HARLEM, Ga. -- Warren County High quarterback Dondracus Dozier and running back Coby Reynolds -- both seniors - combined for 155 yards rushing to lead the Screaming Devils over the Harlem Bulldogs 25-0 in prep football action last Friday night.
The duo also scored four touchdowns -- Dozier with one and Reynolds with three -- giving him four now for the season. Dozier was the leading ground gainer for the Screaming Devils with 81 yards on 12 carries, while Reynolds rushed for 74 yards on 10 carries. A third rusher, Jabari "Buster" Wilson, finished with 32 yards on five carries.
It marked Warren County's second straight win of the young season. They opened up the season with a big win over neighboring Glascock County.
The Screaming Devils will be back in action this Friday night when they entertain George Walton Academy from Rutledge. It marks the first time these two teams have ever played each other. The game will be played at Albert J. Massey Field on the campus of Warren County High School in Warrenton. Game time is set for 7:30 p.m.
"We're our biggest opponent right now," Warren County head coach Marleau Blount said after the game. "If we can stop making mistakes and become a little more disciplined, we've got a chance to be a pretty good ball team."
In his team's first outing this season against Glascock County's Panthers, penalties cost the Screaming Devils lots of yardage.
Against Harlem's Bulldogs of longtime head coach Jimmie Lewis, things were much improved in that area. Warren County was penalized for a total of 55 yards.
"We've got to cut down on our penalties, because it's taking us from our game plan," coach Blount, now in his second year, said.
Reynolds got the Screaming Devils on the scoreboard by powering his way past two would-be tacklers of Harlem. He ended up scoring his first of three touchdowns in the game on a 32 yard run with 10:17 left in the first quarter. The extra point attempt by Steve Burley failed.
Already leading 6-0 the Bulldogs, Dozier later led the Screaming Devils to their second touchdown of the game. He ran into the end zone from three yards out with just 2:28 remaining in the first half.
At halftime, Warren County led 12-0.
In the second half, Reynolds scored two more times on runs of 4 and 17 yards, respectively, in each the third and fourth quarters. Burley kicked the extra point after the touchdown in the fourth quarter.
Reynolds' score with just .22.8 second left in the third quarter helped sealed Harlem's fate.
Warren County amassed 260 yards on 38 carries in their ground attack, while Dozier completed 2-of-8 passes for 18 yards. Senior receiver Cornelius Pinkston was credited with one reception for 18 yards.
Defensively, the Screaming Devils literally shut down any chances of the Bulldogs moving the football.
The defensive unit held Harlem to just 66 yards total offense -- 33 on the ground and 33 through the air.
