If you like offense, then Corry, PA, was the place to be Saturday afternoon; even more so if you’re a Warren Dragons fan. The Dragons piled up 518 yards of offense and 52 points to beat up Corry 52-21.

“We came in here with the attitude that we wanted to jump out early,” said Warren head coach Mark Morelli. “Last week, we struggled early on. Today we came out firing on all cylinders.”

Warren used a monster first half, opening up a 38-8 lead. James Swanson got things going early for the Dragons as he ripped off a 60-yard run on the third play from scrimmage.

Swanson, who rushed for a game-high 179 yards on 18 carriers, added a 14-yard first-quarter touchdown as well.

The Dragons continued to explode as Donovan Fiscus hauled in a 32-yard pass from Landon Douvlos as Warren went ahead 24-0 after a quarter.

 

“We couldn’t have asked for a better start,” said Morelli. “With the teams in our region, we hadn’t been doing that. It was important for us today. That is a tribute to our kids and their preparation.”

Late in the first half, Fiscus and Douvlos hooked up again on a 16-yard touchdown pass.

Corry finally got their offense going as Landen Weis hauled in a 58-yard bomb from Nathan Lesher, putting the Beavers on the board.

“We didn’t play like ourselves today,” said Corry head coach Jeff Goodwill. “We had guys out of position all game long. We fell behind early and couldn’t get it back.

Warren then quickly went 87 yards to close the half as Micah Passmore scored from two yards out. Passmore’s 71-yard reception was the big play of the drive.

Corry took the football and scored on a 1-yard run to begin the second half. Lesher threw for 103 yards and added ten yards rushing. Weis rushed for 103 yards for the Beavers.

“We had some bright spots offensively, but we couldn’t stop them when we needed to,” said Goodwill.

Warren then enacted the mercy rule as Tommy Nyquist scored from four yards, and Alex Borger caught a 35-yard touchdown from Douvlos.

“We had a lot of contributors today,” said Morelli. “Guys like Sam Harvey and Nyquist are only freshmen. We have great players to build around in the future. Our seniors showed that leadership and played great today as well.”

Corry closed the scoring on Weis’s 9-yard run.

 

Nyquist ran for 67 yards on nine carries, while Douvlos completed 6-of-8 passes for 202 yards and three touchdowns. Warren improves to 3-3 on the season, while Corry dropped to 2-5.

“You have to look at the positives,” said Goodwill. “It’s hard right now, but we’ll look at the film and get ready for next week.”
