The Warriors senior football team is 4-0 so far this season.
The Warriors first game was in Ahtahkakoop. This is their 3rd year in the league, but the more experienced Warriors dominated the game on their way to a 57-7 victory.
The second game was also on the road in Shellbrook. The Warriors defense played their best game in recent memory, pinning the Aardark offense deep on the first 2 possessions, allowing the offense to score at will. As the game progressed, the Shellbrook team could not cover the deep pass, and the Warriors scored 5 touchdowns on passes over 40 yards, on their way to a 58-16 victory.
The home opener proved to be the Warriors toughest game of the season yet, hosting Hague. The Hague Panthers have traditionally had a strong team, and this year is no different. In the first half the defense played well, but still allowed Hague to score 3 touchdowns, while the Warrior offense got into the end zone once. The Warriors dug deep in the second half, tying the game at 22 with about 3 minutes left in the game. Hague scored next on an interception, taking the lead back, but the Warriors didn't give up, scoring a touchdown and convert with under 2 min remaining to go up 30-28. The defense held again, not letting the Panthers score, and the Warriors ran out the clock for the victory.
The Warriors hosted Big RIver Thursday, Oct. 12th in their annual night game. The Warriors got off to a strong start, scoring on their first 2 possessions. Big River started to move the ball on the Warrior defense, but couldn't break through all the way to score a touchdown. The Warrior offence also had a bit of alull with the score remaining 22-0 for quite a while. The Warriors defense caused a few fumbles in the 2nd quarter, and capitalized with touchdowns. Big RIver also capped off a drive with a touchdown, bringing the score to 44-6 at halftime. The second half was played in straight time, and both teams rolled younger players into the lineup. It was still an exciting game to watch with some hard hits, a few turnovers, and a few more touchdowns by the Warrior offence. Final score, Warriors 56, Big River 6.
The Warriors next game is in Rosthern on Oct. 11th. That will also be a night game with a junior exhibition before the game.
