In a blink of an eye, Week 6 of Warrior Football was upon us last Friday as Fairview traveled to Brooklyn for their third conference game of the season and their opener in the PAC Stripes Division. Coming into the matchup versus Brooklyn, the Warriors blew out Firelands in an upset 35-6. Therefore, there was much for Fairview expectation-wise for a winless Brooklyn Hurricanes.
The Fairview Warriors offense was nothing short of spectacular. Excelling was the running back tandem of Sr. Jack Provenza and Jr. Marty Rehor, as both torched the Brooklyn secondary and rushed for three touchdowns each. In fact, all of Fairview’s points were scored in the first half; all seven touchdowns scored were rushing. Jr. Ian McClintock was the last player to score as the fullback plugged a nineteen-yard touchdown run up the middle for a touchdown in the first half’s final seconds.
Matching the Fairview offense was the Warriors defense. If there’s been something that has stayed constant throughout the Fairview season, it must be the defense. The Warriors Andrew Foyt-led defense has had an efficiency of 90+% in the past two weeks, as the defense busted through the offensive front of Brooklyn all night. Brooklyn has struggled offensively, and with a young offensive line and the loss of now-graduated All-Conference QB John Kenderes, the Hurricanes have faced Category four defeats.
Brooklyn did, however, score their only touchdown of the night on defense, the only high point for the defense and the team itself. But the touchdown, the last of the game from both teams, was not enough for Brooklyn as Fairview pummeled the Hurricanes 48-7.
Going into Week 7, Fairview will have a record of 2-4 overall, 2-1 in the PAC, and 1-0 in the PAC Stripes Division, as they host Oberlin this Friday at 7 pm ET for Homecoming Weekend.
