Warriors off to 3-0 start with wins over Big River and Rosthern
After having the 2nd week of the season off, the Warriors traveled to Big River on Friday Sept. 20th for a night game. The Warriors started the game strong with #17 Bradley Hilkewich scoring on a 50 yard TD run on the opening drive. Kayden Malmgram added the convert for a 8-0 lead, and the Warriors never looked back. The defense held strong in the first half, with #13 Lucas Sosnowski recording 7.5 tackles in the game, and #6 Tyler Skoworodko with 5.5 tackles. Touchdowns by #33 Bryce Blondeau and 2 more by Hilkewich, with all the converts made by Malmgram made the score 32-0 at halftime. The Warriors rolled all their players into the lineup, and scored a few more TDs, but also gave up a few to make the final score 48-20.
Rosthern brought a very young team to play Wakaw on Thursday, Sept. 26th. The Warriors again scored in their first drive, with punishing runs from #14 Yari Kotelko, and a big pass play to #95 Jordan Nahorniak. Kotelko finished off the drive for a TD, and the Warriors were up 6-0. The very next play saw Kotelko break a run up the middle for a 56 yard run, and the score was 14-0 (with the convert from Kayden Malmgram). Malgram added a touchdown of his own before the half was complete, and the Warriors held a 20-0 lead at halftime. In the second half, the Warrior defense continued to play well, stopping the Longhorns offense on every drive. multiple interceptions by #25 Lorrin LeBlanc and #12 Adam Schlosser gave the offense the ball back, and the Warriors capitalized. #9 Chase Torchinski got his first TD of his career or a nice 40yd catch and run, helping the Warriors to a 50-0 win.
