The Warriors started the game off well with a long passing touchdown by QB Heath Decker to WR Emanuelle Giannetta.
The Warriors Defense without their leader Ben Stokes struggled early on without being able to put much pressure on the Croydon quarterback. As the game grew, so did the confidence and the play of the Warriors Defense as they were able to gain sacks and also produce an impressive defensive stand in the 4th quarter with the Rangers 1st and Goal from 5yards out.
The defense were able to shut out the Rangers as a fumbled punt attempts saw the Rangers pounce on the ball and roll into the endzone for their only score for the day.
A great day was also had by the running backs as RB Luke Jackson ran by defenders all day and even had a score of his own.
