On Friday, Oct. 26, the Warriors traveled to Durham in the far north  of the Sacramento Valley League. They played a game against Durham High School, which was the last scheduled league game that the Warriors needed for a high seed in the play offs. The Warriors fought hard in their toughest game to date, but returned home with their first loss of the season. The score was 7 – 21. Offensively, Daniel Carrion threw the ball a total of 29 times, 14 of which were caught, for a total of 230 yards. The Warriors made it to Durham’s 20 yard line on four separate occasions, but the Trojans stopped them from scoring. After moving up from JV last week, Carson Lowrie was able to get some game time as quarterback. Lowrie had two passes for a total of 24 yards. “When it comes down to it we were outplayed and out coached”, said Coach Daniel Ward. “They were the more aggressive team and executed much better than we did, which is disappointing because I felt like we were the better team.” The Warriors had a difficult time. They actually had more offensive yards, a total of 389 yards. Unfortunately they had many penalties that cost them dearly and turnovers. The Warriors had a total of four turnovers in Friday’s game, a number which is more than they had all season. The Warriors defense made a total of 63 tackles. In the third quarter the Warriors could not control the line of scrimmage as they had in previous games, they allowed the Durham Trojans a third touchdown. Once the Trojans had a comfortable lead they controlled the clock and the Warriors not allowed had a chance to answer the scoring plays until the fourth quarter. Coach Ward stated, “Even with the loss we have secured a playoff spot and will have at least 1 home playoff game.” This coming friday the Warriors will return home for one last league game. The Warriors will host Willows this Friday night for senior night. Winters High School and the football team will be having their first ever “Blackout” game, and are encouraging fans to wear as much black to the game as possible.]]>
