JH Warriors play with minimum number

Score doesn’t indicate fight

by Tyler Williams

September 24, 2018

     With only six Warrior players able to suit up on September 20, many teams would have thrown in the towel before the game even began.  Being stuck with the bare minimum to start the game obviously means no breaks, players playing out of position, and the possibility of having an injury and having less than the required amount to play with to the finish. 

     Though the scoreboard showed that the Warriors were defeated 52-6 by Pike Valley, it did not speak to the effort the young players showed throughout the game.  The hustle Zack Duggin showed on a kickoff that would have been returned had he not given in and was able to knock the return man out at the 2 yard line with the game nearly over was a strong representation of how much fight the team was willing to have, even if it was not going to be a victory. 

     The Warriors lone score came when they were down a man due to injury, and were now engaged in a 5-on-5 game, thanks to Pike Valley coaches being sympathetic of the situation.   It was scored by Bryson Schmidt on a quarterback sneak down that he squeezed through and escaped down the left sideline for a 45 yard score. 

     The Warriors will next be in  action against Thunder Ridge at home on Thursday, September 27 at home with a 5:00 kickoff.
