GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - The first win can be the hardest win to get, but now the Central Warriors can check that off the list.
The Warriors are coming off a 37-20 win over the Gateway Olympians where they ran for over 200 yards and four touchdowns, a nice rebound from their shutout loss to the Grand Junction Tigers the week prior. The Warriors' attack was led by Anthony Zubiate's 90 yards on the ground and Cade Balleweg's two rushing touchdowns. Now, the Warriors hope to keep moving in the right direction.
"It's us [the coaches] continuing to preach to them to believe in themselves," said Head Coach Shawn Marsh. "When you work together as a team and when you work together as a family and do the right thing, good things happen. That's part of the process of having your whole team and everybody does the right thing you have the chance to put good things together and good things will happen. I think that's the difference between last week and the first two weeks."
"Once we get that first one under our belts I think that's a good start and that's a good one for us," said Balleweg. "Since we picked that up I think we'll roll with that and go from there."
The Warriors are on a bye week, but play the Fruita Monument Wildcats on September 21.
