Hannan secured the lead in the second half but needed their defense to step up in the closing minutes with three sacks to finally put the Warriors away. After the game, head coach Scott Wattigny praised the total team effort “Our kids did exactly what we ask them to do on a daily basis, continue to fight, we persevered through a ton of adversity and it was a well fought game on both sides. I’m just really proud of our guys.”

2017 saw Wattigny’s team start 7-0 before their first loss. The 2018 edition will look to go to 6-0 next Friday at Jewel Sumner.
