No. 3 Warriors cap off undefeated regular season with rout of Frontier

CHALMERS — Winamac finished up a perfect regular season with a 47-13 win at Frontier on Friday night.

The Class A No. 3 Warriors (9-0, 7-0 Midwest Conference) recorded their first undefeated regular season and MWC championship since 2000.

The Warriors jumped out to a 33-7 lead at halftime and led 40-7 after three quarters.

The Warriors held the Falcons (1-8, 1-6) to just 10 yards of offense at the half while coming up with two interceptions and two fumble recoveries. The Falcons’ score in the first half came on a 62-yard blocked field goal return by Brandon Gallinger, who added a 15-yard TD run as time expired in the game.

Tyler Katschke rushed for 148 yards on 19 carries and had a 14-yard touchdown run to open the scoring for the Warriors.

Keegan Kasten scored on 2 of his 5 rushing attempts and finished with 50 yards.

J.T. Garnett had touchdown passes of 45 yards to Sean Lynch and 65 yards to Levi Schultz. Garnett added a 3-yard TD run and finished 4-of-9 passing for 131 yards.

Caleb Bucinski added a 6-yard TD run in the fourth quarter for the Warriors.

“Defensively we played really well,” Winamac coach Tim Roth said. “Offensively we had too many penalties.

“In the first half we went through the motions. In the third quarter we didn’t have the ball but five plays and it got chippy in the third quarter. We finally got fired up. Defensively we played very well but it seemed like every time we ran for over 10 yards we got a penalty. It was dumb stuff they called. We have some fine-tuning to do before next Friday.”

It was the Warriors’ 10th MWC title overall. Frontier and Pioneer are tied with the most with 11 each. Frontier hasn’t won one since 1989 while Pioneer’s first came in 1997. Next season will be Winamac’s and Pioneer’s final year in the MWC before joining the Hoosier North Athletic Conference.

“It’s quite an accomplishment,” Roth said. “We’ve had good teams since 2000 that have finished anywhere between second to fourth because we couldn’t beat Pioneer. This year we got them. It’s something for the kids to be proud of to have an undefeated conference and undefeated season. August was a long time ago and to win week after week I don’t care who you’re playing it’s quite an accomplishment.”

The Warriors host Lake Station to open sectional play next week.
