FARGO — Since falling to Bismarck Century in Week 1, Fargo Davies has won five straight games. The Eagles are 5-1 and they will look to continue the successful trend.

The team says they've worked on the little things like pass protection, defensive coverage and seeing guys look in gaps.

"Our O-line is phenomenal ... we have so many options it's really crazy ... I think we have been really progressive in the run game," said Reid Hartness, a Davies junior quarterback. "Last year as a sophomore I wasn't really in a leadership role. We had those seniors — some great leaders — but I think this year it's been more of a leadership role I've had to step into."

Davies head coach Jason Thielges said Hartness has grown into his role as a leader on the team.

"He made some really good runs and threw the ball well against Century and he's built upon that," Thielges said. "He's definitely a nice guy to have, a kid who is (a) 6-foot-3, 205-pound quarterback that can run down hill. Plus he's fast and quick too so, he's a nice weapon to have."

Davies (5-1) will host West Fargo (3-3) at 7 p.m. Thursday.
