jumped out to a 17-0 lead against Enochs last week only to hold on for a 20-18 victory.
However, the defense came up big late. A bad snap resulted in a safety when the ball rolled out of the end zone to extend BC's lead to 37-28.
Davis then broke free on a sweep for a 34-yard touchdown on Buhach Colony's ensuing possession.
Stetson Barton then intercepted a pass for Buhach Colony that eventually set up a 22-yard field goal by Tanner Gleason that put the game away at 46-28.
"It was kind of like last week," Swartwood said. "They score, then get the punt return and then it's like, 'Are you kidding me?'
"But our defense came up with a safety and an interception, and our offense was rolling tonight."
