WARRENTON, Ga. -- The Warren County Screaming Devils ventured across the Savannah River and into South Carolina where they recorded a 47-24 victory over McCormick last Friday night.
It was the first-ever meeting between the two prep football teams.
Now 3-1, the Screaming Devils of head coach Marleau Blount will entertain the Lincoln County Red Devils at Albert J. Massey Field in Warrenton. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
Warren County blistered McCormick for 32 first-half points -- a touchdown in the first quarter and four more in the second quarter.
It was redemption from the week before when the Screaming Devils lost a 14-6 game at the hands of George Walton Academy -- a private school now playing football in the Georgia High School Association, instead of the Georgia Independent Schools Association.
Senior quarterback Dondracus Dozier had a sensational performance in the game against McCormick, as he accounted for five touchdowns -- four on the offensive side of the ball and a fifth one via an interception when he played on the defensive side.
Dozier completed 8-of-15 passes for a total of 158 yards and threw three touchdown passes, covering distances of 37, 52 and 32 yards.
Warren County's Buster Wilson scored the first touchdown of the game. It came on a two yard run with 7:01 left in the opening quarter of play. Steve Burley kicked the extra point that put the Screaming Devils up 7-0.
Early in the second quarter, McCormick attempted to make a game of it when they managed to get into the end zone, too. Maurice Jefferson scored on a 22 yard run with 9:05 left in the first half. The extra point, which failed, turned out to be the difference between a tied game and a one-point lead for Warren County.
The Screaming Devils later took control of the game, as well as the scoreboard. They immediately reeled off a pair of touchdowns. The first one came on a 39 yard run by senior running back Coby Reynolds, a member of the 2010 Dream Team of The Augusta Chronicle . Burley's extra point failed.
It gave the Screaming Devils a 13-6 lead.
Dozier later linked up with senior wide receiver Cornelius Pinkston on Warren County's next possession -- a 37-yard strike for another touchdown. It came with 3:44 left in the first half. The attempt for a two-point conversion failed.
McCormick later was credited with a safety on a blocked punt that they recovered in the end zone.
Before halftime, the Screaming Devils scored twice more.
Dozier has shown the last two seasons that he can play well on both sides of the football. He demonstrated that again while playing defense against McCormick. He intercepted a pass and ran it back downfield 51 yards for a touchdown with just 1:55 to play in the first half. Burley kicked the extra point.
With just 43 seconds before intermission, Dozier threw his second touchdown pass of the game to Pinkston. It covered a distance of 52 yards. Burley's kick failed.
In the third quarter, Dozier threw another touchdown pass to Pinkston. It covered 32 yards. Then with just six seconds left in the quarter, Dozier broke loose on the longest touchdown run of the game, a 62-yard romp to the end zone. Burley added the extra point.
