DURHAM, N.C. – Sophomore running back Jela Duncan ran for 48 yards and two touchdowns in the Blue Devils’ intrasquad scrimmage Saturday afternoon at Wallace Wade Stadium.

The Duke running game churned out 201 yards, led 48-yard efforts from Duncan and senior Juwan Thompson, and a 45-yard performance from sophomore Shaquille Powell. Duncan averaged 6.0 yards per rush on eight carries with scores from four and eight yards out, while Thompson averaged 5.3 yards per rush on nine carries. Powell’s six-carry performance included a 29-yard rush that was Duke’s longest of the day.

Redshirt junior quarterback Anthony Boone completed 15-of-19 passes for 89 yards and connected on his final seven throws. Redshirt freshman quarterback Thomas Sirk completed 16-of-21 passes for 180 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. After starting the scrimmage 5-for-10 with two interceptions, Sirk bounced back to hit 11 consecutive passes, including a 68-yard pass to sophomore receiver Johndre Bennett and a 10-yard scoring strike to Thompson.

Bennett finished with a team-high 112 receiving yards and a touchdown on three catches, including the 68-yard catch that set up Duncan’s second touchdown run and a 35-yard touchdown catch from junior quarterback Rob Collins. Tight end Dan Beilinson grabbed three receptions for 29 yards, including a 19-yard catch, while sophomore Max McCaffrey grabbed three receptions for 23 yards.

Defensively, redshirt freshman safety Corbin McCarthy grabbed an interception, forced a fumble and deflected a pass. Redshirt junior defensive end Jordan DeWalt-Ondijo blocked a field goal.

The Blue Devils will continue spring practice over the next three weeks in preparation for the spring football game on Saturday, April 13 at 4 p.m. in Wallace Wade Stadium.
