Winters High School hosted the last league game against the Willows Honkers. The previous week’s game against Durham left the Warriors with their first defeat of the season. After playing a game at home the Warriors were recharged and dominated the game with a winning score of 42-7. “I was proud of the way the kids played and responded after a tough loss the week before,” said coach Daniel Ward. “The kids were focused and we had a great week of practice.” Offensively, the Warriors had a great game, lead by by Sophomore Carson Lowrie who was the starting Quarterback. The Warriors had to play the game without Daniel Carrion, the offensive anchor from the beginning of the season. “We had to play without Daniel (Carrion) due to injury, who leads the entire northern section in yards from scrimmage ( to season end) and touchdowns,” stated Ward. He went on to say, “Sophomore Carson Lowrie was amazing in his first varsity start leading the charge.” The offensive line dominated the line of scrimmage, leading the way to a season high 437 rushing yards. Carson Lowrie had a tremendous game not only as starting quarterback, but completing 167 yards rushing and 3 touchdowns. Senior Dalton Lowrie, Carson’s older brother came in a close second with 155 rushing yards. The offensive line dominated the line of scrimmage leading the way to a season high 437 yards rushing. “It was fun seeing the Lowrie brothers together in the backfield and thought the kids really rallied around Carson,” said Ward. Defensively, the Warriors had one one of their best games of the year, limiting the Honkers to less than 100 total yards of offense and shutting them out for most of the game. Gary Molina made seven tackles and Evan Judd had nine tackles. The two of them led the Warriors defense and dominated the Honkers’ offense. The Warriors made Friday night’s game a huge boost for team morale and school spirit. Even though the season is over, the Winters Warriors have secured the number two seed in the NSCIF division playoffs, and will host Williams High School’s football team on Friday, Nov. 9 at 7 p.m.]]>
