There was no big party or celebration Saturday when the Amarillo Venom clinched the Lone Star Football League regular season title.
As far as the Venom are concerned, there are still two more games to play. Amarillo finished off the LSFL regular season with a 70-43 win over the West Texas Roughnecks before an estimated crowd of 3,800 at Cal Farley Coliseum - earning the top seed and a home game in the four-team league playoffs.
The Venom wasted little time against WT, scoring on their first seven possessions and never trailing.
"The main thing was we wanted to start strong against their defense. We had been watching film all week, what they did," said Venom quarterback Nate Davis, a Bellaire grad. "We wanted to attack their weakness, and we did that."
Amarillo had a comfortable 49-29 lead at halftime, and the Venom cushion was never seriously threatened in the second half.
Davis, who joined the Venom when they had a 2-3 record, was an impressive 25-of-35 passing for 345 yards and nine touchdowns.
"The main thing in the second half is we came out and turned the ball over making dumb decisions. I just got to look at the film and make my corrections," Davis said.
Davis and Amarillo wide receiver Doug Williams, an Oklahoma Panhandle State product, found a rhythm, as Williams had seven catches for 98 yards and four touchdowns.
Williams was primarily effective in the second half, scoring three touchdowns.
Williams even had a pair of touchdown catches called back in the second half because of a penalty, but still managed to find the end zone on one possession two plays later.
"We're connecting. The chemistry is real good now with Nate the last six games or so," Williams said.
The Venom's opponent will be determined Sunday or Monday. The LSFL championship game is scheduled for July 21 in San Angelo.
Davis agreed that Amarillo's upcoming playoff opponent is irrelevant.
"We're all trying for the same goal, and we're going to keep on going," Davis said.
"I don't care who we play. It is all about us."
