Warriors Lose in Injury Shortened Contest

by Rick Hatfield

October 16, 2020

The Southern Cloud Warriors were coming off a week where they couldn’t play due to illness.  They were looking forward to a spirited game with the Lincoln Leopards and it started out just that way when Colton Walters caught a 24 yard TD pass from Brennan Copple to put the Warriors up 6 – 0.  The Leopards responded with 2 TD runs from Levi Bates to put Lincoln up 14 – 6.

 

Unfortunately, that is where the game would end because on the next play, a kick off, Dashawn Peterson was returning the kick and was hit hard and was knocked out of the game with rib injuries and a concussion.  The game ended because the Warriors no longer had enough players to play. 

 

“I was sad that the boys couldn’t finish the game, they were really playing hard and so was Lincoln.  I felt bad for Dashawn and hope he will recover soon.  Still this has been a great year.  The kids never gave up and I am really proud of their efforts all year long.  I told them if they could finish the year that it would be a significant achievement and it really is, playing with 6 guys all year.” Quoted Warrior Coach Rick Hatfield.

 

The Warrior “Iron Men” are Shane Williams, Brennan Copple, Colton Walters, Logan Haley, Kye Chase, and Dashawn Peterson.

 

This ends the Warrior football season.  The Warriors end the season with a 1 – 6 record, but a lot of pride in what they accomplished.
