Trick or treat at HMPL BY KIM PICKARD Gazette Newspapers JEFFERSON - The rain forced the Henderson Memorial Public Library’s Halloween costume parade indoors, but the trick or treaters still had a great time. The children paraded through the library stacks before listening to a Halloween story read by Miss Dee. Afterward, treats were passed out, pictures were taken, popcorn was munched on and faces were painted. Then the older children stayed to watch a showing of a movie based on the popular middle-grade scary books series “Goosebumps.”

GACS official questions charter Morgan Township school funding and state test scores seeks fire levy BY SADIE PORTMAN Gazette Newspapers GENEVA - Kevin Lillie, treasurer of Geneva Area City Schools, recently spoke out against state funding to charter schools by sharing a letter from Keystone Local Schools Superintendent Jay Arbaugh. “[I received] an e-mail from a Superintendent in Lorain County comparing public and charter schools ratings on the state report cards,” Lillie said. Lillie also shared report card data comparing GACS to Ohio’s charter schools dating from 2009 to 2011. “I’m waiting for the release of final report card data and posting on the Ohio Department Education website so I can do the same thing for fiscal year 2012,” Lillie said. “These reports show that the legislature’s investment in charter schools by siphoning away dollars from public schools has not fared too well.”

In the fiscal year 2011, GACS received an Effective rating, meeting 25 out of 26 indicators. Out of 12 local charter schools, only one school, Constellation: Outreach, received a higher rating of Excellent meeting six out of six indicators. Only two out of 12 schools received the same Effective rating, leaving five schools with Continuous Improvement ratings, three under Academic Watch and one rating at Academic Emergency. Lillie is concerned with these numbers and is upset at seeing charter schools receive state funding at the public school’s expense. Arbaugh’s letter shows the large amount of money being allocated to charter schools, even those who are failing in state testing. “The most recent budget that was adapted by the state legislature allocated over 600 million dollars of Ohio taxpayer money for the promotion of Charter schools,” Arbaugh said.

“That’s correct. Over 600 million dollars to promote charter schools at the expense of public school districts.” Arbaugh wants to see accountability on all levels. “Since increased accountability on every level is demanded for public schools, it should be incumbent upon the current legislation to demonstrate how that investment paid off,” Arbough said. Arbaugh said lots of time is wasted in the political arenas about schools and funding but he wants those talking to look at the data comparing charter and public schools. “The worth of that investment can be debated ad nauseam in the polarized political environment we live in,” Arbaugh said. “Rather than debate it, maybe we should just look at the recently released data from this week.” Arbaugh is concerned public schools are receiving less funding while charter

schools, which do not require any state funding, are receiving millions of dollars in funding. “Why isn’t the media questioning the legislators who approved this investment in charter schools while at the same time siphoning dollars away from public districts?” Arbaugh asked. Arbaugh sees the state and education at a crossroad and a choice is to be made on what will be upheld and funded in the future. “The data compares apples to apples and it would seem that our communities’ much maligned public districts compare very favorably,” Arbaugh said. “We are proponents of choice when it is in the best interest of students, but shouldn’t the choice be a good one?”

MORGAN TOWNSHIP – In addition to choosing from a host of political officials for federal, state and local government, Morgan Township voters will decide whether or not to approve the renewal of a 2.5 mill fire levy. The renewal is not an additional tax, but rather it is a continuation of the 2.5 mills already collected for each dollar of valuation of taxable property within the Township. If approved, the levy would continue to generate about $92,700 from Morgan Township, Rock Creek Village, and the Morgan Township portion of Roaming Shores Village (Morgan Hose coverage area). Assistant Fire Chief Steven Passerell called passage of the levy “crucial” in maintaining the firefighting Sadie Portman, reporter equipment, as well as many for the Gazette, may be other functions that are necreached at sportman@ essary in protecting and savgazettenews.com. ing lives.

