sept 14, Serving the MonDak area since 1908 ml Strong running, sustained blocking and intense defense led to a 44-6 non-conference win for the Savage Warriors over Jordan Saturday. "We worked hard all week and our line (both ways) really came through for us. Our offensive line did an exceptional job of sustaining blocks this week," Savage Head Coach Wade Hagler said. "Everyone came to work this game and it was just a great team effort. A big win like this for a young team does a great thing for boosting our con- fidence." The Warriors wasted no time in scoring as the Warriors' Travis Tombre forged ahead for a nine-yard run on Savage's ini- tial possession. Jerrit Schmierer ran the ball tO the Mustangs' four-yard line, and with fourth and inches, Tombre pounded in the game's first score for the Warriors with 6:39 remaining in the first quarter. The extra- points conversion was added by Tombre to gain an 8-0 advan- tage. Savage's defense, led by a pair of strong defensive plays by Zach McPherson, forced the Mustangs to hand the ball back over to the Warriors. However, Savage was unable to score on the possession as the score remained at 8-0 in favor of Sav- age to end the quarter. The Mustangs, with a run by Skylar Harbaugh, narrowed the margin to 8-6 at the 8:30 mark in period. Due to a heavy hit by Chris Aibright on the conversion attempt, Jordan was unable to capitalize leaving the Warriors with a lead of 8-6. Savage's offense quickly gained momen- tum once again fueled by a 22- yard keeper by Tad Dobraska, a 10-yard gain by Schmierer and a 35-strike from Dobraska to Albright to hand the Warriors a first-and-goal situation. Dobras- ka, with a nine-yard keeper around the end, increased the Warriors' lead to 14-6 with 3:23 left in the half. Although Jordan attempted a late fourth down attempt, a great defensive effort by Schmierer and Albright held the Mustangs on downs as Sav- age took a 14-6 lead into the half. Strong power runs by Tombre started the second half of play for the Warriors, and with a pitch to Schmierer, Savage found itself near midfield. A trio of hard runs by Tombre moved Savage to the Mustangs' 18-yard line leading to a 17-yard paydirt connection from Dobraska to McPherson. As Schmierer added the conversion, the War- riors commanded an advantage of 28-6. Savage's Dobraska, with a late-quarter interception, returned the ball back to the Mustang 26 to hand the Warriors a final scoring attempt for the third quarter of play. With a muscling run by Tombre, the Warriors advanced the ball to the six. A high-reaching grab by Albright for the TD and a two- point reception from Dobraska to Schmierer increased Savage's lead to 36-6 at the close of the third quarter. The Warriors final score for the day was set up by a fourth and ninth situation as Tombre powered for a first down on the play. A nice 20-yard, change of direction run by Schmierer accounted for six points as a Tombre reception from Dobras- ka provided the final score of 44-6. Schmierer led the offensive ground attack for the Warriors with 142 yards followed by Tombre with 101. Dobraska accumulated 93 yards on the ground. AIbright finished with 68 reception yards followed by McPherson with 38. Dobraska threw for 110 yards. Defensive- ly, the Warriors were led by Ryan Fischer and Tombre with 12 tackles each.
