By Ray Hamill — It’s no secret what the Del Norte Warriors do. They just do it so well, few teams can stop them.
In fact, only one has managed to do so this season — Mazama back in September — and since then the Warriors have rolled to seven straight wins, including a comfortable 28-7 playoff victory over Moreau Catholic on Saturday night.
The victory sets up an NCS Division-5 championship showdown against No. 1 seed Encinal next weekend, the Warriors’ first ever appearance in an NCS championship.
And they can thank their relentless running game and physical hard-hitting defense for getting them there.
“It’s rinse and repeat. That’s our recipe every game,” head coach Nick White said. “We wear people down. We run the ball and we play great defense.”
