In Friday’s league match, the Bulldogs football squad scored a close 14-7 victory over the Warriors.

Junior Andrew Baibos felt there were some positives despite the loss. 

“We ran the ball well like we have been. We just couldn’t get the win,” said Baibos. 

The Bulldogs set the tone early with a strong offensive attack and responded well to the pressure from the Warriors’s defense. 

However, the Warriors bounced back with a score from senior running back Allen Clapp. 

The game came down to a final play from the Warriors where the Bulldogs held strong on the goal line and sealed the game with an interception. 

The Bulldogs had 186 yards of total offense with 138 passing yards and 48 rushing yards.

The Warriors have proved to be a dominant force running the ball, posting 100 rushing yards 4 out of their 5 games this season.

Junior Kadeem Stewart remains focused on the next opponent despite the lost. 

“We just gotta stay focused and lock in and win the next game,” said Stewart. 

West York was 2-11 on third down conversions with 1 turnover; however, they managed to force one turnover as well.

The Warriors on the other hand were 2-13 on third down conversions, grabbing two interceptions, but they were not able to capitalize as they turned the ball over twice. 

The Warriors (3-3) will now prepare for their match against the Northern York Polar Bears.

The Polar Bears enter the non-league match with a 4-2 record. In their last matchup, Northern York held off West Perry by a score of 48-21, in a league match. 

Junior Tyler Evans feels the Warriors could do well.

“I feel like we match up very well against Northern even after losing last Friday to West York. I feel like the team is more motivated than ever to win this game,” said Evans. 

The Warriors will be away taking on the Polars Bears this Friday at 7 p.m.
