The Warriors ended their spectacular 2018 regular season with a non-conference matchup against Summit Academy. They will be heading into the playoffs on high note thanks to Saturday’s win the mud.

 

The Warriors wasted no time getting on the board, on the first possession of the game the Warriors forced a blocked punt and was recovered in the endzone by Josh Kurtz to put the Warriors up 7-0 very early in the game. The extremely muddy conditions did not seem to bother quarterback Nick Wheeler, who had a trio of touchdown passes in the game, all coming from a few yards out. Jaize Ziegler had two of those touchdown receptions, and could of had a third one but was negated by a penalty. Joey Hervatine was the recipient of the last touchdown, and the Warriors cruised 28-0 to the break. Coming out in the second half, the majority of the reps belonged to the Junior Varsity squad, but the youth and inexperience showed as Summit Academy slowly climbed their way back into the game, putting up two quick touchdowns to make the score 28-14. This brought the decision to bring the starters back into the game, who have been cold on the bench as mistakes allowed Summit come within striking distance with the score of 28-20. With all momentum lost, the Warriors regrouped and marched down the length of the (muddy) field while feed bruising running back Braydon Cameron. Cameron seemed to not have any trouble in the mud, as he made defenders miss and left them in his tracks all afternoon. He capped off the long drive with a touchdown of his own, which put the game on ice as the score would stay 34-20. The Warriors will celebrate this win, but they will have a quick turnaround as they will figure out who they are paired with for the first round of the WPIAL Class 2A Playoffs on Monday night when the seedings are released at 9:00. The Warriors will be hosting a playoff game for the first time in 13 years, with the last home playoff game being a 33-0 victory for the Warriors over visiting Jeanette, a team with future NFL player Terrelle Pryor. Whoever Mohawk is matched up against, they will need to be on their “A” game as the team has dreams of a run at the WPIAL championship, and everyone who they will have to go through will be no easy task. The Warriors will be at home next Friday with a kickoff at 7:30.
