The No. 1 rated Winner Warriors kept its undefeated football string in tack Friday night as they defeated Redfield/Doland 50-0. The game ended with 1:48 left to play in the third quarter due to the mercy rule. This is the fourth shut out for the Warriors who have a 7-0 record.
“Each week we have someone who has a big play or big yardage and it changes each week. Last week Barry did not have a lot of yards and this week he is our rushing leading. We credit that to the unselfishness of our backfield,” explained Aaker. “I am really happy in the way our defense played as we held them to 27 yards. Our defense is playing well and they are going to have to continue as we go forward,” said the coach.
The Warriors will close out the regular season when they travel to Murdo on Thursday to take on Jones County/White River, a new opponent and a new 11 man team.
Jones County/White River runs a double wing offense similar to Winner.
