Devarrus Reynolds rushed for 173 yards and three touchdowns on nine carries last Friday, propelling the Warren County Screaming Devils to a 42-13 win over region opponent Monticello.
Warren County Coach Lee Hutto said his team played an all-around complete game to propel them to a winning record (4-3, 3-1 Region 7A) for the first time this season.
The Devils now own a three-game win streak and have won three of their last four.
"The offensive line played extremely well as did Devarrus Reynolds running the football," Coach Hutto said.
"The defense played well but had some lapses late in the game, which is disappointing."
The Devils scored two touchdowns in the last four minutes of the first quarter behind runs from Tommy Seals and Quadrez Reese to jump out to a 15-0 lead. From there they didn't look back.
A 29-yard touchdown run from Quamaine Walker and a 55-yarder from Reynolds in the second quarter put Warren County up 29-6 at halftime. Monticello's lone first-half touchdown came after a Devils' fumble put the team in good field position.
A Seals interception on defense set up Reynolds' next score. He ran in from the 9-yard line with 7:27 left in the third quarter to extend the lead to 35-6.
Then, late in the fourth, Reynolds broke free for a 73-yard touchdown run to go up 42-6. The Devils' defense couldn't hold Monticello from scoring its second touchdown just seconds later.
Overall, the Devils rushed for 293 yards and passed for 90 behind Seals' 3 of 5 attempts.
Warren County faces the defending single-A state champion Lincoln County Red Devils (6-1, 4-0) at home this week.
The winner will be alone in first place in the region. Coach Hutto said the Devils have not beaten Lincoln County since 1971.
