The FPD Vikings improved their record to 6-3 on Friday with a 42-24 win over winless Warren County.
What things look like on paper, and records, and all of those things dont matter when they put the ball on the tee, FPD head coach Greg Moore said.
The Vikings found that out the hard way to start Fridays game. Warren County recovered a fumble on the Vikings 28-yard-line two plays into the game, and four plays later, Dantavious Allen scampered into the end zone from 3 yards out to give the Devils a 6-0 lead.
The Vikings came back with a vengeance on their next drive, going 73 yards in eight plays and scoring on a 21-yard run by Reggie Gantt. Gantt finished the game with 78 yards rushing and two scores. On the next FPD drive, it took the Vikings only one play to reach the end zone after Daniel Weaver went in from 56 yards out on a sweep.
The second quarter was all FPD as the Vikings scored 21 points on only eight plays. An early gamble in the quarter on a fourth-and-2 paid off as Gantt ran in from 15 yards out for his second touchdown. Kam Hunter closed out the scoring in the half with an interception return for a touchdown and a 35-6 Vikings lead.
The Vikings continued to dominate Warren County in the second half as they held the Screaming Devils scoreless in the third quarter. The Vikings erased all hopes of a Warren County victory with a 17-yard touchdown run from Ryan Lindsey.
