Warriors Unable To Keep Pace With Tigers



Happy Valley wasn’t able to keep pace with a hot Pigeon Forge offense on Friday night.

The Warriors saw a hard-fought effort come up short in a 48-19 decision on Warrior Hill Friday night.

It was a back-and-forth battle in the opening stages.

After Aidan Howard put Pigeon Forge on the scoreboard in the opening minute, Joseph Sowards answered for the Warriors with a one-yard touchdown to tie the game at 7-7.

PF, however, regained the lead and took a 21-7 lead early in the first quarter.

The Warriors continued to battle as Bronson Norman scored on an eight-yard run. That trimmed the Tiger lead to 21-13 midway through the quarter.

A pair of Pigeon Forge touchdowns pushed the Tiger advantage to 34-13 at the half.

Reagan Ensor put the Warriors back on the board early in the third quarter with a 78-yard run.

Happy Valley, however, was unable to rally to trim into the Warrior lead.

Ensor had 92 rushing yards, while Sowards finished with 56 yards. Pedro Colunga added 44 rushing yards to the Warrior cause.

HV is set to return to action at Unaka next Thursday night.
