Aiden Cruz was a key player in Friday nights game by, “making some really nice runs,” said Coach Gomez. The Warriors defense started strong, holding Durham’s offense scoreless in the first quarter. Once Durham scored in the second quarter it set the tone of the rest of the game, continuing through the fourth. “It turned out to be a hard fought game for the Warriors as Durham’s offense and defense proved to be too powerful,” said Gomez. He went on to say, “Winters played a hard fought game and never allowed themselves to give up.” This coming Friday the Warriors will come home and Winters will host Willows for the last game of the season. For all the sports fans out there, remember to wear as much black as possible for the first ever “blackout” game.]]>