Jefferson voters to decide whether to purchase old school property BY STEFANIE WESSELL Gazette Newspapers JEFFERSON - Thanks to a group of citizens, Village of Jefferson residents will vote to decide whether the village may purchase the building and property at the old Jefferson Elementary School on 104 E. Jefferson St. on Tuesday, Nov. 6. Known as the Concerned Citizens Group of Jefferson, the group fought for the right to vote on the matter, after council voted to purchase the property. Council worked out the deal with Jefferson Area Local Schools Superintendent Doug Hladek and other school officials last fall. As part of the agreement, the village would pay $300,000 for the remaining parcel of land and building at the old elementary school site. The deal consists of $150,000 in cash and an additional $150,000 credit package for in-kind labor and improvements spread over an unspecified period of time. The village intends to use the property for the police department, which needs the additional room, Village Administrator Terry Finger said. For the price, if passed, the village will receive a 12,000-square-foot building on nearly four acres of land. The police department would occupy the front 3,918 square feet of the building. The existing police department building would then be given to the fire department. The back part of the building would be used for something not yet determined. A group of citizens was unhappy with the vote by council, and collected enough signatures for a referendum but then had to fight in court to get the signatures deemed valid. The court ruled in the group’s favor, and now voters will decide on the matter. The Concerned Citizens

Group of Jefferson hopes voters reject the referendum, as the group’s members have concerns over the purchase. The main sticking point for the group is the price upfront and down the road. “We’re talking about $300,000 just to buy it alone,” former Councilor Ken Fertig said. Fertig also has concerns about the in-kind work that will be asked for as part of the deal. “We’re talking about using village employees on school property to do school work,” Fertig said. He said this action will also cause wear and tear on the village’s equipment. “Why will our village employees be required to work at the schools, when we are paying them to be working within the village maintaining our streets, sidewalks and grass mowing?” Jim Donathan asked. He also wondered why the school board thought $300,000 was a fair price to ask the community to pay. Another member of the group, Tina Fuller, believes the village should look at other options before committing so much money. “There’s a need for the police department to have more space, without a doubt,” Fuller said. “But this property, right now, is a lot of money.” She thinks the police department does need more room, but that buying this building isn’t the solution. “We have an inventory of buildings here in Jefferson. There has to be a more costeffective solution,” Fuller said. “It’s just sad that we had to get to this point - to put forward a referendum petition to get them to listen to us.” Fuller, Fertig and other members of the group have concerns about the building, including whether there will be public restrooms available if someone rents the

other half of the building for a party. They were of the understanding that the police department section, where the bathrooms are located, would be closed off from the portion of the building that may be rented out in future. (Jefferson Police Department Deputy Chief David Wassie said the public would still be able to use these restrooms.) Fertig also had some concerns about the layout of the building. He said right now when you walk into the current police department, you are immediately greeted by an employee at the front desk. In this new building, guests would have to walk through part of the building to get to the secretary area The group also is concerned about the cost of repairs to the building, and how much it would cost to convert the building into a police department. Fertig said the outside north wall needs a new brick face, as the bricks are starting to separate. He also pointed to wires hanging outside the building, and had concerns about the roof leaking. He said the flat roof on the old school has separation problems, and maintenance will be required. He cited an inspection report noting that trim flashing is separated from the wall, permitting water entry. Fuller said the driveway would also need to be repaved. “There’s a lot of stuff that would nickel and dime us,” Fuller said. Fuller said they support the police department 100 percent, but they believe there are other buildings the village can look at, including building on to the community center. She said the skate park was taken down there, leaving a cement pad where an addition could be built. Fertig and Fuller also talked about the village garage and space there that

BY SUE LUTZ Gazette Newspapers

could be used for some purpose. “We don’t need the extra work,” Fertig said of the deal. On the other hand, Jefferson Village officials believe the deal is good for the village and the school. Wassie said the village looked into adding on to the existing police building, and for $150,000 they could have built a 950-square-foot addition, making it a total of 2,262 square feet. This size is still too small to provide storage in the building, and the building is landlocked and unable to expand any bigger. This addition, although it would add some room, would remove valuable parking space, Wassie said. Mayor Judy Maloney said the additional $150,000 of in-kind work cannot exceed $15,000 per year and would be scheduled a year ahead and performed when practical. She also addressed the concerns about the cost of repairs to the building. She said Four Square Home Inspections had a state-certified inspector perform the building inspection. He determined that the building was in very good condition. The village also received an estimate from Housel Construction, Inc., that the minor repairs that were noted in the report could be repaired for less than $25,000, and this includes finishing the north end of the building. Wassie said this cost could be less than that, depending on who performs the work and how. Finger disputed Fertig’s claim that the roof leaked, saying the report refers to a caulking issue, with caulk just needing reapplied to the expansion point. He said there is no evidence of leaks in the building. Wassie said the depart-

