LUTZ- Steinbrenner drove the Sunlake Seahawks into the ground in Friday night’s 20-9 victory as the Warriors offense came up bigger than usual.

Warriors quarterback, senior Quentin Poteralski scrambled in the pocket so much, it seemed he was dancing with the defense, shaking linesmen left and right until he would manage to get a nice 30 yard thrown deep down the field to hot players senior Kezio Snelling and junior Justin Moffatt.

“I feel very confident outside of the pocket and my legs feel great when I’m scrambling,” said Poteralski.

Snelling and Moffatt combined for around 122 yards and 12 points on the night came directly from the junior wide receiver. And although Steinbrenner’s offense made a big impression in the county, some bad news eventually came. Snelling after getting dinged multiple times came out of the game with what looks to be a leg injury after the first half.

“We slowed down in the second half but the performance was great,” said Poteralski.

Meanwhile Poteralski kept his groove going as he went on to throw 177 yards through 17-23 passes. The only mistake the quarterback made was with one minute left and threw an interception right in the middle of the field giving Sunlake room to strike and add on six points to the scoreboard. Impressively, up until that moment, Steinbrenner held the number one team in Pasco to only three points showing once again that the Steinbrenner defense is a force not to be trifled with.

“They worked as a unit and that was the key to success. Our back (running backs) and quarterbacks had great chemistry tonight,” said Head Coach Perez-Reinaldo.

The Warriors will go on to face Plant City on the 29th at 7:30 on the road.

Lutz- In a 17-15 rollercoaster effort, the Warriors (3-5, 2-2) claimed their second consecutive win as they defeated district rival, the Freedom Patriots (1-7, 0-4).

“These grinding games are just so emotional because it takes so much out of these players emotionally and physically” said Warrior Head Coach, Andres Reinaldo Perez. “When they win, it means the world to them.”

Numerous penalties returned to the Warriors as two unsportsmanlike flags against Perez late in the game resulted in his ejection. The Warriors had ten plus penalties in the game.

“Fun. This is how it’s supposed to end. We play a game where you see our coach fighting for us, that’s what it’s all about. That’s a real family bond.” said Warrior junior wide receiver, Kezio Snellings.

Although it wasn’t their best effort, the Warriors still pulled out ahead in Friday’s dramatic senior night victory with the help of kickoff returner Snellings. Kezio managed to rack up over 100 yards on special teams and over 50 yards on offense.

“I took everything that was going on for the last nine weeks and put it altogether to try and help my team get this victory because we all deserve this win” said Snellings.

However, the real story was another exhilarating performance by Warrior senior running back, Shyheem Barthel. Easily being his best year in blue and gold colors, Barthel has racked up a total of five touchdowns and around 200 yards in his past two games. This includes the 70 yards and two scores from this past Friday.

“Getting a win like this on senior night, it’s great” said Barthel. “I’m trying to hold back tears and getting a win like this will make you remember it forever.

The Warriors faced an enemy that is unwanted everywhere you go in sports. Turnovers. This was the key in the Warriors gift that just as easily could have been a devastating loss. The Warriors fumbled the ball twice, missed an essential field goal, failed a fourth down conversion and punted four times.

“It’s what we said from the beginning of the year. We have a big district game next week and we are gonna put everything we have into it” said Perez.

The Warriors will play district rival, Gaither High School Friday night hoping to add to their slim playoff chances. Steinbrenner needs a Sickles win against Tampa Bay Tech in order for Steinbrenner, TBT and Gaither to be tied for the second place seed in the district.

“In a game like this, everyone puts everything they have into it, and that’s what makes it special for seniors” said Perez.
