The Warrior junior varsity football team shut out Cumberland County 42-0 Thursday in Crossville.
The game was originally scheduled to be a freshman game played the first of the season, but weather postponed the contest. In order to have enough players to make up the game, Cumberland County wanted to turn the game into a junior varsity contest. The Warriors obliged and dominated the contest.
Two freshman running backs, Devon Davidson and Kayne Tollison, took advantage of a solid performance by their linemen as they combined for six touchdowns and 318 yards rushing. Davidson carried the ball 19 times accumulating 206 yards on the way to three touchdowns. Tollison added three more touchdowns and 112 yards on seven carries.
One touchdown would have been enough to do the trick as the WCHS defense dominated the Jet offense. CCHS picked up only three first downs in the contest and one of those was due to a pass interference penalty. The solid play of the defense allowed the offense lots of room to work when they got the ball back each time.
WCHS put points on the board on their first series of the contest. The eight-play drive ended with a two yard scoring run by Davidson, who had runs of 34 and 24 yards on the drive. The two-point conversion was stopped short.
The Warrior defense forced a punt on the first Crossville series. The Cumberland County offense got the ball back when they intercepted a Cole Bohannon pass and returned it to the WCHS 34. That would not slow down the defense any at all. On fourth down, a pass break up by Davidson forced the Jets to turn the ball over to the Warriors at the 30 as the defense surrendered only four yards on the series.
The Warriors once again put together a scoring drive. This 70-yard drive took 10 plays to cover the ground between there and pay dirt. This time, Tollison scored from eight yards out after the touchdown was set up by a 10-yard completion from Bohannon to Tyler Stoglin. Davidson had a 23-yard run on the drive while Tollison had a 14-yard carry. The two-point conversion pass from Bohannon to Hampton Cunningham was successful giving the Warriors a 14-0 lead at the half.
WCHS forced a Cumberland County punt after three plays to open the second half. After the punt, the Warriors took over at their own 39-yard line, but two plays were all it took to get back into the end zone and the first was an incomplete pass. Tollison took care of all 62 yards on one carry. The two-point conversion pass was good putting WCHS on top 22-0.
The Warriors were far from done though. Zach Hampshire intercepted a Jet pass on the first play from scrimmage on the ensuing drive. He returned the ball down to the nine-yard line and got five yards tacked on for a horse collar tackle. Tollison took the ball in from there. The two-point conversion was stopped short, but WCHS led 28-0.
Cumberland County had their best drive picking up two first downs on their next possession. The initial first down was on a pass interference penalty. After three incomplete passes, they completed a 21-yard pass for their second first down of the series down to the 19-yard line. The drive stalled from there and the Warriors took over.
WCHS answered with another drive. Seven plays are all it took to cover the 81 yards to the end zone. Davidson scored from 21 yards out to run the lead to 34-0.
The Warrior defense forced the Jets to turn the ball over on downs on their next series. WCHS took over at the CCHS 38 and scored three plays later. Davidson opened with a 13 yard run. Stoglin added seven yards before Davidson scored from 18 yards out. Dustin Brock added the two-point conversion for the final score of 42-0.
