9:26: It’s a final at Warren Central. The Warriors win big, 63-21. Stay with IndyStar for more coverage of this game and more.

9:16: Typed these words a lot tonight: Touchdown Warren Central. It’s now 63-21 Warren Central. Second straight week the Warriors have put up 60 points.

9:12: It’s another INT for Dijon Anderson, his second of the game. Warren Central now looking to run out the clock and start getting read for Carmel next week.

9:06: That was the first time a Warren Central drive didn’t end in a touchdown.

9:05: Warren Central reserves in now.

9:01: Martell Williams uses his excellent speed to slip around the far end of the field to score a long touchdown for Lawrence North. It’s now 56-21 Warren Central. So much speed on this field tonight.

8:59: The third quarter comes to an end, as Warren Central takes a 56-14 lead into the final period.

8:53: For those downtrodden Lawrence North fans still watching this game, you can take pleasure in watching the incredibly talented Elijah Smith. The guy has become one of my favorite backs to watch this season. Great mix of power and quickness.

8:50: Touchdown Warren Central. It’s Jason Holland again. He bursts through the hole and goes untouched about 50 yards into the end zone. It’s 56-14 with 4:09 left in the third quarter.

8:50: Great INT by Dijon Anderson. He makes a diving catch that he popped up to himself. Warren Central is absolutely running away with this one.

8:44: Touchdown Warren Central. Jason Holland punches in a 6-yard touchdown to cap a 90-yard drive. It’s 49-14 Warriors with 5:47 left in the third quarter.

8:40: After forcing a Wildcats punt to start the half, the Warriors are on the move behind Tristen Tonte and David Bell.

8:13: It’s halftime, as the Warriors go into the break leading 42-14. They’ve scored TDs on all five offensive possessions and one TD on defense.

8:09: David Bell touchdown! The Warriors are scoring at will. It’s a 57-yard pass from Summeier in the rain with less than one minute remaining in the half. 42-14 now.

8:00: Oh my! What a turn of events. Lawrence North looked poised to plunge into the end zone, but instead the Warriors’ Anthony Maclin picked up a fumble and returned in 99 yards for a touchdown. It’s 35-14 Warren Central now. 2:09 left in the first half.

7:57: Elijah Smith is such a nifty runner for a guy his size. He can bowl you over, but if you’re not careful, he can make you miss, too.

7:43: And after 42 combined points, the first quarter is over. So. Much. Offense.

7:40: Touchdown Tonte! This was no chip shot either; the bruiser takes it to the house from 76 yards away. 28-14 Warren Central. The Warriors have scored touchdowns all four of their drives.

7:39: David Bell: So, so fast. He just outran Summeier’s very strong arm. Hard to believe he’s only a sophomore.

7:36: Elijah Smith scampers in from six yards out, and the Wildcats trim the Warriors’ lead to 21-14. Would you believe we’re still in the first quarter?

7:27: Touchdown Tristen Tonte! He lines up in the QB spot in the wildcat and takes it in from a few yards out. It’s 21-7 Warriors late in the first quarter.

7:23: Bell. Tate. Anderson Tonte. Summeier has so many weapons with which to dismantle opposing defenses.

7:18: What a play-call by the Wildcats coaching staff! An end-around turned flea-flicker results in a 35-yard touchdown pass from Hamersly to Fisher-Tunnell. It’s 14-7 Warren Central midway through the first quarter.

7:14: Nice play by Jackson Hamersly to tuck and run for the first down for the Wildcats. It’s too early to say the Wildcats have to score here, but with the way the Warriors offense is playing, it’d be big if they did.

7:08: Dean Tate again! It’s 14-0, as he runs right past the Lawrence North defense after a quick pass from Summeirer. The craziest part: Only a little bit more than two minutes have gone by in this game.

7:04: Warren Central wastes no time in seizing the lead. Zach Summeier hits Dean Tate for a long touchdown and goes up 7-0.