that must be maintained and periodically replaced, Fiscal Officer Jean Brand said income from the fire levy is also used to pay for utilities, building repairs, insurance, gear, fuel, and the training and recruitment of volunteer firefighters. Passerell said mutual aid agreements and reciprocity with other surrounding fire departments actually make the fire department’s service area substantially greater. Morgan Hose volunteers have provided assistance to other fire departments such as Ashtabula City, Orwell, Andover and even Mentor. The current levy ends in 2012, with its proceeds being collected in 2013. The renewal levy would be for years 2013 to 2017. If the levy fails, Morgan Township will have two additional opportunities for voters to pass it in March and November 2013. Morgan Township Board of Trustees will meet Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. at Morgan Hose Volunteer Fire Department building.

Rock Creek Village seeks levies BY SUE LUTZ Gazette Newspapers ROCK CREEK – Rock Creek residents who head to the voting booths on Tuesday will determine the fate of two existing tax levy renewals to fund the Village’s operating budget for years 2013 to 2017. The renewal levies — for 1 mill and .96 mill respectively — are for each dollar of valuation of the taxable property within the village. If approved, both levies together could generate about $13,100 each year for Village operating expenses, such general maintenance, repair and administrative costs. While recognizing that times are tough financially for many residents, Rock Creek Village Mayor Beverly Martin said without the income generated by the levies, the Village is jeopardizing the safety of its residents through the inability to complete current and future public improvement projects. She said few projects come with no strings attached. Even sidewalk repairs under the “Safe Routes to School” grant may not require matching funds, but to be eligible, the Village hast to foot the bill for up front expenses such as engineer-

ing fees. In this case the Village has to pony up $5,000 to $10,000 before the sidewalk repairs can be accomplished. Apart from that particular grant, Martin said in most cases “we have to have match dollar for dollar.” “The majority of the grants that the Village applies for require matching funds,” Martin said. “Without the money to match these grants, we don’t stand a chance of getting any major projects completed.” On the long list of muchneeded repairs, Martin said fixing West Water Street is clearly on top. “We really want to fix West Water Street – it’s one of the main arteries into town, but we can’t do it without a grant,” she said. “We’ve patched it and patched it, and patched it, but we just don’t have the money to do it right on our own.” The current levies end in 2012, with proceeds being collected in 2013. The renewal levies would be for years 2013 to 2017. If the levies fail, Rock Creek Village will have two additional opportunities for voters to pass them in March and November 2013. Rock Creek Council will meet Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. at the Village Hall.

that has been implemented will be eliminated and also we have three teaching positions which will be reinstated based on enrollment,” Colluci said. “At this time it looks like it will be second, third and fourth grades.” If the levy fails, the district will continue to make cuts. “If the levy fails in November, the district will continue its slide to state-minimum standards,” Donatone said. “We’ve already begun that process by reducing buses for students to state-minimum standards.” The board members have not made final decisions on which programs would be cut, but they have discussed possibilities. “Right now we are investigating going into a minimum student days at the elementary level and eliminating our art, music and physical education teachers in grades [kindergarten] through eight,” Donatone said. The pay-to-play fees may increase as well. “With regards to athletics, we are also looking at implementing the full cost of our extracurricular programs,” Donatone said. “Right now at the high school, our student activity fee is $200 a year.” Donatone said the activity fee could go up hundreds of dollars for students and parents. Some were concerned the new schools have added costs to the district and wanted to know if the district would have saved money by maintaining the old schools. Director of Operations David Boyer said

“Right now it really comes down to a very difficult, difficult time for us,” Christine Seuffert, president of the board of education, said. The last time the district passed an operating levy was in 2000, which was a 5mills continuous levy. “There have been no new operating levies in the district since 2000,” Superintendent Joseph Donatone said. “I think it’s pretty remarkable that we’ve gone that long without bringing new funds into the district.” If the levy is passed, the district would not have another operating issue on the ballot for at least five years. “If we do pass this operating levy, this should take us out at least five years without asking or having to go back to the ballot for additional funds,” Assistant Superintendent Patrick Colucci said. If the levy does pass, the district plans take away some restrictions that have been implemented to save money and balance the budget. “If we pass this levy, we will reinstate all the busing. We will also reinstate the transportation that was eliminated for our county extracurricular,” Colucci said. “Also the junior high spring sports will be reinstated.” The school will also take away the activity fee and reinstate a few teaching positions. “Our pay-to-participate or activity fee

