DANVILLE — The host Danville Blue Devils were good when they needed to be on both sides of the ball — especially when the game was on the line.

In the end, they pulled off a stunning 20-13 win over the visiting Centerburg Trojans in Mid-Buckeye Conference football action on Friday.

Down 13-12 to Centerburg with three minutes to go, Danville got the ball 35 yards from a winning touchdown. The short field came thanks to a scrappy Devils’ defense that pinned back the Trojans and forced them to punt from deep in their own end.

With star running back Heath Buckingham standing on the sidelines after getting hurt in the first half, it didn’t look good for Danville. Then, with a 4th-and-11 at the Centerburg 36, Danville quarterback Marcus Durbin came up huge.
