Streak comes to an end with Warren County win
By Brian Bowden

The football team at Warren County High School hasn't had the taste of victory in 20 straight games. Their second year head coach, Cherard Freeman, hasn't had that same taste in his 10 games in charge at WCHS. That all changed Friday night when the Screamin' Devils (1-1) battled out their home opener slugfest against the Glascock County Panthers (0-2) and won, 50-34. And Freeman finally got that ice water bath he so desperately wanted. "We had a great offensive game plan. They gave us some things and we took advantage of it," said Freeman. "My guys left here with confidence. They left knowing we can win a ball game."
Sophomore running back Timothy Seals and junior running back Devocea Lott combined for six touchdowns. "Those are our play makers," said Freeman. "They played good ball." Seals rushed for 118 yards combined with three touchdowns while Lott had three himself, including an 88-yard kickoff return to close out the first half at 24 apiece for each team. "Every guy got on their block [for that return] like they're supposed to," said Freeman. "It just opened up for him."
While the game went back and forth, score-wise, the first half, it was a different story in the second. "They felt good going into halftime tied up," said Freeman. "We cut back on penalties in the second half too." Warren County put up 14 unanswered points in the third quarter followed by 12 in the fourth. Glascock County put up 12 points near the end of the fourth when the Screamin' Devils put in some of their younger players.
