McAuley Warriors are playing the Ash Grove Pirates this Friday for the Pirates homecoming. The game will be played at Ash Grove, kickoff is at 7:00 P.M.
Going into this game having only one win, the Warriors want to end the night with huge win against Ash Grove. As of right now Ash Grove has a 4-0 record. The Pirates have beat Stockton (50-6), Cabool (57-25), Marionville (31-23), and Diamond with a whopping score of 43-0.
The McAuley Warriors this Friday will be starting a new quarterback, Collin Lowry. Lowry is a freshman and has been fighting against junior Adam Robertson for the starting position during pre-season and the beginning of the regular season. Lowry has put in a lot of hard work and sweat, it seems to be all worth it.
Head Coach Gubera says, “Collin Lowry has done a great job, if we didn’t have all the confidence in the world he wouldn’t be out there on the field this week. It was battle all summer, a battle clear up until the first week of the season before we truly decided that we were going to go with Adam. Collin had glimpses of greatness when he went in against Jasper; he got the ball out of his hand quick and he spread it out to different recievers. He’s a smart kid. He knows how to play the game the right way, he’s got a good head on his shoulders. He’s going to do a great job.”
The game will be at Ash Grove starting at 7:00. It is the Pirates Homecoming so come out and cheer the Warriors on.