this is not case. “Operating the new buildings is much more cost effective than operating the old buildings,” Boyer said. Boyer used Lakeside Intermediate School as an example, stating it was built in 1915 with many of the original boilers and other equipment still in use. “A lot of the original equipment that was placed in that building is still there and now it’s very expensive to get parts for the equipment,” Boyer said. The board sees the new schools as a step forward, but without a passing of the levy, they will not continue to move forward in the programing offered. “To take steps backwards would be a very unfortunate thing,” Seuffert said. “I think most of you here understand the importance of education to a community.” Seuffert wants the students now to experience the same opportunities as previous generations received. “We don’t want to cheat people or students at younger age and have them miss out on things,” Seuffert said. Seuffert said the education she received was through the support of the community and they are asking for another generation of support so students can extend their future as well as the future of Ashtabula. “All of us went to school because somebody voted for levies for us, those of us who went to public schools in the State of Ohio,” Seuffert said.

ment also received an estimate on how much it would cost to move the police department to the new building. He said adapting the facility for the department is estimated at $5,599 (which includes an $800 cost to move the radio equipment), with labor being done by volunteers and certified contractors where needed. Maloney said the purchase would be made using incometax dollars, not real-estate dollars. She said a few years ago residents passed increasing the income tax from 1 percent to 1.5 percent, with the entire increase being ear marked for safety services. Wassie and Maloney also dismissed ideas that other buildings could be used, as there is no room in the other buildings, and if they expanded, the village would still have to pay those costs. Residents will decide whether they agree or not that the purchase is a good use of their money when they go to vote on Nov. 6.

Geneva Athletic Boosters Reverse New Cork Elementary Raffle to raise funds for Eagles sports building uses green technology BY JAN PERALA Geneva Area City Schools HARPERSFIELD TOWNSHIP - Geneva Area City Schools officials, community leaders, current and former students and teachers gathered to dedicate the new Cork Elementary School building on Sunday with thanks to a supportive community and Ohio School Facilities Commission for the new building’s provenance, reverence for the school’s rich heritage, and with vision for Cork students today and those who will learn in the building for generations to come. The Cork Elementary building is the final component in the Geneva district’s comprehensive construction

plan which began in 2002 with Geneva citizens’ support of a bond issue which allowed the district to construct a new secondary school, a new middle school and three new neighborhood based elementary buildings. Ohio School Facilities Commission picked up the tab for nearly 75 percent of the construction costs of the five new, technology filled buildings, all of which are designed to provide an optimal learning environment for Geneva students. The 43,953-square-foot Cork Elementary building includes spacious, light filled classrooms, a book lined media center, and an expansive cafeteria and gymnasium. An integral element of the new building’s dynamic learning

Grabelseka remembers walking through the halls of the old elementary as a fifth grader, towering over many of his classmates. Tours were given to the community and many marveled at the technology now available in the building. “The computer labs are amazing,” Cliff Henry, Harpersfield Township trustee, said. “I think it is so important to provide students with access to up-todate technology as they learn.” Henry said the township is proud of its school and the history behind the new and old buildings. “The township is proud to support the school board and the district in the building of this wonderful school,” Henry said. Many students smiled as they showed their parents their new building, knowing they will be the first classes to graduate

environment is the state of the art technology inherent throughout the building. A 30 bay computer lab, available to all students, was made possible through a technology grant secured by the district through Chardon based Fairmount Minerals. Document cameras which capture images for projection allow teachers and students to share and exchange information in the classrooms. A Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rated building, Cork Elementary was constructed incorporating environmentally conscious, “green” design elements to create a sustainable, energy efficient learning environment which makes maximum use of natural lighting.

Zappitelli and the board of education recognized the community’s wishes as they asked the school board to keep the elementary schools in the townships and not to combine all three at one location. Zappitelli has stood behind the progress of the new schools, and with Cork and Austinburg being the last two buildings to be built and dedicated, they have completed the 10

years of building in the district. “It has been 10 years since the bond issue passed for this construction project, and we have worked long and hard to plan for and build these buildings,” Zappitelli said. “Nothing makes me happier than to see how really thrilled the children are and how excited they are to come to school and learn in a state-of-theart environment.” Sadie Portman, reporter for the Gazette, may be reached at sportman@gazette news.com.

