Warriors face tough opponent


Last updated 9/8/2006 at Noon

Last Friday the young Fallbrook Warriors began a new era with head coach Patrick Schmidt facing the highly ranked San Clemente Tritons in their home confines. The young Warrior team played a very physical game and represented themselves well by never giving up against a very large and fast Triton team. The final score was Tritons 49, Warriors 21.

The first half was dominated by number seven-ranked San Clemente using a balanced offense of both run and pass. The first half began badly for the Warriors when they suffered the loss of inspirational senior defensive back Matt Bickel on the opening kick-off coverage team to an apparent knee injury. However, the Warriors did have three great defensive plays: interceptions by Alderez Siaton on the first play of the game, Jake Ware at the goal line and Cory Bitting, who returned his interception 10 yards. The two biggest offensive plays were a 45-yard pass from Aaron Holt to Nick Hayes and a five-yard touchdown run by Cody McDole. The score at half was 42-7.

In the second half the Warriors rebounded by scoring two touchdowns and holding the Tritons to one score. The second half highlights included an 18-yard pass from Holt to Bryan Coker, a 15-yard run by Holt and a fumble forced by Calvin Kolone recovered by Will Evans. Others included a 79-yard touchdown run and a 50-yard touchdown run by Nick Hayes, giving the Fallbrook fans reason to be excited for the coming games.

All in all, the Warriors demonstrated that they will never quit and learned some lessons from a very good Triton team. The Warriors look to be tested once again this Saturday, September 10, at Point Loma. They have time to make adjustments and will be ready to give a fabulous effort. Come show your support for the team and their new coaching staff as they build a program Fallbrook can be proud of!
