The Warrior defense continues to impress, but it wasn’t quite enough to overcome some offensive woes on Friday night as South Winn fell to Clayton Ridge, 7-0.

“We had a hard time getting in rythem on offense,” said coach Jason Ohrt after the district loss. “Clayton Ridge did a good job of forcing us on the perimeter in the run game. We made some blocking assignment errors and had a few costly penalties.”
