The Screaming Devils of Warren County High School ran their record to 2-0 with a victory over the Harlem Bulldogs Friday night by the score of 40-6. Warren County continued to work on perfecting their spread offense as five different players found the end zone for the Devils.
It was a frustrating early going for the Devils as a number of penalties stalled the offense for Warren County. The Devils were penalized 13 times for 120 yards with the majority of those penalties coming in the first half.
Warren County struck first when Jabari Wilson found the end zone and after the failed extra point, Warren held a 6-0 lead. Mason McDaniel would tie the game 6-6 for the Bulldogs on a run of his own. The Devils would score once more in the first half. After several penalties drove Warren County back from a first and 10 from the Bulldog 14, Wilson completed a 26-yard pass to Ed'Ricus Williams for a touchdown. The first-half scoring would end there and Warren County took a narrow 12-6 lead into the half.
Warren County's offense exploded for 28 points in the second half. Damien Clarke, Devarius Davis, Jacquez Menchaca and Wilson contributed to the scoring for the Devils. The fourth quarter was played mostly by the Warren County junior varsity under a running clock as the Devils held a 40-6 lead at the end of the third quarter.
Warren County rushed for 325 yards for the game and was led by Wilson for the second week in a row. Wilson rushed for 154 yards on nine carries and was 1-1 in the passing department for 26 yards through the air. Davis carried the ball eight times for 66 yards and one touchdown. Jacquez Menchaca also scored a touchdown on two carries for 43 yards.
Warren County hits the road this week to take on George Walton Academy in Monro. The Devils came up short against George Walton last year by the score of 14-6. Coach Don Williams Bulldogs are 1-0 after a 28-0 victory over the Pinecrest Academy Paladins, followed by an off week.
