Just one year ago, the Apache seventh graders walked off Redskin Field with a 40-0 loss to the Warriors to finish their season winless at 0-7.

What a difference a year makes.

This year, the Apaches eighth graders avenged last year’s loss with a 16-8 win to end the season with a 4- 3 record.

Adan Amador dominated the Warriors, leading the Apaches to a 16-0 lead in the first half, and his final play of the night came in the third quarter when he scrambled for a first down on a 15-yard run before suffering a leg injury.

Hudson Rice ran the wildcat for the Apaches the

rest of the night. The Warriors were able to put together a scoring drive with runs up the middle by Ayden Juarez that cut the Apache lead to 16-8, but the Seymour Rogers defense forced three first half turnovers, and a pounding drive by the Apaches for the final four minutes preserved the 16-8 win.

“This was one of the worst teams last year I ever coached,” Apache coach Kaelin Shuck said. “Then we had COVID, we had low numbers again. But they came to practice, they worked hard, and all summer we had strength and conditioning, and they showed up. Our starting quarterback today was a lineman last year. To see them have a winning season, it’s one of the most incredible things I’ve ever been a part of. We run out the clock, we grind it, and we rely on our defense. This was a complete 180 from last year.”
