Devils Fall to Putnam in Season Opener

Turnovers plagued the Warren County Screaming Devils in their opening game of the 2014 season against the Eagles of Putnam County. While the Devils lost by the score of 34-13, there were signs of improvement over last season.

Putnam County struck first on a 45 yard run by Mike Hill with 7:23 to go in the 1st quarter. The extra  point was good and the first quarter ended with the Devils only down by one score.

The Eagles struck again with 7:25 to go in the 2nd quarter on an 11 yard run by Xzavious Davis. Jared Cornado kicked the extra point to give Putnam County a 14 point lead. The Devils would quickly strike back however. 20 seconds later, Timothy Seals broke lose and scored on a 73 yard run and then tacked on the extra point for the Devils first score of the game. The teams went to the locker room with Putnam County holding onto a one touchdown lead by the score of 14-7.

The Eagles widened their lead with the only score of the third quarter on a 35 yard run by Mike Hill. The extra point was no good and the third quarter ended with the Eagles up by the score of 20-7.

Warren County would score again in the fourth quarter on a 12 yard run by Jermaine Berry. The extra point attempt by Seals was blocked. Putnam County sandwiched the Devils lone score in the 4th quarter with two scores of their own, leading to the final score of 34-13.

While the Devils didn't come away with a win, it was the best offensive and defensive performance for the Devils in some time. Warren County picked up 12 first downs, 145 yards rushing, and 22 yards through the air. Timothy Seals led the attack on the ground for the Devils with 136 yards on 11 carries. Devocea Lott had 7 carries for 20 yards, and Davtavious Allen had 18 yards on 5 carries. Jermaine Berry was 2 for 7 through the air with 2 interceptions. Berry had a 14 yard completion to Anquavious Hill and an 8 yard completion to Seals.

2nd year head coach, Cherard Freeman, praised the effort of his team. "Cardrez Slocumb had a great game, probably one of the best since he has been playing varsity. Timothy Seals ran the ball hard and Jermaine Berry put us in the right situation," stated Freeman. Freeman went on to say, "Coach Ellis had a great offensive game plan. We just had too many turnovers to overcome. We got one leg over the wall and just have to find away to get the other leg over."

Devils open 2012 with comeback win over Panthers

Warren County brought a perfect 16-0 record into Friday night's contest against the Glascock County Panthers.  It was a game that most people thought that the Screaming Devils should win easily.  Taking a closer look however, lead many close to the program to think otherwise.  Several key starters for Warren County were unavailable to play, leaving a team that lost much to graduation last year struggling to find leaders among a very young and inexperienced team of players.

Warren County's inability to get anything going offensively gave the Panthers excellent field position for most of the first half.  The Panthers capitalized early with a 17 yard run by Levi Key for the first score of the game with 2:38 to go in the first quarter.  A Warren County turnover allowed Glascock to extend their lead when Joe Brown scored on a four yard run to give the Panthers a 12-0 lead.  The lead marked the largest lead ever for Glascock over the Screaming Devils.

With Warren County down 12-0 and his offense struggling, quarterback Damien Clark literally put his team on his back and carried them down the field.  That drive included a 44 yard run setting up a touchdown run by Richard Wilburn.  It looked as though the second quarter would end with the Panthers holding a 12 point lead until Anquavious Hill returned a kickoff 74 yards to narrow the score to 20-14 with 1:48 to go in the half.

Warren County caught another break just 65 seconds later when when defensive end, Jeremy Norris, stripped the ball loose from a Panther running back and recovered the fumble on the Warren County 38 yard line. That began a 62 yard Warren County drive that included a 38 yard pass completion to freshman Jermaine Berry with only 7.4 seconds left to go in the half.  After a Warren County time-out, Richard Wilburn ran the ball into the end zone to tie the game 20-20 at the end of the first half.

The second half was a defensive battle for both teams.  Neither offense was able to move the ball effectively for much of the second half.  Warren County finally took the lead for the first time in the game when Wilburn connected with Antron Gilbert for a 51 yard touchdown pass 2:49 to go in the 4th quarter.  A depleted Warren County defense held on for the win in one of the closest battles between the two teams since 1974.

Damien Clark led the rushing attack for the Devils with 94 yards with one TD on 15 carries.  Richard Wilburn carried the ball 9 times for a total of 41 yards and one TD.  Wilburn also went 3-8 in the passing department, accumulating 107 yards through the air.  Wilburn connected with Jermaine Berry for 38 yards, Antron Gilbert for 51 yards, and Devocee Lott for 19 yards.

Warren County will have two weeks to rest their team and to hopefully return to full strength before taking on the Tigers of Washington-Wilkes.
