Coming off a 1-0 win against the McNeil Mavericks, the Warriors faced off with the Stony Point Tigers on Friday, March 3, and managed to snag a win of 2-0.

From the kickoff, both teams were playing a physical game. The Warriors and the Tigers maintained an even possession of the ball and worked to get the ball through each other’s defense. Although the midfielders of each team worked tirelessly to create goal-scoring opportunities, both the Warriors and the Tigers failed to get their shots past the goalkeeper and into the back of the net. But with 1:30 left on the clock, the Warriors pushed forward and striker Valentin Lobos ‘26 received a pass from the right wing and took a shot, scoring a goal in the upper left corner. 

As the clock ticked on, the Tigers tried vigorously to tie up the score, but the Warrior’s defensive line shut down all attempts. The first half came to a close with the Warriors in the lead with a score of 1-0. 

Coming into the second half, the Warriors were eager to score another goal and clinch a win going into their next district game, and the Tigers were anxious to tie up the game and possibly pull in the lead. The pressure was on for both teams to score a goal and protect their respective goals.

As the second half progressed and started coming to a close, both teams started getting antsy, and the game became more physical with a couple of penalties against both teams. Anxious for another goal, a Tigers’ defender fouled a Warrior midfielder near the goal, earning the Warriors a free kick. Taking the opportunity, the Warriors made a strategic kick to an open midfielder at the top of the box, and Beck Brenneman ‘26 nailed it in the back of the net.

With 6:15 left on the clock, the Tigers attempted to get a shot on goal, but the Warriors’ defense saw the attack coming and managed to block each shot and keep the majority of the play in the middle of the field.

When the game came to a close, the Warriors’ tenacity and motivation paid off with a win. The team will play the Vandegrift Vipers this Friday at 4:30 p.m. at home.
