Senior Clayton Denker ran for five touchdowns and 302 yards on 27 carries and David City broke a three-game losing streak, defeating Twin River 42-18 on Friday at home.
Twin River led 6-0 after the first quarter, but David City scored 30 points in the second on three Denker scores and a touchdown by quarterback Dylan Vodicka.
Denker added two more rushing touchdowns after halftime.
"I give credit to our offensive line," David City head coach Robert Evans said. "The offensive line did a nice job executing the play but they still need to fix a few things on their technique."

Defensively, David City made its biggest impact on the downs that matter. The Titans were nearly as effective as the Scouts, with 318 yards of offense. But Twin Rivers also went 2 for 14 on third down and 4 for 12 on fourth.
"The defense did a nice job stopping the run but made some mental errors that extended Twin Rivers drive," Evans said.
With the win, David City improves to 4-3 and will play No. 8 Centennial (4-3) on the road on Friday.
"The team is doing some good things on special teams, offense, and defense but there is room for improvement," Evans said. "We need to stay hungry. You are either growing or dying."
