Warren Offense Finds Its Grove, Runs Rampant on River Pilots< < Back to
The game plan for the Warren Warriors never wavered. Get the ball to Jason Williams early and often.
And Williams made every touch count.
Williams led a Warren offense that scored a touchdown on all six of its first half possessions as the Warriors beat the River Pilots 54-24.
It was Williams who got the ball rolling. He got the ball on each of the Warriors first four plays, breaking tackles and fighting for extra yards as he powered his way into the end zone to give Warren a 7-0 just over two minutes into the game.
River had success offensively. Quarterback Kabel Isaly had a beautiful deep ball to Brody Lollathin to set up the Pilots’ first touchdown. In the second quarter, he hit another long connection, this one to River Thompson, that went for six points.
But the Warriors offense was just too much. Quarterback Trent Taylor capitalized off of the attention Williams was getting to get big gains through the air. Brodie Tait was one of his favorite targets, and Dennis Pettey hauled in a long touchdown pass.
Running back Taylor Bowers had success on the ground as well, finding paydirt on one run. Taylor tallied two touchdowns on the ground on quarterback sneaks set up by long runs from Bowers and Williams.
The Warriors (2-2) will try to keep their momentum next week in a game against the undefeated Fort Frye Cadets. The Pilots (2-2) look to bounce back against Barnesville.
