Warriors Upend Johnson County



Happy Valley took care of business Friday night.

The Warriors rolled to their first win of the season with a 24-6 victory over Johnson County on Warrior Hill.

After kickoff was delayed to 9p, it was well worth the wait for HV.

The teams traded possessions to open the game, and the HV offense found a groove on their second drive of the night.
Reagan Ensor hit Andrew Little for a 37-yard touchdown to give HV the early lead.

The Warriors continued to keep their foot on the gas as Landon Babb caught a six-yard touchdown pass from Ensor to increase the lead to 12-0.

Little caught his second touchdown pass of the night – this one for 69 yards – in the closing stages of the half as Happy Valley took an 18-0 lead into the locker room at the half.

The Warriors took full control in the third quarter as Ensor scored on a 23-yard touchdown to push the lead to 24-0.

Johnson County was able to break onto the board in the fourth quarter as Connor Simcox hit Nate Rice for a 17-yard score, but the HV defense shut down any thought of a comeback.

Ensor had 140 yards passing for the Warriors, while Little finished with 134 yards on five catches with two interceptions for the Warrior defense.

Pedro Colunga rushed for 108 yards on 25 carries.

Simcox was 18-of-32 for 171 yards for the Longhorns.

Happy Valley is set to return to action next Friday night with a trip to Cloudland for a nonconference matchup.
