Fargo Davies plays first football game

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's newest high school has played its first football game.

Davies High lost 50-20 to Fargo Shanley on Tuesday night. But parents and fans say they knew the team would face challenges in its inaugural season.

Parent Bill Critelli says the program has to start somewhere, and it will build as time goes on.

Cindy Benson says seeing her son Matt don the varsity uniform as a freshman was exciting. And she says it's exciting for the players to represent the school.

The physical Davies school won't be ready until next year. Students are attending Fargo South High School this year.
