The Warriors (0-7) continued to show their improvement, especially during the game against the Stony Point Tigers (4-3). Even though the Warriors lost 10-0 in the end, they still were able to play strong.

The game started well for the Warriors, with a fumble recovery by Riley Garringer ‘16 early in the first quarter. Ethan Twining ‘17 made a great play, blocking a pass, and Beau Brown ‘17 managed to break through the strong Stony Point offensive line, sacking the quarterback. Garrett Aylor ‘18 recovered yet another fumble, getting the team pumped. Back on the offensive side of things, Te’shon McGinnis ‘17 made many strong runs, breaking through the defense. Although the half ended with a Tiger touchdown, the Warriors showed just how strong they could be.

The team had the chance to take a break during halftime, during which the Warrior Band and SunDancers performed. After the SunDancers performed to “Rather Be,” the band played the last three parts of its show “Let Me Fall.”

The second half started out with a field goal from the Tigers, but the Warriors did not let this slow them down. Prince Ugwu ‘18 made several great runs and Aylor made many more great plays on defense. As the Tigers inched forward into the endzone, the Warrior defense put a stop to that as well, which resulted in a Tiger turnover. On offense, Will Jennings ‘18 caught many great passes from Jack Swensen ‘16, gaining the Warriors much yardage. Although they were not able to score at the end of the game, they had shown much improvement.

The Warriors will next play the Pflugerville Panthers on Oct. 23 at 7:00 p.m. at Kuempel Stadium.
