The Warriors had a little slow start for their first game in 2016, and then scored 23 unanswered points in the 2nd quarter to pull away in the first victory of the 2016 season. 

The offense was unable to sustain any drives to score on the evening, but instead relied on big plays from their backfield. Dylan Egr led all rushers in the game, scoring 2 rushing touchdowns with 16 carries for 128 yards, averaging 8 yards a rush for the game. Zane Bennett had 4 carries for 63 yards and 1 Rushing TD.

Defensively the Warriors played about as well as they could have imagined. They gave up the only Ashland touchdown on their second play from scrimmage for 47 yards, but after that the defense only gave up 81 yards the rest of the game, and Dylan Egr scored Wahoo’s first touchdown of the season as he scooped up the Ashland fumble and returned it 22 yards. The defense was able to force 3 turnovers and 1 interception on the night, which allowed Wahoo to pull away in the 2nd and 3rd quarters. 

Wahoo’s Special Teams unit chipped in as well, as Blake Kaiser made a 37-yard field goal, and the punt block team, with Sam Kolterman, blocked a punt in the fourth quarter allowing Jake Ruzicka to pick up the punt and return it 22 yards for the final Warrior touchdown.

Wahoo will welcome Lincoln Christian (0-1) to town on next Friday night.
