Collecting a share of the Class A District 4 title, sixth-ranked South Winn football team (6-1, 4-1) took down Starmont (1-6, 1-4) Friday, Oct. 9, at home.

The Warriors added the win to their tally, compiling 221 yards of offense as compared to Starmont’s 65.


Rebounding

Establishing a 15-play opening drive, South Winn dominated the clock in the first quarter, capping off the drive with a Cael Kuboushek 2-yard carry over the goal line. Adding the PAT was Zach Taylor to put the score 7-0 in favor of the home team.

“From there our defense and special teams put us in great field position the entire first half,” said Coach Jason Ohrt.

South Winn put up four touchdowns in the second period including a Jacob Herold two-yard plunge, a second Kuboushek run and a Logan Hageman 18-yard run. With 2:05 left before halftime, senior Dominic Sisneros returned a punt 97 yards to give the Warriors a 35-0 lead, which would stand throughout the second half.

“We improved in all areas this week and our seniors did a great job of emphasizing their focus on the big picture after a tough loss,” Coach Ohrt said.

Postseason begins Friday
