VARSITY Playoffs: Warriors vs Lincoln Patriots Oct 30th (34-40)
Warriors faced off the Patriots in the first round of the "AAA" playoffs. It was the best performance the Warriors put on all season and put fear in the Patriots. This offense came out and shined and played their best game. Michael Johnson had 25 carries for 96 yds and 2 TDs, QB Max Thomson threw for 308 yards and 2 TDs. Receivers Josh Piper who had 6 catches, for 144 yds and Carson Storm who had 9 catches for 137 yds and 2 TDs - both had impressive catches that just sparked the Warriors.
There were a number of moments where things looked brink for the Warriors and they could have given up. But they fought through the adversity and played with heart the Warrior way. In the 4th quarter a throw from Thomson to Storm pushed the Warriors to their first lead of the game at 34-27.
It came down to the last 10 seconds of the game that is tied at 34-34. Patriorts QB took the ball for the final play scarmbling as the Warrior defense put it all on the line to bring him down. He released the ball in the air no seconds left on the clock and he was caught by a Patriot for a TD.
Warriors gave it their all and put on a great performance with class and played the Warrior way.
Coach Evans, fought back tears when he talked about the seniors "They're a special group...We were limited in a lot of things just because we needed to be safe, right? And they led the team through everything. We didn't win as many ballgames as we wanted to, but they ignored the noise and they kept leading the team." "The growth of the team over the last three weeks has been so tremendous and it's becuase of the seniors." Coach Evans quote from Argus Leader
Warrior Nation is proud of all your accomplishments and how you handled a year full of hurdles. Wishing the seniors only the best on their next adventure in football and life!

JV: Warriors vs Brandon Valley (13-12)
It was a physical battle between two tough JV teams. The Warriors led by their defense from start to finish. Abraham Meyers showed off his track speed on an 80 yd long scoop and score to start off the Warriors. Defense was able to force 5 turnovers. The biggest two turnovers occured at the end of the game down in the Red ZOne. All Brandon needed to do was score to end the game as they were up 12-6. But, the Warriors had two incredible stops at the goal line and Carter Doescher and Tryg Auten each forced a fumble to keep Brandon out.
Down 6 , 80 yards to go and under 2 minutes QB Noah Robertson had a gusty performance. It was 4th down and Noah completed a screen pass to Fitzimmons. There he made a couple of cuts in the middle, followed his blockers, and broke off to a 65 yard reception TD. 1:30 left on the clock and Auten stepped up to make the game winning PAT to beat Brandon. This was one of the best games played by the JV and had us all on our toes. They never gave up and came together as a team! Next up Warriors will face the Rough RIders in their final game of the seaons. Go Warriors!

Below is Our 2010 Senior Warriors (updated 08/11)
"What a great clip! It pumps you up for another great season!"
2011 South Dakota All-Star Game
It felt like another "Warrior" game as Coach Hermanson was the defense coach for the South Team that included 4 Warriors: Matt Hermanson, Brandon Mohr, Serkaut Aware, and Kenny Fiddler. It was great to see all four of them take the field one last time together! Their talents shined as Hermanson and Fiddler made big hits on defense, Mohr continued to plow through the line gaining major yards, and Aware making the first big interception of the game. After each major play looking at Coach Hermanson you can see how proud he was of his players. South ended up sweeping the game with a big win 37-0. Coach Hermanson was also recognized for his 30 years of coaching. Congrats to you all! Below are photos from the game.
