The last time the Warriors played on their annual Homecoming Game, they punched their ticket to the postseason for the first time in 12 seasons as they scored 28 unanswered points in the second half to complete an epic comeback against New Brighton with a score of 28-14.

 

This time around there was no need for any come-from-behind miracles.

 

The Warriors shook off any doubt from their 14-7 win over Western Beaver by matching that score in just over two minutes into the game. The Warriors would rack up four more touchdowns in the second quarter to give the home team a 42-0 lead going into halftime. There was a trio of Warriors would had two touchdowns in the first half. Tight end Jaize Ziegler had two receiving touchdowns, with the second one being a highlight-reel, across his body one-handed catch that left the entire stadium in shock as he he took it 15 yards for what will definitely be nominated for the Warriors’ “Play of the Year”. Wide receiver Nate McCutcheon had a pair of touchdown receptions of his own, snagging five balls for 113 yards in the process as he continues to be unstoppable in Mohawk’s passing attack. The final Warrior, running back Braydon Cameron, made things look easy as he, juked, bulldozed, and raced past Shenango defenders for 186 yards with two rushing touchdowns on only 14 carries. Quarterback Nick Wheeler finished the night with an impressive statline of his own, going 9-12 for 190 yards and four touchdown passes. As the offense rebounded from scoring only 14 points last week to 42 points in just two quarters on Friday,  the defense once again had a very strong outing as it pitched its second shutout of the season and allowing only 58 total yards in the first half. In the second half the mercy rule was in play as the clock was non-stop for the rest of the game. The Junior Varsity squad got to have some fun as well, as they enjoyed some action under the lights. Complementary running back Jake Stapleton found the end zone in the third quarter with a dash from 23 yards out, where that would tack on to give him 53 yards on the evening. Then in the final frame, sophomore Vincent Argiro put the icing on the cake with a 19 yard touchdown run of his own to give the Warriors a 54-0 win over the Wildcats. The Warriors move to 5-1 on the season where they will celebrate this win as well enjoy their Homecoming dance the following day. However, they will need to repeat their performance next Friday as they will have a date of their own at Riverside for what will for sure be a hard fought game with playoff implications on the line, including a bid for the Mid-Atlantic Conference crown, a feat that has not been done by a Mohawk team since 2005.