Hladek said there has been no increase in how much revenue the levies collect since they were first passed in 1993 and 1987. Because of the age of the renewal levies, they collect on the property values from that time. Hladek said the combined effective collection rate of the two levies has decreased to ap-

proximately 2.0 mills. The school district has not received more money as property values have gone up, school officials said. But if they don’t get renewed, it means less revenue for the district, and the district will once again have to look at making cuts, Hladek said. The school district is not asking for new money, just the voters’ support in renewing these existing levies, Hladek said.

Please vote on November 6

The winners are…

BY DOUG HLADEK Superintendent Jefferson Area Local Schools All registered voters are encouraged to exercise one of our greatest American privileges on November 6 and cast a thoughtful vote for the candidates and issues of their choice. Throughout Ohio there will be 194 school levies on the ballot, with 123 seeking additional funding. The rest are renewals asking to maintain current funding levels. No new taxes are being proposed by Jefferson Area Local Schools. Instead, voters are asked to say YES to two renewal levies for current operating expenses. Supporting the renewal levies will not increase taxes for property owners. Issue 42 is a five-year 2.0-mill operating levy first approved in 1987, while Issue 43 is a five-year 4.5 mill operating levy first approved in 1993. Approving the renewal levies will continue to provide the original revenue generated by the levy, while preventing a further loss of revenue to the district. Because of reduction factors over the years, the combined effective collection rate of the two levies has decreased to approximately 2.0 mills. As levies age, the dollars collected remain the same as when first approved, making it difficult for school districts to keep up with inflation. Also on November 6, Jefferson Village residents will be asked to consider a referendum vote to purchase the old Jefferson Elementary School building and approximately 3.89 acres of property. Jefferson Village plans to relocate the Police Department into the building. The Police Department plans to vacate their current facility and occupy 3,500 square feet of the building by remodeling three classrooms into offices, evidence storage, a private interview room, and locker room. The large cafeteria and fully equipped kitchen, as well as the surrounding land, will be available for future use by the Village. Last fall both the Board of Education and Jefferson Village Council approved resolutions for the sale and purchase of the old Jefferson Elementary School. The deal was for the Village to pay $150,000 cash and perform $150,000 of in-kind services for the school district. Village income taxes, collected from non-residents and residents earning income in the Village, will be used to purchase the property. No property taxes from Village residents will be used for the purchase. The Board of Education and Village Council support the deal because it benefits citizens they both serve with a more efficient and safe operation for the Police Department. Village voters are asked to approve the purchase. Our staff is working hard to provide the students of the Jefferson Area Local Schools the best education possible in a safe, caring environment. We thank our community for their past support and ask residents to please vote YES for the school issues and referendum on November 6. Check our website calendar or watch for announcements about our activities. For more information about your schools contact me at the Board of Education office (576-9180) or visit the district website www.jefferson.k12.oh.us.

Local levies to ponder in Geneva area BY SADIE PORTMAN Gazette Newspapers GENEVA - Geneva Township and Geneva-on-theLake Village both have levies on their local ballots during the Nov. 6 election this year. Geneva Township’s levy is a five-year, two-mills renewal levy for the fire department and emergency services the township receives. “It will raise about $100,000 a year for five years,” Trustee Robert Russell said. “It’s for fire protection within the township.” The township’s fire department is contracted

through the City of Geneva. The fire department depends on the funds to keep the department running and since the levy is a renewal, it will not create any addition taxes to residents. “That levy represents a substantial portion of our funding, so it would not be a good thing if it doesn’t pass,” Russell said. The levy creates twothirds of the department’s annual revenue and helps to keep the township safe and the department intact. Russell said if the levy does not pass, the township residents will notice a downgrade in their fire and emer-

Because the PTO as a group is sponsoring the book fair, the entire group will decide what to do with the money raised, Richmond said. Ideas on how to spend the money will be discussed at the next PTO meeting, and all parents are welcome, Richmond said. She said some ideas being considered include helping out classrooms during Right to Read Week, since there is no librarian anymore.

