Warriors run their way to second victory

NEW MARKET — The fact Danville kicked and made an extra point to conclude its 53-20 win over Southmont on Friday night showed just how in the zone the Warriors were.

For the first time all season, the Warriors decided not to go for a two-point conversion in a game they controlled late, scoring 33 unanswered points to leave with their second Sagamore Conference win of the season.

The Warriors (2-5, 2-3) did it mostly on the ground. Danville quarterback Christian Schubert had 149 yards on 10 carries and two touchdowns, but it was his running back who stole the show.

Autry Pickens finished with 233 yards on 17 carries and scored five rushing touchdowns. His TDs weren’t easy either, as he went for 39, 17, 40, 28 and 46 yards, respectively, for each score.

Danville coach Russ Sumner said working with the offensive line was a point of emphasis in practice.

“We’ve been really disappointed how our offensive line has played the majority of the year,” Sumner said. “We made a couple adjustments, but you got to hand it to the kids there.”

Danville went up 14-0 in less than four minutes to start the game. Schubert had two rushes for 65 yards on the first drive, including a 60-yard TD to get the Warriors on the board.

On the second play of their second drive, Schubert found Tanner Hubbard for an 76-yard touchdown.

Southmont (3-4, 2-3) responded as Zach Richardson rushed in for a 7-yard score to make it 14-6, but Pickens followed with his first TD to cap a three-play, 45-yard drive.

The first quarter ended as Southmont was threatening in the red zone. On the first play of the second quarter, Nathaniel Farabee scored from two yards out to make it 20-12.

Yet, the ensuing two-point conversion would change the outcome of the game. As the Mounties failed to convert, quarterback Devon Burton went down and stayed down.Burton had to be put on the stretcher, and an ambulance would take him away.
