The Dillon Christian School Warriors traveled to Rembert in Sumter County Friday night for a non-region game with the Generals of Thomas Sumter Academy.
The Generals are a class AA school but they were no match for the Warriors getting blown out 47-0.
The Warriors got off to a slow start not scoring until late in the first quarter with quarterback Cameron Sweat hitting Adam Norman with a 45-yard touchdown pass. Josh Brown added the point after kick with 1:55 left in the first quarter with the quarter ending with this score.
Midway through the second quarter Sweat finished a Warrior drive with a nine-yard touchdown run; Brown’s point-after kick put the Warriors up 14-0 with 6:24 left in the second quarter. The first half of play would end with this score.
The Generals bobbled the kickoff to start the third quarter, and the charging Warriors recovered the ball on the Generals 40-yard line. The drive was finished with Sweat hitting Norman with a 27-yard touchdown pass. Brown’s point-after kick increased the Warrior lead to 21-0 with 9:20 left in the third quarter. With 6:48 left in the third quarter Warrior linebacker Cooper Lane recovered a fumble by the Generals’ punter to give the Warriors the ball on the Generals 33-yard line. On first down Sweat hit receiver Hayden Hickman with a 33-yard touchdown pass. The point-after was off to the left holding the Warrior lead to 27-0 with 6:40 left in the third quarter. On the Generals’ next offensive possession, Warrior safety Adam Norman crossed in front of the Generals receiver and picked off the pass and then raced 63 yards for the touchdown. Brown’s point-after kick put the Warriors lead at 34-0 with 5:18 left in the third quarter. The clock was run without stoppage for the remainder of the game. The third quarter would end with 34-0 Warrior lead.
Going against the fast moving clock Colby Thorndyke finished a short drive with a three-yard touchdown run. Brown booted the Warriors to a 41-0 lead with about 5 minutes left in the fourth quarter. The Warrior offense would get the ball one more time with Cade Williams taking the last three hand-offs from quarterback Trent Johnson finding the goal line from 23 yards out with the clock hitting zero. The Warriors did not attempt the final point after taking the 47-0 win on the road.
Josh Brown was 5 of 6 in extra points, and it was noted on his first 6 of 8 kickoffs that he pooch kicked but on his last two attempts he was allowed to put his foot into the ball and sent both kicks sailing through the end zone.
