In the win over Geraldine, senior quarterback Tanner Young connected with senior receiver Logan Pierce on a 5-yard slant pattern for the scrimmage's only touchdown. The play capped a 10-play, 80-yard drive. Junior kicker Eric Burgess added the extra point.
The Warriors followed that half of action up with two touchdowns against Sardis. The first was another scoring connection from Young to Pierce. This one was from seven yards away, and it put the Warriors up 7-0.
Warrior coach Tripp Curry said the speed of the game "has slowed down so much" for Young.
"I think he's going to have a very good year," said Curry, who also noted Young completed 90-percent of his passes. "We had some guys in Jacob Whitmire and Wade Griffith make some big catches for us, and that opened things up for Logan. I thought our offensive line (Andrew Johnson, Dalton Nabors, Jacob Green, Brad Minor and Chase May) played wonderful. They really controlled the line of scrimmage against two good football teams."
Warrior senior running back D.J. McAllister scored Cherokee County's final touchdown on a 2-yard run.
Curry also praised the Warrior defense for holding both Geraldine and Sardis scoreless.
"Geraldine runs the Wing-T, and we hadn't prepared for that all week," Curry said. "I thought out guys did well defending it. They moved the ball on us, but we stopped them from scoring."
The Warriors open the 2012 regular season next Friday at Class 3A, No. 3 Piedmont.
"The one thing we've got to be is very consistent," Curry said. "(Thursday's scrimmage) was the best I've seen us play in about two years. If we're consistent, then maybe we can play with Piedmont."