Vogel has since received many positive reviews about the children’s visit. “We had positive comments about the children and the joy they brought to the home,” Vogel said. The junior high school program, Club 212, also took part in the day by painting over graffiti in the Ashtabula Township Parks. “Students from Club 212 did a great job of painting over the graffiti under the Route 20 bridge,” Vogel said. Students took graffiti off bridges and the small PHOTOS BY SADIE PORTMAN buildings on the grounds.

The students are always encouraged to make good choices, but seeing firsthand how much work it takes to remove the graffiti, the students will then think twice taking a spray can to public property. “We certainly hope it encourages them to make good choices,” Vogel said. Whether it was sharing hugs and company or gloves and soap, the students made a difference in some ones lives, including their own. “It was a very successful day and everyone took away something good from the e xpe r ie nc e , ” Vo ge l said.

Lower Buckeye Grey defeats Lower Conneaut Blue BY BYRON C. WESSELL Gazette Newspapers CONNEAUT – The Conneaut Lower Blue hosted the Edgewood Lower Grey in a consolation playoff game in the Freeway Youth Football League on Saturday, Oct. 27. The Lower Buckeye Grey started with the ball first and used runs by Willie Walker and Chris Jones to score the first touchdown of the game. Walker ran for 35 yards on the first play from scrimmage. Chris Jones picked up eight yards and Jonah Anservitz picked up the Buckeyes second first down of the game. Chris Jones ran for ten more yards and Willie Walker capped the drive with a sixyard touchdown. The extra point was ran in by Jones for a 7-0 Buckeye lead. Conneaut responded behind runs by Jacob Sabo, Jake Slayton, Kevin Henderson and Joey Merlene. Jake Slatyon had runs of 15-yards, ten yards and a 33-yard touchdown. The extra point by Merline tied the game at 7-7. The Buckeye Lower Grey kept the pressure on by scoring on their next drive. Brian Bisby picked up a first down for the Lower Grey after a five-yard run by Walker. Chris

Jones then picked up the big yardage on the drive with a 38-yard run. Jonah Anservitz capped the drive with a 17yard touchdown. The extra point by Willie Walker made it 14-7. Chris Jones had a pair of tackles for losses on Conneaut’s next drive. Merlene got back eight yards, but Conneaut would be forced to punt the ball away. The Buckeye Lower Grey kept things going on the ground as Chris Jones, Bisby, Walker and Anservitz all had runs. Zach Van Damn picked up a tackle for loss for Conneaut, but Bisby eventually picked up a first down on another run. Chris Jones would cap the drive with his first touchdown of the game with a 3-yard run, making it 20-7. The extra point was run in by Bisby, making it 21-7 going into halftime. After short gains by Jake Sabo and Kevin Henderson the Conneaut drive stalled due to a tackle for loss by Walker. Zach Rice then took over on defense for Conneaut with a tackle for loss and a fumble recovery on back-to-back plays. Chris Jones and Zach Furman combined for a sack for the Buckeye Lower Grey to force a fourth down situation. Anservitz picked up another tackle for loss to create a turnover on downs. The Conneaut squad had some hope left in the game after an interception by Jake Slayton. Slayton then picked up gains of 12-yards, 20-yards and 23-yards to spark life into the Lower Blue. Jake Sabo capped the drive with a touchdown, making it 21-13. Kevin Henderson added the extra point on a short run to cut the lead to 21-14. The Lower Grey drove to the other side of the field behind several nice runs by Austin Jury as they ran out the clock to win the game. The Lower Conneaut Blue team consists of: Zachary VanDam, Cody Sayre, Jake Slayton, Robby Beals, Jacob Sabo, Joey Merlene, Nathan Koston, Moses Schwartz,

Warriors chase away Eagles BY ALLAN MONONEN Gazette Newspapers ASHTABULA TOWNSHIP It was Senior Night at Corlew Stadium. Senior Dylan McCaleb made it his night and helped his Edgewood Warriors run away from Cleveland JFK with a 39-0 victory. With a playoff position remote but still possible, the Warriors needed a win. McCaleb and the Warrior D made it a reality to keep themselves in the playoff chase. McCaleb rushed for a game high 209 yards which put him over 1000 yards for the season. “That was one of our goals, to get him over 1000. He was awesome, the backfield was awesome, the O line was awesome,” Warrior coach Dom Iarocci said. The visitors had the initial possession. On their third play, a pass was intercepted by Warrior Riis Smith who sped down the north sideline for 60 yards and a touchdown.
