Vikings win a thriller Kourey Davis-Chase Ladd connection goes for four TDs in victory

Published 1:12 am Saturday, October 1, 2011

Kourey Davis and Chase Ladd made homecoming a Friday night to remember for Warren Central.

Davis caught five passes for 216 yards and four touchdowns and Ladd added another TD toss, a 28-yard screen pass to Given Breckenridge, to give the Vikings their first victory of the season, 35-34, over Greenville-Weston.

None of them were bigger in the fourth quarter with the Vikings down 34-28. Andrew King recovered a Greenville-Weston fumbled snap on the WC 41-yard line. Behind the arm of Ladd and the legs of Breckenridge, the Vikings methodically drove down the field.

The biggest play was to Patrick Varnado, who dropped four passes last week in a loss to Northwest Rankin. Ladd hit him for a 20-yard connection, setting up first and goal at the Greenville 10-yard line.

On the next play, Ladd hit Davis on a 10-yard fade route in the back corner of the end zone for the tying score and Devon Bell’s perfect PAT gave WC the lead.

On the final Hornet series, Davis finished off the victory with a leaping interception of Leonard Stevenson.

Early in the game, it looked like the Vikings (1-5, 1-1) were headed to an easy victory.
