In an emotional game, the Winner Warriors showed a lot of determination and poise in shutting out Jones County/White River 64-0 Thursday night.
This was the final game of the regular season and the No. 1 ranked Warriors are undefeated with an 8-0 record. This is the second consecutive year the Warriors have been undefeated at the end of the regular season.
The Warriors played with a heavy heart after last Wednesday’s death of teammate Taylor Watzel.
There was a moment of silence for Watzel before the start of the game.
On the sideline hung Watzel’s No. 66 jersey. Out of respect for Watzel and the WHS team the Jones County/White River team and coaching staff placed flowers at the base of the stand holding shirt.
