On Friday, Sept. 23, the Winters High School varsity football team won their away non-conference game against Williams Junior Senior High School by a score of 49–26.

“I thought we played our best overall game of the year against a very tough Williams team and hope we can ride this momentum into league play next week,” said head coach Daniel Ward.

Justice Madsen led his team offensively with 176 rushing yards and 181 receiving yards and four touchdowns. Gio Jimenez and Ethan Judd also played a very competitive offensive game and were key players in the Warrior victory. Jimenez had 59 rushing yards and two touchdowns while Judd had 27 rushing yards, 81 receiving yards and one touchdown.

“Offensively our line handled the blitz very well which led to a lot of big plays both on the ground and through the air. We only ran 30 plays and had over 450 yds of offense and we had five plays of 50 yds or more,” commented Ward.

The Warriors defense had a great game as well and tackles were well dispersed amongst the entire defensive team. Jimenez and Sanders Clark lead their team in tackles with a total of nine tackles each. Sebastian Valadez had seven and Jesse Madsen had six. Jimenez, Ethan Demment and Nathan Figueroa all played an aggressive game sacking the Williams quarterback at different points in the game. Ashton Baylor also made a very impressive interception giving his team the advantage they needed to pull ahead in the game.

“Defensively we did a great job of controlling the line of scrimmage and tackled much better in the open field, but we are still giving up too many big plays. We started fast and handled adversity well which has been a problem so far this season,” said Ward.

The Warriors’ next game is against Live Oak High School Oct. 7.
