Warren’s Mark Davis is off to the races, scoring a first half touchdown during the Dragons’ non-region victory over the previously unbeaten Corry Beavers Friday at Corry Area High School.
"We were really opportunistic (because of turnovers)," said Warren coach Brad Wright. "But it all started with better play at the line of scrimmage."
Warren had five interceptions, including three from Brad Walters. The defense helped quarterback Austin Jerman and the offense hold a lead through the second quarter. Chris McNeal, Cody McGraw and Walters all picked off Corry quarterback Nate Smith in a span of four and a half minutes during the second quarter, and Warren led 21-6 at halftime.
Jerman threw well out of the pocket all game, first finding Mark Davis deep for a 62-yard score.

Matt Falvo helped Warren take advantage late in the second quarter with a 59-yard catch and run.
Corry moved the ball well, ending with 343 total yards. The Beavers twice cut the lead to 10 in the third quarter, but Warren's offense added two scores of its own. McNeal and Falvo added touchdown runs and Warren led 35-18 through three quarters.
Wortman had 108 rushing yards to go with six catches for 68 yards. He added a 25-yard touchdown run for good measure.
Falvo helped eat up the clock and finished with 16 carries, one catch and 113 total yards.
Jerman was again impressive with 258 yards passing and no interceptions.
It doesn't get any easier next week as Warren host undefeated DuBois Friday at War Memorial Field.
The Dragons ended with 453 total yards, but Wright said there's work to be done.
Wright said the Dragons need to limit penalties and be ready for a physical game when playing their third straight undefeated opponent.
