Warriors stop Mounts

It didn't take long for Warwick to assert itself in Friday's 55-14 [boxscore] victory over struggling Ephrata.

There would be no upset.

The Warrior offense looked focused and well-prepared from the first snap. Warwick had standout efforts from quarterback Tyler Trimarchi (8 for 9 119 yards), who threw for two scores and ran for another, along with running back Isaac Rissinger, who rushed for 124 yards and three scores.

Both Trimarchi and Rissinger were able to post great performances due due to an outstanding job by the offensive line, which opened up gapping lanes for the backs and offered solid pass protection.

That allowed Warwick to put up 48 unanswered points in the first half.

With Ephrata struggling to catch its breath on defense, the Warrior defense smothered any hopes of the Mounts establishing a running game and were able to force a turnover in the form of an interception by Dakota Enck.

It wasn't until the third quarter that the Mounts would find their way onto the scoreboard, when Ephrata's Brendan Holbritter hit teammate Alex Rummel for an 11 yard touchdown.

The Mounts would add another score early in the fourth quarter on a quarterback sneak by Holbritter. But that would be it for the Ephrata scoring, as the Warriors would put up one final touchdown later in the fourth on a 30 yard run by Ryan Deibler (11 carries 160 yards) to secure a definitive 55-14 win.
