In their first play-off game since 2012, the Warrenton Warriors football team came up short against the Spartans last Friday night in Sheridan.

The final score was 3-28.

“I’m really proud of our kids’ efforts this season,” Coach Ian O’Brien said. “We made some huge strides from the first to the last week of the season. Sheridan is a physical football team with some great players.”

Warrenton battled hard despite the defeat, he said.

“We had some things happen early on in the game that hurt our momentum,” O’Brien said. “But, thank goodness, Kenzie Ramsey drilled a field goal late in the third quarter to put some points on the board for us.”

He thanked the senior players time for their leadership over the last couple of years.

“We are looking forward to the next step in our program.”
