Panthers Outscore Warriors

by Rick Hatfield

September 27, 2020

Miles Rickard scored 9 touchdowns for Pike Valley Junior High as they defeated the home town Warriors 88 – 40. Rickard scored 6 TD’s on the ground and 3 more on returns.  The Warriors scored plenty on this night as well, but couldn’t keep up with the Panther back.

The Warriors were led by Colton Walters with 2 touchdowns on the ground and 2 touchdowns in the air from Brennan Copple, who enjoyed his best performance so far as the Warrior quarterback. He was 3 for 8 with 2 Td’s and no interceptions and 95 yards. He also scored once on the ground.  Kye Chase chipped in with 66 yards and a touchdown and Dashawn Peterson added 2 extra point catches on the night. Logan Haley played a flawless game at center with no bad snaps and Shane Williams played another good game at left end.

The tackle chart was the real problem for the Warriors, as Colton Walters led the way with 6 tackles, two for losses, Kye Chase had 3 tackles, 0ne for a loss, Dashawn Peterson had 3 tackles, Brennan Copple had 1 tackle, Shane Williams and Logan Haley did not have a tackle.

“Offensively we played really well, we didn’t have a turnover and we moved the ball consistently, but we allowed 5 onside kicks to work and that killed us. We needed to control the ball to try to control Rickard and we didn’t do it.  We still need to tackle better, but other than the onside kicks, I did feel that we played a better game mentally.”  Quoted coach Rick Hatfield of the Warriors.

The Warriors play next against Thunder Ridge at Miltonvale.  Game time is at 5:00 PM so Thunder Ridge can start home a little earlier.
