The No. 6 Falkville Blue Devils beat the Donoho Falcons 30-13 on homecoming to remain perfect on the season.
On a night when Falkvile senior Lyndsey Moore was named homecoming queen, the Blue Devils scored 28 consecutive points after falling behind 7-2 to open the game.
After Hunter Woodall tackled the punter in the end zone for a safety on the Falcons first drive, Falcon quarterback Chris Carr scored on a 29-yard keeper with 9:04 to play in the second quarter. Mitchell Baker added the extra point.
That would be Donoho’s only lead of the game.

Vinson had four catches for 28 yards.
Donoho quarterback Chris Carr answered with a touchdown pass to Kevin Carr with 18 seconds to play in the third period, but neither team would threaten in fourth quarter.
