Football Uses Balanced Attack, Collects Another Road Win at Pinewood
Jumping out to a big early lead behind a clicking offense and a suffocating defense, the Warriors did enough in the second half to hold on for a 35-21 win at Pinewood Christian Academy Friday night. Read more...
The Warriors started hot, taking the opening drive right down the field and finished it with Adam Davis punching in a 10-yard touchdown run. The rest of the first quarter was highlighted by outstanding play from the defense, not allowing the homestanding Pinewood Patriots any chance to build momentum.
Early in the second quarter, the offense had one of its most explosive plays so far this season. Joe Parker connected on an 82-yard catch and run to Bridger Middleton for a long touchdown to give the Warriors a 14-0 advantage. The defense continued their great first half the following series, forcing a Patriot fumble. Hill Turner recovered the loose ball, giving great field position for the offense. Another Joe Parker touchdown pass, this a 3-yarder to Jacob Atkinson, put the Warriors ahead 21-0 going into Halftime.
Late in the third quarter, the Patriots found life with a long touchdown run, but couldn't convert the extra point. The Warriors responded with an explosive kick return all the way to the Pinewood 15 yard line. Adam Davis punched in his second touchdown run of the night shortly thereafter, and the Warriors were ahead 28-6.
Two Pinewood touchdowns made Warrior fans uneasy, pulling the score to 28-21 with still 6:52 left. Another Warrior touchdown created a 35-21 advantage, and Colin Grimsley finished the win with an interception in the final minutes.
The Warriors win improved the team to 3-1 on the season, with all four games coming away from home.
