No. 3 Warriors make quick work of Cavaliers

WINAMAC — By the time Winamac held its homecoming festivities at halftime Friday night, the actual football game had been well decided.

The Warriors jumped out to a 48-0 lead at halftime against Tri-County and were able to cruise from there to a 55-8 win.

“They were big inside and we ran it outside and fortunately we were able to get up early. They didn’t have an answer for our speed and quickness really,” Warrior coach Tim Roth said. “We had our regulars in for one series in the second half and took them out with eight minutes to go in the third quarter and were able to sub in our 2s and 3s.”

Tyler Katschke made the most of his brief cameo appearance on the night, rushing for 181 yards and four touchdowns on 12 carries. Parker Fox threw a 28-yard TD pass to Levi Schultz and added a 3-yard TD run. Keegan Kasten had a 22-yard TD run, and Andrew Risner added a 6-yard run for a score.

Inside linebacker Mitch Reed led the Winamac effort on defense with seven tackles, four assists, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Colin McGee added an interception that he returned 33 yards.

The Warriors (5-0, 4-0 Midwest Conference) led 21-0 after one quarter before adding 27 more unanswered points in the second.

The Cavaliers (1-4, 1-3) got on the board in the fourth quarter on a 5-yard TD run by Brenden Kidd.

“It was a good win. We’re through what I call the catch games for this part of the season with South Newton and Tri-County both being down a little bit,” Roth said. “They’re obviously not our biggest rivals and we were worried how we’d perform against both. We really like the way we got the ball rolling in the first half.”

The win sets up a showdown at No. 5 West Central next week.
