The West Warrior seventh grade used a strong running game to move to 4-0 on the season Thursday with a 32-8 victory over Scott City.

The West defense gave up some yards to the Scott City offense that ran a modified Wing-T, but the Warriors were able to keep the Blue Jays out of the end zone.

“Scott City executed really well,” West coach Butch King said. “They ran a counter play a lot, and we had some trouble with it. As the game wore on, we adjusted. We were running past the play by penetrating too deep. Scott City did a good job and moved up and down the field, but we only gave up one score. I was proud of our kids for getting stops.”

West may have given up time of possession in the first half, but they didn’t need to hold the ball very long to score.

On the first play, Cesar Burciaga broke loose for a 65-yard touchdown run on a sweep.

When West took over on their next possession deep in their own territory, Jose Aguilera dove up the middle and scampered 65 yards for another Warrior touchdown.

Jett Brown connected with Dylan Thompson on a 10-yard reception that Thompson broke for a 45-yard touchdown.

Burciaga again found some room around the outside on a counter play, and 70 yards later he was back in the end zone for a 26-0 Warrior lead.

Scott City put together a scoring drive before the half expired that was capped with a 15-yard touchdown reception.

“Their tight end got free on the back side,” King said. “We had people covering the right guys, they just executed well and got the score.”

West added a final touchdown midway through the third quarter hen Burciaga swept to the right side and scampered 78 yards for a touchdown and a 32-8 lead.

West started to substitute the rest of the way, and the defense continued to slow down the potent Scott City running game.

“The kids played great the whole game,” King said. “They have worked very hard all season.”

The Warriors (4-0) will travel to Garden City Thursday to face Kenneth Henderson.
