A matchup between two former district foes produced a familiar outcome.

Warren Central running back Tevon Boards dazzled with 239 rushing yards and three touchdowns, helping the Dragons remain unbeaten against Greenwood this decade.

"We challenged our guys to play for four quarters tonight," said Warren Central head coach Bill Cox. "Our ability to run the ball was good to us tonight."

Boards' biggest run came in the third quarter when he sprinted 45 yards for a touchdown that put Warren Central up 21-3.

"They can score from anywhere on the field with the backs they have," said Greenwood head coach Mark Nelson.

The first and longest touchdown run from Boards occured right after a Greenwood turnover in the first quarter when he sprung free on a 74 yard run to the endzone for the game's first score.

"He's a big playmaker," said Warren Central head coach Bill Cox.
"The last couple of games he's picked it up a notch."

Tabarus Mitchell added a nine yard touchdown run in the second quarter to help the Dragons to a 14-3 advantage at halftime.

For Greenwood a struggling offense and four turnovers buried its chances of competing with the Dragons.

"I thought our defense kept us in it in the game 14-3 at the half," said Nelson. "Our offense didn't move the ball early and our defense was on the field an aweful long time."

The Gators drove the ball to the Warren Central 7-yard line late in the second quarter but had to settle for a Cody Jackson field goal.

Greenwood's first giveway was early in the first quarter at Warren Central's 21-yard line and another occured in the third quarter inside the redozone during a crucial drive with the Gators trailing 21-3.

"We turned the ball over at bad times," said Nelson. "Against this team you have to sustain drives and run clock."

Warren Central (3-4) will host Grayson County next Friday while Greenwood (4-4) will host Central Hardin.
