WARRIORS 42 FAIRMONT 8
The 8th grade football team traveled to Kettering on Wednesday to take on Fairmont in their season opener. The Warriors came out strong on the first drive scoring on a long run for the score for a 8-0 first quarter lead. Fairmont answered with a quick touchdown of their own, after the extra point the score was all tied up at 8-8. Wayne quickly turned to the air for another touchdown and never looked back. After a tough defensive stand, the Firebirds were forced to punt resulting in a long return for a score for the Warriors. Wayne went into halftime with a 22-8 lead. The defense made some adjustments and played physical football the rest of the game not allowing another score. Wayne scored on their next 3 possessions, coming away with a 42-8 road win.
The Warriors host Lebanon next Wednesday at Studebaker 7pm.
