LAKELAND, FL - (Sat 2 Sep 2017) Dylan Beasley threw five touchdown passes and the Lindsey Wilson defense did not yield a touchdown as the eighth-ranked Blue Raiders beat host Warner (FL) 47-3 on Saturday at Viking Stadium.
The Blue Raiders ended the game with four takeaways, including a pick-six by Joe Lewis to give the Lindsey Wilson defense its second touchdown in as many games this season.
The Lindsey Wilson offense was nearly flawless, tallying 403 yards of total offense without committing a turnover.
Lindsey Wilson (2-0) scored on four of its six first-half possessions to seize a 28-3 lead at the break.
Following the first Warner (0-2) miscue, Beasley hit Allen Cooks for a 25-yard touchdown to put Lindsey Wilson up 7-0.
Warner -- who is receiving votes in the NAIA preseason poll -- dented the scoreboard for what would be the only time in the game midway through the first quarter. Geness Kennedy-May connected on a 35-yard field goal to cut the deficit to 7-3.
It was all Lindsey Wilson the remainder of the game.
Beasley -- who finished 17-of-23 for 299 yards -- found Jayven Jones out the backfield for a 39-yard catch-and-run touchdown. Zak Mizell added a two-point conversion on a keeper to give Lindsey Wilson a 15-3 lead with just over three minutes remaining in the first quarter.
Beasley added touchdown tosses to Mikey Davis and Cam Wyche in the second quarter to increase the lead. Davis hauled in a 25-yard pass while Wyche grabbed a 51-yard bomb just before the half to give the Blue Raiders the 25-point lead at intermission.
The Blue Raiders did not let up in the second half.
Warner fumbled the kickoff to open the third quarter. Quintin Brown popped the ball loose and the Blue Raiders recovered on the Royals' 25-yard line to give the offense great field position.
Beasley and Cooks took advantage, connecting on a second touchdown in the game for the 34-3 lead. Lewis made it 40-3 to all but secure the win as he picked off a screen pass and raced 60 yards for his first career score.
Lindsey Wilson closed the scoring late in the fourth quarter as Payton Veraldi tossed a three-yard pass to TiCorion Williams for the 47-3 lead.
The Lindsey Wilson defense held the Royals out of the endzone in the final minute of the game to keep its streak of not allowing a touchdown this season.
Trent Mueller led the Blue Raiders with 14 tackles and an interception. Lewis added five tackles to his pick while C.J. Dickerson contributed five tackles, including a sack.
Cooks finished with four catches for 89 yards and the two scores. He was one of 12 different players to end with at least one reception in the game.
