Burnett, Warnick lead Falkville to 28-6 win over Red Bay

FALKVILLE – The combination of Caden Burnett and Isaiah Warnick led Falkville to a 28-6 win over Red Bay to improve to 4-3 overall and 3-2 in 2A Region 8 play. 

 Burnett connected with Warnick on two first-quarter touchdown passes, the first for 25 yards and the second for 10, to give the Blue Devils a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. 

 Red Bay cut the lead to 14-6 right before halftime with a two-yard run. 

 Falkville extended their lead to 21-6 in the third quarter when Burnett hit Warnick for a 31-yard scoring strike. Their final score came in the fourth quarter when Burnett scored on a one-yard run to make the final score 28-6. 

 Burnett finished 16-of-22 for 240 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. Warnick had seven receptions for 112 yards and three touchdowns. 

 Warnick led the defense with 12 tackles along with three interceptions and a fumble recovery. David Lockhart had 8.5 tackles and a sack, while Malachi Collett added nine tackles. 

 Falkville (4-3, 3-2) steps out of region play to host Addison on Friday. Next week, the Blue Devils will finish region play when they host Tharptown. 

Falkville has positioned itself to secure one of the four playoff spots in Region 8. With a win over Tharptown and a loss by Hatton, the Blue Devils will finish second in the region and host a first-round playoff game. If Hatton wins out, the Blue Devils will finish third and travel in the first round.
