ST. IGNATIUS — The Arlee Warriors prevailed 16-0 in a Sept. 15 football game against the Mission Bulldogs on the dog’s home turf.
The Warriors picked up a second touchdown in the second quarter. The Warriors sealed the game in the fourth quarter when they intercepted the ball from Mission with minutes left on the clock.
The Bulldogs appeared disappointed but determined with a shout out as they headed into the locker: “We can do better.”
Arlee Head Coach Quinn Huisman said the Warriors have four wins under their belt so far this season. He said the team has a good mix up with players from each grade. Huisman added that the team’s positive outlook has kept them going. “These seniors have believed in the program since freshman year, and when things didn’t go great, they just stayed with it,” he said.
Huisman also spoke with pride about how much effort his Warriors put in during the off season in the weight room. He added that he is also proud of how the team has created a “brotherhood.”
“Next week we play Superior,” Huisman said. “They’re one of the top teams in our division, and so this week, we’re just gonna stay focused on them.” The Warriors play Superior at home on Sept. 22 at 7 p.m.
