WARRENTON — The Warrenton football team missed out on the playoffs, but the Warriors managed to finish the 2017 season on a positive note Friday, in a 35-20 loss to No. 7-ranked Clatskanie at John Mattila Field.

Once again, the Warriors held an early lead on Jacob Morrow’s 24-yard touchdown toss to Logan Fischer, and Fischer’s 15-yard touchdown grab from Morrow had Warrenton trailing just 19-13 at halftime.

But the next two scores belonged to the Tigers, on touchdown runs of 35 yards and one yard by Clatskanie quarterback Cooper Blodgett.

Fischer added a late, four-yard scoring run for the Warriors, as the senior running back rushed for 115 yards on 24 carries in his prep finale.

Defensively, Preston Miller intercepted two passes for Warrenton, which finishes 1-8 overall, 0-3 in league play.
