<![CDATA[The Winters High School varsity football team (3-2) traveled to Willows to take on the Honkers (2-3) in the last Sacramento Valley League contest of the season. An important game for the Warriors as a win would give them favorable playoff standings and, possibly, give them a home playoff game for the quarter finals. In the first three quarters Winters controlled the field. The offensive line played to their strengths utilizing their running game as the key to their victory. They moved the ball 219 yards, 233 yards overall. Carson Lowrie and Adian Cruz were unstoppable and led the Warriors offense in yards gained. The offensive line held strong, opening holes in the Honkers defense to run the ball through. Winters controlled the field from the defensive line, stopping more than 40 of the Honkers plays. Cruz and Jose Escobedo played one of their biggest games of the season leading the team in tackles with 27 between the two. Cruz intercepted the ball twice, taking possession from the Honkers. Escobedo never took his eye off the ball and was able to recover two fumbles, with a gain of 12 yards. The Warriors win puts their league record at 4-2. Winters will host the quarter finals playoff game, against the Williams Yellowjackets(104) on Friday, Nov. 15. The overall record for both teams is 4-6.]]>
