Once the second half began, the Warrior defense clamped down, and special teams took over. An errant shotgun snap went through the end zone, to double Henderson’s lead to 16-12. Another bad snap led to a 55 yard drive, that was capped off by Tre Green’s 6 yard run. Following a great punt return, Green got his third score on the night.
Although only going 4-9 in the air, Dinacci ran for 100 yards on 15 carries, and Green had 14 totes for 125 yards and 3 scores. The Warriors ran for 247 yards.
