Warren Central’s defense intercepted three passes, recovered two fumbles and blocked a punt to pound Greenville-Weston 49-7 and remain in first place in Region 2-6A.

The Vikings cashed in on two turnovers and the blocked punt to go up 21-0 by the 10:21 mark in the second quarter. Greenville got its lone score on a 59-yard TD pass three minutes later but it was all Warren Central after that.

The Vikings scored 28 unanswered points to cruise to their biggest margin of victory since a 45-0 blowout of Greenville-Weston in 2006.
