Powered by the run and backed by a stingy defense, the Warriors move onto the semi finals
The HCA Warriors are headed toward an incredible finish for the year with their most recent advancement to Semi-Finals! Last Friday, the Warriors headed to south to Vidalia, Georgia to take on the Heritage Eagles! The underdog Warriors were the first to strike a touchdown run by Senior, Camden Moore . The Warriors continued to dominate the first half by scoring another Touchdown by Camden Moore. The Warriors defense was just as impressive, forcing the Eagles into long yardage situations and sacks, and stuffing the run throughout the first half. With the Warriors holding an early two touchdown lead, the Eagles tightened down their defense and the first half finished out as a defensive battle by both teams. The Warriors received the ball to start the second half. The halftime adjustments made by the Warriors paid dividends with their opening drive in the third quarter, resulting in another touchdown run by Camden Moore. The next drive, the Eagles marched down and scored their first touchdown, turning this game into a strong fight. Both teams traded punts on the next two drives. On the Eagles punt, the Warriors fumbled the punt and gave the Eagles prime field position starting at the Warriors 30 yard line. With the Eagles looking to make this a one score game, the Warriors defense had something else in mind. The Warriors defense stood tall and forced the Eagles to turn the ball over on downs. On the next possession, the Warriors marched down to put the game out of reach with their touchdown run by Senior, Malachi Mathis. The Warriors ground game took a toll on the Eagles, as the Warriors couldn’t be stopped! The Warriors closed out the game in victory formation and are set for next week’s semi-final game as a rematch game against a conference foe Kings Way of Douglasville.
